Having trouble sleeping? Is your significant other keeping you up at night with their snoring? If their snoring is severe, and marked with pauses in their breathing, they could be suffering from sleep apnea, a condition which occurs when an individual’s breathing repeatedly pauses, stops and starts, or is low throughout the night. Common symptoms of sleep apnea tend to be severe snoring and extreme daytime fatigue.
Many people who suffer from extreme sleep apnea are prescribed CPAP machines by their doctors. A CPAP machine is a medical device designed to address this sleep disorder by delivering a constant positive airflow through a person’s nostrils while they sleep, preventing their soft pallet from collapsing. It is not surprising that most people find CPAP machines to be cumbersome and uncomfortable to wear during sleep. And most people with milder sleep apnea are unaware that a solution to their sleep apnea could be found in something far simpler, like positional therapy. This remedy manages symptoms through controlled sleep postures and can be used in tandem with an adjustable mattress.
For those who suffer from sleep apnea, lying on your back, or in the “supine” position, makes the collapsing of the airways worse. For milder forms of sleep apnea, using an adjustable bed in conjunction with positional therapy is a proven method to quickly remedy this problem, as sleeping propped and supported at a comfortable angle will prevent the issue.
