Sleep Well - Snoring-Treatment

The cause of snoring (ronchopathie) needs to be detected first for a diagnosis and the dysfunction properly located.
Is the dysfunction located around the nose area or the area of the soft palatines and the uvula or lower, in the retrolingual area, or are they altogether responsible for the dysfunction?
To determine this question a thorough examination of your waking and sleeping characteristics is necessary.

If ronchopathy is properly diagnosed, and after thorough questioning and examination, the patient is informed and given a system (polygraphy) to record different parameters (oxygen saturation, heart rate, respiratory movement of the chest, position of the body, respiratory sounds) in order to record sleep at home.
If the Polygraph substantiates the tentative diagnosis of sleep apnoea the patient will be transferred to a sleeping medicine clinic for further examination.
Experts for sleeping medicine are capable of monitoring the sleep even more thoroughly.
The patient stays between one and two nights for sleep to be monitored in a sleeping chamber. The analysis of polysomnographic records allows the diagnosis of sleep apnoeas and facilitates us to advise the optimal treatment.

After accurate cause study and precise diagnosis we can recommend a balanced snoring therapy. In this context the observation of so-called sleep-hygiene measures as well as the treatment of risk factors are important.
Furthermore, surgical intervention might be recommended such as the reduction of the conchae by radio frequency or laser, the straightening of the nasal septum, a surgery in the area of the palate and the uvula with help of radio frequency or laser, a diminution of the retrolingual region, a removal of the palatine tonsils or even an insertion of soft palate implants.

Our main goal is the prevention of chronic health disorders by means of an early and exact diagnosis of sleep apnoea and consecutive launching of an individual therapy which is best suited to your needs.
