Snoring & Sleep Apnea Help, Rancho Cucamonga

If you or someone you love suffers from snoring, you might be losing more than just a good night's sleep. It may be a sign of sleep apnea. Obstructive sleep apnea causes an individual to stop breathing for 10 or more seconds, sometimes hundreds of times each night. If left undiagnosed and untreated, sleep apnea can lead to serious health problems such as high blood pressure, stroke, depression and obesity.


Millions of Americans suffer from sleep apnea, with only a minority actually diagnosed. Once diagnosed, they are usually treated with CPAP or surgery. CPAP stands for "Continuous Positive Airway Pressure." It is a machine that delivers a stream of compressed air through a plastic tube to a nasal pillow, nose mask or full-face mask, splinting the airway (keeping it open under air pressure) so that normal breathing becomes possible. While CPAP is considered the "gold star" standard for treatment of severe sleep apnea, only an estimated 43% of patients actually wear their CPAP masks because they can be uncomfortable and hard to sleep in. If sleep apnea sufferers aren’t using CPAP, it’s not helping!
