Sleep apnea is a very serious medical condition, and for those that suffer from it, it can cause very dramatic life changes. Having to sleep with a continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) machine can make getting a full night's sleep more difficult, and your spouse or partner might feel nervous after witnessing your breathing change or stop during the night. At Houston ENT & Allergy in Katy, we can provide treatment for your sleep apnea and help you breathe and sleep better each night.
The majority of those that suffer from sleep apnea are over the age of 40, and they may have had it for several years before a diagnosis was made. Shallow breathing while sleeping or consistently loud snoring are the primary signs of sleep apnea, and making an appointment with an ENT specialist as soon as possible is the best way to avoid more serious problems. Cessation of breath during sleep can be very alarming for both you and your spouse, and can lead to other health problems. The condition can be life-threatening, so proper treatment is key for anyone that suffers from it.
At our clinic in Katy, our team of doctors and nurses will conduct a thorough examination and determine if you do have sleep apnea. If you do, we'll recommend the necessary treatment or equipment that will help you sleep better at night, and remove the worry of your breathing suddenly stopping. You'll feel more rested in the morning, and you'll have more energy for your daily activities. Schedule an appointment with Houston ENT & Allergy today!
