  • Causes of Snoring Nasal Obstruction Enlarged, Uvula, Soft Palate, Tougue Enlrged Ts Ads Lack of Muscle tone upper airway Air Turbulance in the oropharynx Vibration of soft palate and uvula Venturi Effect-Bernoulli principle
  • Causes of Snoring 1
  • Causes of Snoring -Nasal
  • Sleep ApneaWhat is Sleep apnea? Stoppage of breathing while asleep More than 10 seconds 100-500 episode of apneas in one night Plus Hypopneas Cause Hypoxia and HypercarbiaTypes of sleep apnea Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) Most common-loud snoring Obstruction of upper airway Central Sleep Apnea (CSA) Brain stem lesion, stroke, polio, tumors No snoring Mixed sleep apnea (OSA+CSA) Chronic respiratory failure>central
  • Signs and symptoms of sleep apnea Choking or gasping during sleep Loud snoring Sudden awakenings to restart breathing Waking up in a sweat during the night Feeling tired in the morning Headaches Daytime sleepiness Lack of concentration,fatigue,irritable Low O2- Brain and Heart
  • Diagnosis of Sleep Apnea Good History from spouse or parents Physical examination-Nose and Throat Voice recording Flexible Endoscopy CT imaging or MRI retropalatal and pharyngeal airway Sleep study-Polysomnogram Cardiac evaluation
  •  C:Documents and SettingsAdministrato drpaulose clinic.jpg
  • CT Scan Retroplatal Airway-PN Ratio CT adenoid and soft palate.JPG
  • CT imaging adenoid.JPG
  • Sagital CT-PN ratio Pharyngeal Narrowing Ratio-Its significance Soft palate-tongue contact and automatically calculated pharyngeal narrowing ratio (PNR), defined as a ratio between the airway cross- section at the hard palate level and the narrowest cross-section from the hard palate to the epiglottis Soft palate should therefore be the target for causal treatment of snoring, LAUP, CAUP, RF somnoplasty all aimed at the soft palate in OSA surgery.
  • Polysomnography - Sleep lab study Brain electrical activity –EEG ECG Eye and jaw muscle movement Leg muscle movement Airflow Respiratory effort (chest and abdominal excursion) EKG Oxygen saturation
  • CPAP CPAP3.jpg
  • Treatment of Snoring and Sleep ApneaConservative Weight Loss Avoid Alcohol Dental devices, dilators Avoid sleeping pills or narcotics before bed Stop Smoking Dont sleep on your backSurgical Treatment Glossectomy Mandibular osteotomy Hyod advancement Nasal surgery, Septal surgery,LAPT RF Somnoplasty UPPP-LAUP+Coblator surgery Ts Ads Tracheostomy-last option
  • LASER TYPESLaser is an acronym that stands for Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation. The first concept of the laser was initiated by Albert Einstein in 1917.CO2 LaserArgon laserThe Nd:YAG (Neodymium:Yttrium-aluminum- garnet)The potassium-titanyl-phosphate (KTP)Diode Laser
  • Co2 Laser CO2Laser The CO2 laser is the most versatile laser in otolaryngology. The carbon dioxide (CO2) laser emits a colorless, infrared light at a specific wavelength of 10,600 microns, which has an extremely high affinity for the intercellular water of cells. A second, built-in, coaxial helium neon laser is necessary to indicate with its red color the site where the invisible CO2 laser beam will impact the target tissue. This laser, then, acts as an aiming beam for the invisible CO2 laser beam.Advantages of Laser Surgery Fast Painless Bleeding-nil Fast recovery No hospitalization if done under LA GA for difficult casesDisadvantages of Laser Cost of equipment and maintenance Special surgical skills Increased setup time of equipment Need of safety eyewear Increased care for patient safety - explosion or fire hazard. smoke
  • Other Non surgical treatment Dental splint Nasal dilator Nasal drops Treatment of allergy CPAP Machine Yoga breathing Tennis ball on pyjama!!!
  • Laser surgery for snoring and OSA LAUP (Laser Assisted Uvulopalatopharyngoplasty) involves removal of the uvula, shorten the soft palate and reduce the volume of the tonsils using CO2 laser done under-LA / GA LAPT-Laser assisted Partial turbinectomy LAS-Laser assisted septoplasty LAT-Laser assisted Tonsillectomy
  • Results of Laser surgery showed the correction of sleep apnea by an average of 70-80% However, the snoring sound reduction was between 75-95%.Side Effects post op infection -rare nasal fluid reflux –temporary nasal regurgitation for few days, but rarely permanent no voice changes were noted Bleeding-rare Dryness of throat-rareCauses of fauilure if any mixed apnea-central component Inadequate excision of tissues-Redo Obesity,alcohol,sedative Lack of muscle tone in the neck Base of tongue factor-coblator reduction Jaw factor-need mandibular advancement
