Lately, medical practitioners increasingly understand the harmful effects of sleep apnea. A recent study demonstrates how the condition relates to chronic diseases such cardiovascular diseases, blood pressure, and diabetes. With the emergence of these diseases comes the need to carry out extensive studies to find a cure for sleep apnea. With an extensive background in healthcare, Dr. Avi Weisfogel, the founder of Dental Sleep Masters leads the cause in search for sleep apnea treatment. He plays an integral role in leading other medical practitioners to diagnose and treat sleep apnea victims. Statistics indicate that only 10% of people suffering from sleep apnea are diagnosed.
Acknowledging that sleep apnea is a condition that requires increased awareness, Weisfogel teams up with other sleep disorder physicians to find treatment for the condition. Together with his team at Dental Sleep Master, Dr. Avi Wesifogel has created a model that integrates care and sleep doctors and sleep labs. According to Dr. Avi Weisfogel, the model demonstrates a breakthrough in better care for patients and increased opportunities for medical practitioners. The model fosters collaboration between dentists and physicians in pursuit of sleep apnea treatment. Scientists believe that sleep apnea treatment will increase in the future as more breakthrough surfaces. However, the model requires dentists to devote a significant portion of their practice attending to sleep apnea patients.
Clinical care will continue to improve as scientists develop new, advanced technological devices. Since many sleep apnea patients responds negatively to the previously developed treatment equipment, ImThera Medical has developed a new appliance, THN Sleep Therapy used for experimentation in clinical trials. As technology evolves, scientists are developing smaller and user-friendly treatment equipment. The invention of new, advanced technological devices will encourage sleep apnea patients to seek a cure for the condition.
