Why is Ventilator The First Choice For Treating Snoring?
Now more and more hospitals have begun to widely publicize the harm of snoring and the benefits of ventilator treatment of snoring. Many people may wonder why a ventilator is the first choice for the treatment of snoring?
Wasn't surgery recommended before? Why do many hospitals now recommend ventilator treatment? What are the advantages and characteristics of ventilator therapy for snoring?
Snoring gives people the impression that the person who snores snores as soon as they put their head on the pillow, and sleeps really fast and soundly. Snoring is often synonymous with good sleep.
Many people envy those who snore, because they rarely snore and think their sleep is not deep enough.
However, on the contrary, snoring can cause repeated apnea during sleep and lead to different degrees of hypoxia, thereby causing hypertension, coronary heart disease, arrhythmia, myocardial infarction, angina pectoris, cerebral infarction, stroke, pulmonary heart disease, malignant Diseases such as tumors and sexual dysfunction are particularly damaging to the cardiovascular and cerebrovascular systems, and can lead to sudden death in severe cases.
At the same time, due to daytime sleepiness, people with apnea-hypopnea syndrome are particularly prone to traffic accidents when driving.
Therefore, it is particularly important to effectively prevent snoring and apnea.
At present, the preferred treatment for patients with apnea-hypopnea syndrome at home and abroad is positive airway pressure (CPAP), that is, ventilator therapy.
According to foreign data, the current effective rate of CPAP treatment has reached more than 80%.
In particular, the fully automatic single-level ventilator has an AUTO CPAP mode, so users don’t have to worry about not being able to operate it. The machine system will automatically detect and provide the required pressure, which is very easy to operate.
Simply put, when the airway collapses (limited or completely blocked airflow), the ventilator provides a continuous pressure to the airway to open the collapsed airway to ensure that air can enter the lungs smoothly, thus solving the problem of snoring. and suffocation and hypoxia. Therefore, the ventilator treatment of snoring and suffocation can be effective at night. After using it, you will feel particularly energetic the next morning, and the sleepiness and drowsiness during the day will be greatly improved.
Ventilator therapy for snoring is not only effective overnight, but also non-invasive and painless.
Because the ventilator needs to be used during sleep, many snoring patients have misunderstandings about the ventilator and think that the use of the ventilator during sleep is a very painful process.
In fact, the ventilator for treating snoring does not feel any pain after using it. It only feels that there is something on the face that you are not used to. This feeling also varies from person to person, and most users can adapt to it within 1-7 days.
Compared with the trauma and side effects of surgical treatment of snoring, the biggest feature of surgical treatment is that the recurrence rate is very high. The soft tissue after the operation is very easy to regenerate, and we have encountered many patients who have relapsed 1-2 years after the operation to choose a ventilator.
It is for these reasons that more and more doctors are recommending the use of ventilators for snoring patients.
