Management of obstructive sleep apnea with a palatal …

I snore and that frequently prevents my wife from getting to sleep, or wakesher up when she is sleeping. That is why I became interested in treating theproblem. As an orthodontist I had from time to time read about various devicescreated by dentists that had been used with various degrees of success inpatients who snore or had sleep apnea accompanied by snoring. In 1988 whileattending the national meeting of the American Dental Association I chanced upona dentist, Dr. Tom Meade of Albuquerque, New Mexico. He had researched theproblem of the prevention of sleep disorder and had fabricated a device that hispatients could easily place in their mouth and wear comfortably during the nightthat successfully treated snoring in a number of patients. He called it"Snore Guard" He was presenting his device for the first time at thisconvention.

Dr. Meade now calls his device the "Therasnore" and purports thatit is 87% successful in the treatment of snoring/obstructive sleep apnea. I ampart of that success story.

A Neural Prosthesis for Obstructive Sleep Apnea — …

AB - Obstructive Sleep Apnea Syndrome (OSAS) is a disease characterised by episodes of upper airways obstruction during sleeping time with significant decrease (hypopnea) or absence (apnea) of oronasal air flux. In the fifth and sixth decades, 2% of women and 4% of men present OSAS. Diagnosis requires a multidisciplinar approach and the treatment can be medical, surgical or with prosthesis. ENT surgeon is supposed to select just those cases that can benefit from surgery. These are cases in which previously non-invasive therapies failed: a refuse of CPAP by the patient and multiple obstructive sites should be documented. This paper deeply describes the surgical techniques that can be used in apnoic patients. Over the last few years, though, we have noticed how high could be the failure rate in phase I surgery. Therefore, a complete information on the disease and a good selection of patients should be recommended.

Management of obstructive sleep apnea in an …

AB - This chapter focuses on neural prosthesis proposed for treating obstructing sleep apnea (OSA). OSA affects 2-4% of the adult population and is most commonly seen in middleaged and overweight men. The degree of severity of the OSA is determined by the apnea-hypopnea index (AHI), which means the number of apneic and hypopneic episodes occurring per hour. The OSA patients develop upper airway occlusions related to the prolapse of the tongue and its surrounding structure into the pharynx. This prolapse has been attributed to diminished neuromuscular activity in the upper airway dilating muscles during an occlusion. During wakefulness, OSA patients have an augmented genioglossus activity compared to normal, which however may be lost during sleep thereby generating a collapse of the airways. Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is also associated with arterial oxygen desaturation and consequent arousals from sleep. It involves a gradual degeneration of the upper airways (UAW) mucosal receptors in addition to a progressive deposition of lipid tissue in the UAW lumen. This gradual loss in muscle tone and inherently narrow UAW anatomy, both of which facilitate larger negative intraluminal pressure swings during inspiration, are considered the main factors that predispose individuals to OSA. Electrical stimulation of the UAW muscles that control the tongue can prevent the collapse of upper airways and decrease the AH index. The implant of the cuffelectrode in the neck is an invasive approach but not as invasive as other surgical therapeutic approach such as maxillomandibular advancement. Hypoglossal nerve stimulation has also been shown to be safe and well accepted in patients. This procedure has not yet been FDA approved and the development of such a device will require a significant effort, particularly in the area of synchronization.
