Sleep apnea has ravaged the lives of a countless number of people worldwide. While researching for a cure, it became evident that there was indeed a strong degree of correlation between sleep apnea and conditions like diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, obesity and even strokes. Therefore, finding a remedy for the lack of sleep would consequently result in a cure for the related medical issues as well.
Dr. Avi is among the leading researchers and voices in this particular realm. His works are responsible for the discovery of numerous techniques and treatments. It is now well-known that there is indeed a correlation between oral hygiene and sleep. Dentists are now more involved in sleep apnea than at any other time in all recorded history.
The medical experts are forced to go back to the drawing back to rethink strategy. The remedies which used to work in the past cease being effective, and new approaches have to be developed. One of the most recently introduced mechanical treatments for sleep apnea is the THN Sleep Therapy developed by ImThera Medical. The device is approved by the Food and Drug Administration for use in clinical experiments.
New age treatments for this condition are smaller in size and inconspicuous. They are easier to use, and the implant devices often work quietly in the background. A majority of the inventions available today act by keeping the upper airway channels open. They relax the muscles in the upper airways, and this induces sleep.
The FDA issued a go-ahead and a green light to innovations targeting the stimulating the upper airways in 2014. Dr. Avi Weisfogel considers the new solutions as a win-win scenario. Here’s why: Doctors help to find a definitive cure for sleep apnea, and they also make some money on the side in the process.
