Sleep apnea

  1. 1. Snoring And Sleep ApneaSnoring and Obstructive Sleep Apnea: in the U.S.Oral Appliance Therapy Management Approximately 40% of adults over 40 years old snore (about 100 million Midwest Society of Orthodontists Americans) October 16-17, 2009 4% of men and 2% of women have signs and symptoms of OSA (about 12 million Americans) Anthony J DiAngelis DMD, MPH Chief, Department of Dentistry, HCMC Professor, University of Minnesota School of Dentistry OSA is as prevalent as diabetes or asthma Definitions Defining Severity of OSAApnea: Cessation of ventilation for > 10seconds Length of time in apnea eventHypopnea: 30-50% reduction in airflow > 10 Percentage decrease in oxygenseconds desaturationApnea Index (AI): Average number of Apnea-Hypopnea Index:apneic episodes per hour of sleep Mild OSA= 5-15 events/hour Moderate OSA= 15-30 events/hourApnea-Hypopnea Index (AHI): Average Severe OSA= >30 events/hournumber of apnea plus hypopneas per hour ofsleep. Obstructive Sleep Apnea Dangers of Obstructive Sleep Apnea Individuals with OSA: 5 x more heart attacks 30-45% high blood pressure 50% stroke patients have OSA Loss of Employment Uninsurability Marital Discord Increased Role of MVA’s (20%) 1
  2. 2. Clinical Signs & Symptoms Predisposing Factors Snoring: Intermittent with pauses Excessive daytime sleepiness Age: Prevalence progressively increases with advancing age Awakenings / gasping or choking Obesity: Prevalence progressively Fragmented, non refreshing Fragmented non-refreshing, light increases with increasing weight sleep Gender: 5 to 10 times more common in Poor memory, clouded intellect males Irritability, personality changes Disproportionate upper airway anatomy ET0H, sedative-hypnotic drugs in late PM Decreased sex drive, impotence Hypothyroidism Morning headaches Diagnosis Management of Snoring and OSA Non-Surgical Avoidance of risk factors Pharmacologic agents – not very effective Positive airway pressure (continuous or bilevel) Oral appliance therapy Surgical Tracheostomy Uvulopalatopharyngoplasty – UPPP LAUP Pillar Procedure Hyoid Suspension/Genioglossus Advancement Max. / Mand. Advancement How Do They Work? Oral appliances are worn in the mouth during sleep to preventOral Appliance Therapy the oropharyngeal tissues and p y g the base of tongue from collapsing and obstructing the upper airway. 2
