The Effect of Nasal Septum Deviation on Sleep Apnea
Nasal Septum Deviation and Sleep Apnea
|Sleep apnea - Nasal septum deviation - Effect of nasal septum deviation on sleep apnea - Intranasal airway resistance - CPAP intolerance|
In addition, in patients using CPAP (Continuous positive airway pressure), nasal masks are more difficult to tolerate in patients with nasal obstruction.
Nasal obstruction negatively affects the treatment of sleep apnea with many different mechanisms. In these patients, nose surgery is usually recommended with weight loss.
When nasal airway resistance increases due to nasal septum deviation, a decrease in blood oxygen level is inevitable. In patients with obstructive sleep apnea syndrome, it is intended to treat the reduction of airway resistance, so that nasal septoplasty operations can be combined with intraoral operations for snoring and sleep apnea.
