Are you affected by obstructive sleep apnea and in search of a straightforward and efficient solution to enhance your quality of life? Look no further than AIRLIFT. This innovative treatment gently elevates and secures the hyoid bone and tongue base, ensuring that your airway remains open and free from collapse.
What is Sleep Apnea?
Do you experience snoring, gasping, and pauses in breathing during sleep? These could be symptoms of sleep apnea, a condition where tissues in the throat block the airway. Other signs include daytime sleepiness, memory problems, and tiredness. It’s crucial to seek medical help if you have sleep apnea. Luckily, AIRLIFT is an effective sleep apnea treatment to manage the condition and reduce the risk of serious health issues.
Dangers of Ignoring Sleep Apnea
Sleep apnea is serious and, if left untreated, can have many negative consequences for your health and well-being. It increases the risk of cardiovascular problems, it affects insulin sensitivity—leading to type 2 diabetes and metabolic syndrome—and people with sleep apnea are prone to mental health problems. This is due to reduced quality of sleep, which hampers brain function.
Why Choose AIRLIFT?
AIRLIFT is performed via two small incisions under your chin. A special suture captures the hyoid bone using a custom suture passer. This suture is then advanced, lifting the hyoid bone and tongue base away from the back of the throat, and then secured in this improved position. This simple and safe procedure has minimal complications.
Long Lasting Results
AIRLIFT increases the airway space and prevents it from collapsing. The results of this procedure are long-lasting, greatly helping your quality of life.
No Interference on Daily Activities
AIRLIFT is comfortable and convenient with no interference in daily activities of patients such as eating, drinking, or speaking. There is no need to wear any device such as CPAP masks while sleeping. It also may help avoid side effects of medications.
The AIRLIFT sleep apnea treatment is performed in an outpatient setting in less than 30 minutes. Results can begin to be felt anywhere from immediately to 2 to 4 weeks after the treatment.
Sleep apnea is a very serious condition. If untreated, it can lead to many physical and mental health issues. AIRLIFT is a safe and effective sleep apnea treatment that provides immediate results without hampering your daily life.
