There are many people in the medical field who believe that sleep apnea is an almost impossible to solve mystery. Well, there is a group of doctors that have been studying the disorder and they are making headways in understanding the disorder and looking for appropriate therapies that can help treat it. Dr. Avi Weisfogel has been leading the team that is looking into the disorder and has established that there is a connection between sleep apnea and all lifestyle diseases that affect the cardiovascular system. The team has therefore doubled their efforts in getting treatment for the disorder.
One of the challenges that the people looking for a solution to the disorder face is the fact that almost 9 out of 10 of people that suffer from sleep apnea have not been properly diagnosed with the condition. Lack of diagnosis means that they are not actively looking for any form of treatment; Dr. Avi hopes that his team can create more awareness about the problem so that people can look for a diagnosis.
A model has been created by the team to make sure that a sensible treatment has been achieved. The team is comprised of dentists and physicians. There are well equipped labs and they have also hired sleep experts to help with the study. The dentists are important to the process because they are the ones who mostly diagnose the condition.
Sleep apnea is a challenging problem for most patients because it puts them under a lot of stress. Studies have shown that people who suffer from the condition wake up more than 30 times within the same night. The treatment model is focusing on stimulating the upper airways thus helping people breathe better at night. The machine they have modeled has already gotten FDA approval.
Avi is a trained and well experienced dentist. He has been practicing since the year 2000. He is a graduate of Rutgers University and also undertook additional training in dentistry. He is a well respected and loved member of the medical community. He has received numerous community awards for his charisma, expertise and his love for helping humanity.
