The best alternatives to CPAP therapy

Obstructive Sleep Apnea is one of the most common sleep disorders in the country, with more than 18 million Americans suffering from some form. When faced with this diagnosis, the most effective treatment is a continuous positive airway pressure machine, or CPAP.

Understandably, many people find CPAP machines noisy, uncomfortable, or just plain cumbersome. There are a few alternatives to using a CPAP machine that you might find helpful, though it's important that you talk with your doctor before ditching a CPAP machine altogether. Join Dr. Breus as he explores some of the alternative methods for reducing the symptoms of sleep apnea.

  1. Thanks for this video. I’m actually having a good experience with CPAP, but I like keeping up to date on alternatives, as well as developments in sleep apnea science. Your channel really helps me be a better informed sleep apnea patient.

  2. I’m 29 and was just diagnosed after finding your website. When I told my doctor, she was shocked and said I was too young and thin to have sleep apnea. I bet there are tons of people who are undiagnosed because of that type of thinking.

  3. As a dentist, I’m always surprised sleep doctors forget to mention that the MAD is going to destroy their occlusion.
    I suppose the benefice/risk balance of treating the sleep apnea vs creating occlusal problems is positive but nonetheless…
