Sleep apnea is usually treated with a machine called CPAP (continous positive airway pressure), which blows air into the nose via a nose mask, keeping the airway open and unobstructed. For more severe apnea, a Bi-level (Bi-PAP) machine is used to blow air at two different pressures.
Advice & Tips:
After I changed to a mask that covers both nose and mouth I quit having side effects of dry moth. I watch my head position so my esophagus does not open and fill my stomach & gut with air.
