PATENTED Sleep Apnea Relief Wedge – A Comfort System with Adjustable Inclination COMFORT+. 39″ wide, 30″ deep bed wedge system that inclines to 45 degrees. An Amazon.com exclusive Product

  • The COMFORT+ (C+) is a patented bed wedge system that provides relief to most who suffer from obstructive sleep apnea by keeping the tongue structure from collapsing onto the throat airway . This C+ variable inclination feature can incline the patient’s upper body to approx. 45 degrees like hospital beds. The C+ is the only bed wedge system to be granted the “Orthopedic Research Institute Seal of Approval” due to its patented design.
  • The C+ extra-wide design of 39 inches (widest wedge on marker) allows one to turn comfortably onto either side while sleeping and still enjoy the benefits of inclination. The firmness of the upper body support mattress can be adjusted from firm to soft independent of the inclination angle of the bed wedge. Fast-Fill electric pump included.
  • The C+ system can be used as a two-chamber bed wedge on top of your existing mattress or as a three-chamber sleeping system (twin mattress size) when used outdoors while camping or on the floor of the TV room. As a bed wedge, simply tuck the deflated third air chamber under bed wedge so your buttocks and legs rest on your own mattress.
  • The C+ was invented by a sleep apnea patient who cannot use the CPAP. It is designed for patients who need ‘aggressive’ upper body inclination due to snoring, acid reflux, gerd, gastroesophageal reflux, heartburn, indigestion, hiatus hernia, back & neck pains, sinus or general problems while in the flat bed position. The user will NOT “fall off’ the C+ as they will fall off a 24′ and 27” foam bed wedge.
  • BENEFITS: 1) Natural apnea relief through upper body inclination. 2) More restful sleep on one’s back or one’s side. 3) More comfortable sleep by controlling the firmness of the independent wedge mattress chamber. 4) Deflates and stores into a small travel bag (16x16x20) for easy transport on your travels. 5) Allows you to enjoy the great outdoors while getting unobstructed sleep.

Dental Marketing For Sleep Apnea Patient Leads Is Now Easier With New IDA Dental Marketing Plans

Dental Marketing For Sleep Apnea Patient Leads Is Now Easier With New IDA Dental Marketing Plans














(PRWEB) August 22, 2012

Now dentists who provide sleep apnea treatments can save time and get more new patients by implementing an online dental marketing strategy from Internet Dental Alliance, Inc. (IDA). The New Patient Marketing Machine™ is a complete turnkey toolkit that includes dental websites (or Portals), listings in IDA’s nationwide network of online Dental Directories, and a host of other tools – all designed to attract new patients looking for solutions to their snoring and sleep disorders.

According to dental marketing resource TheWealthyDentist.com (TWD), most consumers who suffer from sleep apnea don’t know that dentists can treat it. Moreover, unless dentists are actively promoting sleep apnea treatments as a service their practice offer, other dental professionals in their area won’t be making referrals, either. For dentists who have the clinical skills and requisite continuing dental education, this represents a dental advertising opportunity that could grow their practice and increase the number of high-value patients they treat.

“Many patients don’t realize that their dentist may be able to help them sleep more soundly,” said dental management consulting expert and founder of Internet Dental Alliance, Inc., Jim Du Molin. “Dentists can use their IDA dental website to educate patients as well as other medical professionals about the sleep apnea treatments they offer, and increase the number of high-value patients they see each month.”

The New Patient Marketing Machine™ uses IDA’s proprietary automated LeadFire search engine optimization (SEO) technology to create customized dental websites that attract specific markets online. Using the online Control Panel, the doctor selects sleep apnea as the primary dental market focus. LeadFire then automatically sets up the practice’s primary Web Portal with more than 100 market-targeted and customized lead generation pages in less than 10 minutes.

For additional lead generation, doctors also have a listing on IDA’s Dental Directory at 1stSleepApnea.com. The site serves as a consumer resource for patient prospects who want more information about sleep disorders, snoring, CPAP masks, etc., and who want to find local dentists who offer related treatments. Leads are generated when site visitors fill out an online form to find a local dentist and their contact information is collected.

About Internet Dental Alliance, Inc.

IDA is North America’s largest provider of dental directories and websites for dentists. It completed its unique Lead Fire lead generation system in 2012. LeadFire technology automates dental SEO and content marketing and allows doctors to begin generating new patient leads within minutes of set up.

My daughter has CENTRAL sleep apnea. They want to cut out her (SMALL!) tonsils & adenoids. Do you recommend?

September 3rd, 2012

They spoke of how horrible it will be — congested nose, pain in throat and ears — all for a 60% chance of it helping. So, she goes through terrible pain for 2 straight weeks, just to find it didn’t help.. Then I forced my child to go thru painful, ineffective SURGERY.
Her numbers were high, and she was listed as SEVERE. They did an MRI of her brain and found nothing. So no idea how it got to be CENTRAL, not so much obstructive. I really need advice.

My daughter (age 9) just had a tonsils and adenoid taken out because of apnea. It was not two weeks of severe pain, she was playing soccer a week later. Yes, she said it hurt but said it wasn’t that bad, as long as she kept with the pain meds. She actually said that she wishes they would grow back so she could get them out again for the benefit of gifts, endless popsicle, and special treatments (ok, maybe she is a ‘bit’ weird). The ear pain is what got her the most, she said the throat wasn’t that bad…but after she took the meds she was fine 15 minutes later.

As for why they would take them out for central sleep apnea when obstruction is not causing it, I have no idea. Do more research on that. But, if taking them out will help even a little then fear not about the horror stories, its not as bad with modern technology.

Florida Dental Sleep Disorders Opens New Vero Beach Location Giving Sleep Apnea Patients a Way to ?Scrap Your CPAP?

September 1st, 2012

Florida Dental Sleep Disorders Opens New Vero Beach Location Giving Sleep Apnea Patients a Way to “Scrap Your CPAP”











Vero Beach, FL (PRWEB) August 30, 2012

Kenneth A. Mogell , DMD is pleased to announce the opening of the new Florida Dental Sleep Disorders office in Vero Beach with practice limited to treatment of snoring and obstructive sleep apnea using oral appliance therapy. The new Indian River County office is located at 3735 11th Circle, Suite 105. This office, conveniently located across from Indian River Medical Center, will allow obstructive sleep apnea patients living in Vero Beach and surrounding communities access to oral appliance therapy solutions for snoring and sleep apnea.

Dr. Mogell has extensive training in treating patients with jaw joint disorders and facial pain and has been helping these patients for almost 20 years. Assisting patients suffering from sleep disordered breathing is a natural extension of his experience and makes him uniquely qualified to treat snoring and sleep apnea with comprehensive, non-surgical oral appliance therapy.

“I realized that many of my patients were forced to drive very long distances to receive oral appliance treatment after finding they were unable to tolerate CPAP” said Dr. Mogell. “I look forward to offering patients in Vero Beach and surrounding communities a comfortable, non-invasive option for treating their obstructive sleep apnea.”

Dr. Mogell works closely with area sleep physicians, cardiologists and internal medicine physicians. He feels that “Communicating patient progress to all of the physicians involved in patient care is key and I am very excited to be working closely with Indian River County sleep specialists.”

Obstructive sleep apnea is a life threatening condition that goes undetected in the majority of sufferers. Patients with obstructive sleep apnea repeatedly have dangerous pauses of breathing during sleep which deprives the body of oxygen. Untreated sleep apnea is linked to heart disease, stroke and other serious medical conditions. Patients also experience lifestyle issues such as extreme daytime sleepiness, memory issues and increased risk of motor vehicle and other accidents.

Dental sleep medicine treats obstructive sleep apnea using an oral appliance, a custom fabricated mouthpiece that is designed to reposition the jaw so that the airway cannot become blocked during sleep. “CPAP is the gold standard for managing sleep apnea but about half of patients prescribed CPAP find they cannot tolerate sleeping with the device. Studies have shown that oral appliances are effective and well tolerated by most patients,” explained Dr. Mogell.

Dr. Kenneth A. Mogell graduated from the University of Florida College of Dentistry and received his undergraduate degree in Nursing from Florida State University. Although he attended both universities Dr. Mogell is a Seminole at heart and enjoys traveling to Tallahassee to attend football games. He is a member of the American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine and the American Academy of Sleep Medicine. Practice at the Vero Beach location will be limited to treatment of sleep apnea and snoring. Dr. Mogell’s Boca Raton office offers a full range of dental care, treatment of TMJ (jaw joint) dysfunction and dental sleep medicine.

For more information about obstructive sleep apnea , including diagnosis, treatment options and to schedule a consultation please contact Florida Dental Sleep Disorders at 772-882-6800. More information on this dangerous condition can be found by visiting http://www.scrapyourcpap.com where you can also complete a questionnaire to see if you might suffer from obstructive sleep apnea.
