Abdulfakih - Therapy Thread

RE: Abdulfakih - Therapy Thread
My suggestion that CPAP may not be able to resolve upper airway restriction because it is very limited in offering pressure support, which is how bilevel can absolutely resolve flow limitation. That is why I specifically mentioned the Vauto. I don't understand how you arrived at thinking a surgical option was even being contemplated. We don't konw the physiologic cause of your upper airway restriction. Some people find relief with nasal surgery, and others benefit from upper airway surgeries like tonsillectomy or uvula. This is not our expertise here, and some surgeries can have permanent negative effects.

Good day sleeprider do you think if he use oral cpap mask it would help ? I mean if the problem arising from uvela and soft palat  that could interrupt sleep by snoring ,flow limitation , skip breathing from mouth and breath through mouth to lungs
