Sleep Apnea Relief Wedge – A Comfort System. Patented Adjustable Inclination COMFORT+ product. 30″ wide, 30″ deep bed wedge system that inclines to 40 degrees. Commercial-Grade. An Amazon.com exclusive product

  • The COMFORT+30 (C+30) 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. The C+30 ‘variable-inclination’ feature can incline the patient’s upper body to approx. 40 degrees (like hospital beds). The C+30 is the only bed wedge system to be granted the “Orthopedic Research Institute Seal of Approval” due to its patented design.
  • The COMFORT+30 width of 30 inches allows one to turn comfortably onto one’s favorite 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. Commercial-Grade construction makes the C+30 almost indestructible.
  • The COMFORT+30 system is used as a two-chamber bed wedge on top of your existing bed mattress and as a three-chamber sleeping system when outdoors while camping or on the floor of the TV room. When used as a bed wedge, simply tuck the deflated third air chamber under the wedge so your buttocks and legs rest on your own mattress.
  • The COMFORT+30 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 sleep apnea, snoring, acid reflux, heartburn, indigestion, hiatus hernia, back & neck pains, sinus problems and others. The user will NOT “fall off” the C+ as they will fall off a narrow 24′ and 27″ foam bed wedge.
  • BENEFITS: 1) Maximum inclination of approx. 40 degrees means more open airways and less apnea. 2) Wide design allows for more comfortable/relaxed and worry-free inclined sleep. 3) Independent air chambers allows for individual adjustment of inclination and mattress support firmness. 4) Deflates and stores into a small travel bag (16x16x20) for easy transport. 5) Allows you to enjoy the great outdoors while getting unobstructed sleep.

THE ‘COMMERCIAL-GRADE’ C+30 IS SPECIFICALLY DESIGNED FOR USE ON A QUEEN SIZE BED.
This patented comfort system (C+30) is the only bed wedge system to have earned the prestigious Orthopedic Institute Seal of approval. It is designed to bring relief to the countless millions who just cannot wear the CPAP mask. It helps control nightly sleep apnea by inclining the upper body up to 40 degrees like a hospital bed. This aggressive semi-vertical inclination keeps the tongue structure from collapsing o

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.

Snoring Isn’t Sexy, LLC Launches Discussion Forum for the Public

Snoring Isn’t Sexy, LLC Launches Discussion Forum for the Public

Ferndale, WA (Vocus) July 6, 2009

Snoring Isn’t Sexy, LLC, the web’s fastest growing source of information on dentistry’s responsibility in the recognition and management of snoring and sleep apnea, announces the launch of an open discussion forum for both the public and doctors.

 

It has been estimated that in the United States alone 20 million men, women and children suffer from obstructive sleep apnea. Millions more snore. Of these 20 million, only about 10% have been diagnosed despite the fact that the average life span of an untreated sleep apneic is years less than those without sleep apnea. Snoring and sleep apnea have been related to heart disease, heart attacks, high blood pressure, stroke, diabetes, obesity, depression and erectile dysfunction as well as vehicular accidental injury and death. The increased medical costs of those with untreated sleep apnea are estimated to be in the billions a year.

 

“Unfortunately many physicians and patients are unaware that dentists play a role in the management of sleep apnea. Developing this forum will give all of us at Snoring Isn’t Sexy the opportunity to engage the public directly in a conversation about how we, as dentists, can help those who snore and have sleep apnea,” said Dr. Barsh. ” We feel this is a natural progression from a static web site into one that is interactive.”

 

While nasal CPAP is still the primary treatment for sleep apnea, recent research has proven that oral appliance therapy , in the hands of a specially educated dentist and with the appropriate case selection, can be as effective as CPAP. Oral appliance therapy for snoring and sleep apnea has been approved for use in mild to moderate sleep apnea when a patient is unable or unwilling to utilize a CPAP device.

Dr. Barsh and the dentists associated with Snoring Isn’t Sexy, LLC feel strongly that management of sleep-breathing disorders is a shared responsibility of both the medical and dental professions.

12 Natural Treatment Tips for Insomnia, Sleep Apnea, and other Sleep Disorders!

April 11th, 2011

http://www.mystic-sleep.com/index.htm?aff=y/84 Sleep is the natural state of bodily rest. When you sleep, your body rests and restores its energy levels. Consistently good sleep helps you cope with stress, solve problems and recover from illness, and helps ensure long-term physical and mental well-being.

* Infants require about 16 hours a day
*Teenagers need about 9 hours on average
* Most adults need 7 to 8 hours a night for the best amount of sleep, although some people may need as few as 5 hours or as many as 10 hours of sleep each day
*Women in the first 3 months of pregnancy often need several more hours of sleep than usual

Recommendations
You can optimize your health and quality of sleep by:

1) Reversing Damage – Years of stressful living caused damage to your body and mind. To help reverse this, Mystic Sleep releases hundreds of phytonutrients that act at the molecular level to normalize hormone levels, support brain function, alleviate mental duress, remove toxins, restore your immune system, and reinstate healthy sleep cycle.

2) Set a Schedule – Go to bed at a set time each night and get up at the same time each morning. Disrupting this schedule may lead to insomnia. Avoid napping during the day. “Sleeping in” on weekends also makes it harder to wake up early on Monday morning because it re-sets your sleep cycles for a later awakening.

3) Exercise – Try to exercise 20 to 30 minutes a day. Daily exercise often helps people sleep, although a workout soon before bedtime may interfere with sleep. For maximum benefit, try to get your exercise about 5 to 6 hours before going to bed.

4) Avoid Caffeine, Nicotine, and Alcohol – Avoid drinks that contain caffeine, which acts as a stimulant and keeps you awake. Sources of caffeine include coffee (100-200 mg), soft drinks (50-75 mg), non-herbal teas (50-75 mg), chocolate, diet drugs, and some pain relievers. Smokers tend to sleep very lightly and often wake up in the early morning due to nicotine withdrawal. Alcohol robs people of deep sleep and REM sleep and keeps them in the lighter stages of sleep.

5) Avoid Using Sedatives – While you might fall asleep, the complete restorative sleep cycle will be not realized. You might awaken feeling unrefreshed, groggy, or hungover. Once you stop taking the sedatives, you might suffer withdrawal symptoms which will further interfere with attainment of natural sleep.

6) Drink Milk – Milk contains a substance called tryptophan. The body uses tryptophan to make serotonin, a chemical in the brain. Serotonin helps control sleep patterns, appetite, pain, and other functions. Milk does not contain enough tryptophan to change sleep patterns, but drinking a glass of milk before bed may help you relax.

7) Avoid Large Meals / Excessive Fluids – This might cause you to awaken due digestion problems or urination.

8) Relax before Bed – A warm bath, reading, or another relaxing routine (deep breathing, yoga, meditation) can make it easier to fall sleep. You can train yourself to associate certain restful activities with sleep and make them part of your bedtime ritual.

9) Don’t Lie in Bed Awake – If you can’t get to sleep, don’t just lie in bed. Do something else, like reading, watching television, or listening to music, until you feel tired. The anxiety of being unable to fall asleep can actually contribute to insomnia. Don’t expose yourself to content that is prone to increase anxiety – like the news.

10) Create a Sanctuary – Make sure your bedroom is dark and quiet. Use eye shades or earplugs if needed. Maintain a comfortable temperature in the bedroom. Extreme temperatures may disrupt sleep or prevent you from falling asleep.

11) Minimize Snoring – Sleep on your side to minimize snoring and breathing problems.

12) Sleep until Sunlight – If possible, wake up with the sun, or use very bright lights in the morning. Sunlight helps the body’s internal biological clock reset itself each day. Sleep experts recommend exposure to an hour of morning sunlight for people having problems falling asleep.

Mystic Sleep stops the cycle of sleep problems. It increases production of melatonin which keeps your circadian rhythm in tune, thwarts the production of cortisol (the “stress hormone” which at elevated levels prevents sleep), regulates cyclical nocturnal surges of growth hormones which interfere with your sleep cycle, stimulates production of neurotransmitters to alleviate irritation and depression caused by insufficient rest, releases antioxidants to combat free radical damage and inhibit deterioration of brain function, supports liver and metabolic processes to remove toxins from your body, aids in production of Leptin which reduces your craving for excessive calories (Leptin is depleted by lack of sleep thus increasing chances of obesity), introduces bio-enhancers to increase availability of nutritional substances to help restore your body’s immune system, and counteracts tension and high blood pressure.
