There are many treatments available for Central Sleep Apnea

Welcome to Aria Sleep Centre, where we prioritize your sleep health and well-being. Central Sleep Apnea (CSA) is a distinct sleep disorder that we specialize in treating. Unlike Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA), which involves airway blockages, CSA occurs when your brain fails to send the appropriate signals to the muscles responsible for breathing during sleep, resulting in temporary pauses in breathing. These interruptions can lead to fragmented sleep and various health complications. Identifying and addressing CSA is crucial as it not only improves the quality of your sleep but also enhances your overall health and daytime functionality.


Symptoms of Central Sleep Apnea

Shortness of breath causing waking from sleep is a common symptom experienced in sleep disorders like Central Sleep Apnea. This occurs when a person’s breathing repeatedly stops and starts due to the brain failing to send proper signals to the muscles that control breathing. When the body recognizes low oxygen levels or high carbon dioxide levels, it triggers an awakening response to resume breathing. This leads to abrupt awakenings often accompanied by gasping or choking, disrupting the normal sleep cycle and causing the individual to feel tired and drowsy during the day.
Excessive daytime drowsiness is a condition characterized by persistent sleepiness and a general lack of energy during the day, even after a full night’s sleep. It’s often a symptom of various sleep disorders like sleep apnea, insomnia, or narcolepsy. This persistent drowsiness can interfere with work, school, activities, or daily life. In some cases, it may be so severe that individuals unintentionally fall asleep during routine activities such as reading, watching TV, or even driving. It’s important to seek medical attention if one experiences excessive daytime drowsiness, as it can signal an underlying health issue that needs treatment.
Mood changes are a common symptom experienced by individuals with Central Sleep Apnea (CSA). The condition, characterized by repeated interruptions of breathing during sleep, results in poor sleep quality and chronic sleep deprivation. This lack of restful sleep can have a significant impact on emotional health, leading to mood swings, irritability, anxiety, or depression. The recurring cycle of disrupted sleep and subsequent daytime fatigue can exacerbate these mood changes, making it essential for individuals experiencing such symptoms to seek medical evaluation and treatment.
Difficulty concentrating during the day is often a symptom of Central Sleep Apnea (CSA). With CSA, the brain intermittently fails to signal the muscles to breathe during sleep, resulting in repeated awakenings throughout the night. This disruption in the sleep cycle often leads to poor sleep quality and excessive daytime sleepiness. As a consequence, individuals may experience cognitive effects such as memory problems, lack of focus, reduced attention span, and difficulty concentrating during the day. This can impact productivity, academic performance, and overall quality of life, highlighting the importance of addressing and treating the underlying sleep disorder.

Central Sleep Apnea Treatments

Invasive Treatments

Invasive treatments, such as surgical procedures, offer effective solutions for sleep-related disorders when non-invasive methods aren't successful. A prime example is the CAUP Coblation Snoring Surgery, which improves airflow by meticulously reshaping or removing obstructive tissues.

Non-Invasive Treatments

At Aria Sleep Clinic, we offer effective and non-invasive treatments for sleep-disordered breathing, with CPAP therapy being the gold standard for treating Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA). Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) is a quiet, portable, and easy-to-use device that delivers gentle and continuous airway pressure throughout the night, preventing obstructions and ensuring better sleep quality.

Daytime Treatment

In our Daytime Treatment program, we offer comprehensive strategies to tackle sleep-related challenges that affect your daytime performance. Through a personalized approach, our experts will guide you in optimizing your sleep schedule, improving sleep hygiene, and implementing relaxation techniques to enhance your daytime alertness and overall well-being.
