Sleep Apnea

At Allen ENT, we provide diagnostic services and treatment for patients experiencing conditions of the ear, nose, throat, head, and neck in Allentown, PA and Bethlehem, PA. We offer treatment and care for a variety of different conditions including sleep apnea.

Sleep Apnea causes disturbances during sleep when breathing becomes interrupted. There are two different types of sleep apnea which include central sleep apnea and obstructive sleep apnea which is caused by an airway blockage. Sleep apnea causes poor concentration, sleepiness during the day, fatigue, headaches, memory trouble, and in some cases depression. It is often accompanied by loud snoring and episodes of stopped breathing during the night.

Causes of Sleep Apnea Include:

Sleep apnea can be remedied by avoiding sedatives and alcohol within close proximity to bedtime. Dental devices that are placed in the mouth during sleep are used to keep the jaw in a forward position. However if these remedies prove ineffective, the ENT physicians of Allen ENT can provide you with treatment for your sleep apnea condition. Some options for the treatment of sleep apnea which we may recommend include continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) therapy and in some cases, surgery.
