Narcolepsy Symptoms and Treatment | Los Angeles - Malibu - Thousand Oaks | (805) 557-9930
 
06:08
http://www.SleepMD4U.com - In this session, Dr. Popper discusses a sleep disorder called narcolepsy. Narcolepsy is manifest by a symptom complex consisting of excessive daytime sleepiness, cataplexy, sleep hallucinations and sleep paralysis. All of these symptoms do not need to be present to make a diagnosis of narcolepsy, but when excessive daytime sleepiness and cataplexy are present the diagnosis can be made clinically. In the absence of cataplexy a sleep study and another type of study called a multiple sleep latency test are required to confirm the diagnosis. What is narcolepsy? Let's look at the components of narcolepsy. Daytime sleepiness can be found in many disorders such as sleep apnea, periodic limb movements during sleep, shift work, it could be the result of medication or other medical disorders so daytime sleepiness by itself is not a sufficient symptom to make a diagnosis of narcolepsy. 
What is cataplexy? Cataplexy is the sudden and uncontrollable loss of muscle tone that can occur either out of the blue or in response to some kind of trigger. The two most common triggers being laughter and anger. But any strong emotion, be it joy, fear, being startled, getting into an argument, even during climax during sexual activity, any strong emotion can set off this sudden loss in muscle tone. This can be manifest by the complete dropping to the ground which is the classic textbook form of cataplexy, which is rarely seen to much more subtle manifestations such as the sudden shaking of a hand while holding a coffee cup, slurring of your speech, a little blurring of your vision. If you're working on a computer your fingers might not move quite as well as they ordinarily move. These symptoms can last, literally, from seconds to as long as 20 to 30 minutes. Patients come out of their cataplectic episodes often feeling drained but often they will also be as wide awake as they were just prior to the episode. Sleep hallucinations or paralysis are just as the name implies. Patients will have a hallucination seeing or hearing or smelling an object or a sound or sensation that they know isn't there as they are falling asleep or right as they are waking from sleep. More commonly are sleep paralysis episodes where, again, as the name implies, patients are paralyzed. They're wide awake after they've awakened int he morning or just as their falling asleep. They are aware of their surroundings but are completely unable to move. These episodes can last for just a few seconds or even up to 10, maybe 20 minutes and the patient will come right out of it. These are completely benign but they may be very, very frightening to the patient. Narcolepsy is not as rare as we once thought it was. Narcolepsy is more common in males, compared to females. The peak onset of symptoms occurs in the teenage years. We have seen symptoms occur as young as 5 or 6 year old children and patients who are well into their 30's. Patients who first present with symptoms of narcolepsy after the age of 40 must rule out other sleep disorders first before considering a diagnosis of narcolepsy. And if one takes a very, very thorough history, retrospectively, most patients will demonstrate symptoms way back into their teenage years or into their 20's. Dr. Ronald A.

Sleep Apnea Tips #4 - Home Testing | Thousand Oaks, CA | 805-557-9930
 
05:53
http://www.SleepMD4U.com - In this video session, Dr. Popper will discuss home sleep testing for Obstructive Sleep Apnea; when it is appropriate, and how to proceed correctly for a more accurate diagnosis. Home sleep testing has recently been approved by the American Academy of Sleep Medicine for patients who will not or cannot participate in a clinical sleep study, or whose health insurance will not cover a sleep center study. Home sleep testing is most appropriately used for patients who have a high probability of suffering from obstructive sleep apnea but do NOT suffer from other co-morbid medical conditions such as congestive heart failure, previous heart attack, diabetes, or chronic lung disease, among others. Home sleep testing is not appropriate for everyone, and it's important that your test results be interpreted by a board certified physician at an accredited sleep center to be sure that your diagnosis is not the outcome of a false positive or a false negative result.

Difference between CPAP and BiPAP for Obstructive Sleep Apnea - Sleep Apnea Thousand Oaks - Malibu
 
01:40
http://www.SleepMD4U.com – (805) 557-9930 – What is the difference between CPAP and BiPAP for the treatment of obstructive sleep apnea. Dr. Ronald Popper produced this video FAQ series on obstructive sleep apnea and other sleep disorders, as well as chronic severe snoring, to address your general questions about sleep and sleep disorders. In this video, Dr. Popper discusses the difference between CPAP and BiPAP for treating obstructive sleep apnea. If you would like to discuss specific details about your condition, feel free to get in touch with Dr. Popper using the contact information below. You can also subscribe to our YouTube channel to be alerted when a new video is posted. "CPAP (Continuous Positive Airway Pressure) provides positive airway pressure at a constant level during both inspiration and expiration. BiPAP (Bilevel Positive Airway Pressure) provides a higher pressure during inspiration and a lower pressure during expiration. The primary usefulness of BiPAP is in patients who experience difficulty exhaling while using CPAP. By lowering the expiratory pressure, patients are more comfortable breathing against the positive air pressure. Patients often ask why we don’t just start with BiPAP if it is more comfortable? Simply, most patients do fine with CPAP and the BiPAP units are much more expensive than CPAP. Less than 2% of my patients require BiPAP. Hello. I'm Doctor Ronald Popper, thanks for watching.

Nasal Congestion and CPAP - Sleep Apnea Thousand Oaks -Malibu - Westlake Village - Dr. Ronald Popper
 
01:49
http://www.SleepMD4U.com -- Welcome to Dr. Ronald Popper's video FAQ series on sleep disorders. In this video, Dr. Popper discusses the problem of nasal congestion experienced by many patients when using a CPAP mask. If you suffer from this, and would like to know what to do to relieve the problem, this video may have your answer. Dr. Popper created this video series to address your general questions about obstructive sleep apnea and other sleep disorders. If you would like to discuss specific details about your condition, feel free to get in touch with Dr. Popper using the contact information below. You can also subscribe to our YouTube channel and be alerted when a new video is posted. Patients complain of increased nasal congestion when using CPAP. What can be done for this? To combat nasal congestion with the use of CPAP we strongly urge all patients to use a heated humidifier with their CPAP system. Additionally, aggressive treatment of nasal allergies will often resolve this. For my patients who complain of nasal congestion with the use of CPAP, I often prescribe a nasal steroid spray to be used in the morning, a nasal antihistamine spray to be used in the evening, and sometimes even the addition of a Breathe-Right strip which goes across the nose which will help open up the nostrils and make breathing more comfortable. Sometimes we will need to use additional allergy medications such as antihistamine and decongestant tablets or even allergy desensitization shots.

Part Two - Restless Leg Syndrome | Restless Limb Syndrome | Malibu, CA (805) 557-9930
 
05:39
http://www.SleepMD4U.com - In this session, Dr. Popper discusses some of the treatment options for restless limb syndrome. The primary treatment class of medications for this are known as dopamine agonists. This is a class of medication used primarily for the treatment of Parkinson's Disease. When using these medications for the treatment of Restless Limb Syndrome we use them in a much smaller dose than we would use for Parkinson's Disease and therefore the potential side-effects are much less The most common drugs within this classification are Mirapex or pramipexole and ropinirole or Requip. The most common side-effects that occur when using these medications include headache or nausea, increased sleepiness or fatigue, and some patients feel drugged or have difficulties upon rising the next morning. There's a black box warning that talks about a very uncommon side-effect which is sudden uncontrollable sleep attacks. This is almost never seen in patients with Restless Limb Syndrome and has primarily occurred in patients with Parkinson's Disease who are taking vastly larger doses of this medication than patients with Restless Limb Syndrome would ever take. In addition, there's a small incidence of an increase in compulsive behaviors; compulsive gambling, compulsive shopping, compulsive lying, compulsive sexual activity, any compulsive behavior can occur within this class of medication.

Why Use Humidification with CPAP? - Stop Snoring - Malibu - Thousand Oaks - Dr. Ronald Popper
 
02:00
http://www.SleepMD4U.com -- Welcome to another installment of Dr. Ronald Popper's video FAQ series on sleep disorders. In this video, humidification for nasal CPAP is the topic of discussion. This video FAQ series has been produced to answer your questions about obstructive sleep apnea and other sleep disorders. If you don't see your question addressed here, please subscribe to our YouTube channel and you will be alerted when a new video is posted, or feel free to get in touch with Dr. Popper using the contact information below. Why is humidification advised with the use of nasal CPAP? In my patients, I always advise that they use a humidifier along with nasal CPAP. The nose is your body's natural humidifier. With nasal CPAP, air is blown into the upper airway at a very high flow rate which makes it impossible for your nose to adequately humidify your air. The air then dries out the lining of the nose. The nose lining consists of millions of hair-like structures which are constantly beating and brushing away bacteria and dirt and dust from the upper airway. If your nasal mucosa is dried out because you're not adequately humidifying the air the cilia, or hair-like structures, fail to beat adequately increasing the risk of infection and increased allergy symptoms. Humidification is vital for both comfort and nasal hygiene.

What Causes Sleep Apnea? - FAQ 2 - Los Angeles - Malibu - Thousand Oaks - Dr. Ronald Popper

http://www.SleepMD4U.com -- This is the second video in a series designed to address some of the most frequently asked questions regarding sleep disorders. If this video doesn't answer your particular question, subscribe to our channel to be alerted when a new FAQ video is posted by Dr. Popper. What Causes Obstructive Sleep Apnea? Upper airway tissue obstruction can occur from a deviated nasal septum, which is the cartilage that runs up and down the middle of the nose, or from enlargement or hypertrophy of the turbinates, which are these ridges that occur within the nose. Some patients will have a droopy soft palate, which is the structure in the back of the throat. The uvula is often enlarged. That's the little "punching bag" that occurs in the back of the throat. The tonsils can be enlarged. And the tongue is often enlarged. When the tongue is enlarged, it may come up very close to the soft palate. The soft palate may droop down nearer the tongue, and you may have very little opening in the upper airway. From the side view, this structure drops down, like so, creating blockage in your airway. In addition, in patients with an overbite where the lower jaw is set back, the tongue is then pushed into the airway, further compromising the obstruction of the airway. If you have lesions on the vocal cords, they may also obstruct the airway.

"CPAP (Continuous Positive Airway Pressure), as the name implies, provides positive airway pressure at a constant level during both inspiration and expiration. APAP (Auto-Adjusting Positive Airway Pressure) works by altering the positive airway pressure breath by breath, using a complicated mathematical formula to predict the pressure requirements based upon airflow characteristics. The theory being, that the pressure required to treat obstructive sleep apnea while sleeping on your back is higher than the pressure required during side sleeping. However, many patients find that sleep with APAP is not as refreshing as with CPAP, presumably due to the frequent changes in pressure which cause arousals from sleep. Hello.

Sleep Apnea and Hypertension - Sleep Apnea Thousand Oaks - Malibu - Westlake Village - Ronald Popper

http://www.SleepMD4U.com – (805) 557-9930 – How does obstructive sleep apnea make hypertension harder to treat?. Dr. Ronald Popper produced this video FAQ series on obstructive sleep apnea and other sleep disorders, as well as chronic severe snoring, to address your general questions about sleep and sleep disorders.

If you would like to discuss specific details about your condition, feel free to get in touch with Dr. Popper using the contact information below. You can also subscribe to our YouTube channel to be alerted when a new video is posted. How does sleep apnea make hypertension harder to treat? When a patient stops breathing, the oxygen level drops. In an effort to increase oxygen levels, blood vessels constrict, thereby increasing blood pressure and blood flow and oxygen to the brain and the heart. In addition, when a sudden arousal from sleep occurs, there is a release of adrenaline and other mediators that, over time, will narrow and stiffen blood vessels thus leading to high blood pressure. Successfully treating obstructive sleep apnea can reverse these changes and result in lowering the blood pressure. If you suffer from high blood pressure and a sleep disorder such as Obstructive Sleep Apnea Syndrome, the two conditions may be related. Hello, I'm Doctor Ronald Popper. Thank you for watching.

Caring for CPAP masks is relatively simple. Every morning, when you remove your mask, take a soft, soapy suds solution such as an Ivory dishwashing solution and simply soap it up liberally, and rinse it off and let it air dry. Never, never, never use harsh chemicals or detergents on the mask as this will accelerate the deterioration of your mask material, leading to air leakage and mask discomfort. Proper care of your mask will make it last longer, allowing you to use the mask for three to six months.

http://www.SleepMD4U.com – (805) 557-9930 – How Does Alcohol Affect Sleep Patterns? Dr. Ronald Popper produced this video FAQ series on obstructive sleep apnea and other sleep disorders, as well as chronic severe snoring, to address your general questions about sleep and sleep disorders.

If you would like to discuss specific details about your condition, feel free to get in touch with Dr. Popper using the contact information below. You can also subscribe to our YouTube channel to be alerted when a new video is posted. Alcohol acts like a sedative. It will make you sleepy and you will fall asleep more quickly. You'll have a deeper sleep during the first part of the night. However as the alcohol is metabolized and leaves your body during the second half of the night you will experience more sleep disruption and a poorer quality of sleep. You may also suffer from REM sleep rebound which results in increased dreaming and possibly nightmares. As a result, you will awaken feeling fatigued and dissatisfied with your sleep.

http://www.SleepMD4U.com – (805) 557-9930 – What’s the difference between central sleep apnea and obstructive sleep apnea?

"Obstructive sleep apnea, or OSA, occurs when there is a physical obstruction of the upper airway caused by a collapse of the airway or obstruction by structures within the airway. This differs from central sleep apnea in that CSA is caused by the brain failing to send out the signals to tell the respiratory system to breathe. This can occur in a variety of neurological disorders or with congestive heart failure. It can also be due to medications that depress the central nervous system, such as sedatives or narcotics.

Restless Leg Syndrome | Restless Limb Syndrome | Malibu, CA (805) 557-9930
 
04:50
http://www.SleepMD4U.com - In this video session, Dr. Popper discusses a disorder known as restless limb syndrome, or more commonly known as restless leg syndrome. This is a disorder that is manifest by an irresistible urge to move, and it can be any part of your body, not just the legs. Most commonly, however, it involves the movement of your feet or ankles. This can be as subtle as the wiggling of your toes, flip flopping or tapping of your feet, or just this general urge to move any part of your body. This is a disorder that occurs primarily when you are at rest such as sitting in a chair, in your car, at your desk, on a plane or a train, or most commonly while you are lying in bed prior to falling asleep. This disorder occurs most often in the early evening hours compared to the daytime hours. It is often but not always associated with some kind of an unpleasant sensation in the extremity. This can range from anything from pain or discomfort, to numbness, tingling, burning, creepy crawly sensation like bugs on the skin, or just this irresistible urge to move or a sensation of restlessness.

How Is Sleep Apnea Diagnosed? - FAQ 3 - Los Angeles - Malibu - Thousand Oaks - Dr. Ronald Popper
 
01:51
http://www.SleepMD4U.com -- This is video number three in a series by Dr. Popper designed to answer questions relating to sleep disorders. If the answer to your question is not in this video, subscribe to our channel to be alerted when a new FAQ video is posted. How is sleep apnea diagnosed? The first step in the diagnosis of sleep apnea is to obtain a thorough history and physical examination with concentration on sleep related symptoms, which can be performed by your primary care physician or a board-certified sleep medicine specialist. Once the suspicion of sleep apnea is made, a sleep study is the next step. There are two types of sleep studies. There is a screening version, known as a home sleep study, which monitors a few parameters pertaining to sleep. And there is the more comprehensive sleep study, known as a polysomnography examination, which is performed in a sleep center. There are advantages and disadvantages to both a home sleep study and an in-sleep-center polysomnographic evaluation.

What Is Aerophagia And What Can I Do? - Malibu - Thousand Oaks - Westlake Village - Dr Ronald Popper
 
01:54
http://www.SleepMD4U.com -- This latest video in Dr. Ronald Popper's FAQ series on sleep disorders discusses the symptoms of Aerophagia, or air swallowing, and some steps that can be taken to relieve this problem. This video series was produced to address general questions about obstructive sleep apnea and other sleep disorders. If you have concerns about a specific condition, feel free to get in touch with Dr. Popper using the contact information below. You may also subscribe to our YouTube channel to be alerted when a new video is posted. What is Aerophagia and what can be done about it? Some patients who use Nasal CPAP complain of abdominal pain, abdominal bloating, an increase in belching or passing gas upon arising in the morning. What is that and what can be done about it? These are symptoms of what we call Air Swallowing or Aerophagia. Measures to combat Aerophagia include assuring that the lowest effective CPAP pressure is utilized. Additionally, elevation of the head of the bed and the use of Mylicon or Gas-X before bed time may alleviate these symptoms. In some patients CPAP has to be discontinued and BiPAP instituted instead. BiPAP allows a lower expiratory pressure relative to the inspiratory pressure and will alleviate these symptoms most of the time.

What Is An Oral Appliance? - Stop Snoring - Los Angeles - Malibu - Thousand Oaks - Dr. Ronald Popper
 
01:57
http://www.SleepMD4U.com - In this installment of his video FAQ series on sleep disorders, Dr. Ronald Popper discusses oral appliances for snoring relief and obstructive sleep apnea. This series has been created to address your questions about sleep apnea and other sleep disorders. If your question has not been answered, subscribe to our YouTube channel to be alerted when a new FAQ video is posted, or get in touch with Dr. Popper using the contact information below. What Is an oral appliance? This is an example of an oral appliance. As you can see, there are two denture-like devices; a lower denture, and an upper denture. On the lower denture is this little wing-like device. And on the upper denture is this screw-like device. This works by advancing the screws against the wing, causing the lower denture to move forward and thus, bringing the tongue away from the back wall of the throat relieving the upper airway obstruction. Oral appliances are approximately 60% to 80% effective at reducing or eliminating snoring, and they are about 50% effective at reducing the obstructive sleep apnea syndrome. They are best used in patients with mild to moderate sleep apnea, or in patients with severe sleep apnea syndrome who refuse to use nasal CPAP or are intolerant to nasal CPAP.

Caring For CPAP Filters - Sleep Apnea Thousand Oaks - Malibu - Westlake Village - Dr. Ronald Popper

http://www.SleepMD4U.com -- How to take care of your CPAP filters is the topic of this latest video in Dr. Ronald Popper's FAQ series on sleep disorders.

Also, please subscribe to our YouTube channel and you will be alerted when a new video is posted here. "How do I care for the filters in my CPAP system? I advise patients to check the filters in their CPAP systems at least once weekly. If you have the white washable filters, as soon as they start to discolor, turn grey, or yellow, or brown, they should be thoroughly cleansed, air dried, and placed back in the filters. If you have a black disposable filter, the frequency with which these need to be changed depends on your home environment. If you have carpeting or pets, you're going to have more dust and danders that are clogging up the filter and you'll have to change them more frequently. If you have wood floors or ceramic floors, and no pets, the filters will last longer. Generally speaking, depending on your home environment, the disposable filters should be changed every two to four weeks. But make sure you check your filters at least weekly.

What Is Provent Therapy? - Snoring Relief - Los Angeles - Malibu - Thousand Oaks - Dr. Ronald Popper
 
02:17
http://www.SleepMD4U.com - Dr. Ronald Popper continues his informative video FAQ series with number eight, in which he discusses Provent Therapy for obstructive sleep apnea and snoring relief. This video series is intended to address your questions about sleep apnea and other sleep disorders. If your question has not been answered, subscribe to our YouTube channel to be alerted when a new FAQ video is posted, or get in touch with Dr. Popper using the contact information below. What Is Provent Therapy? Provent is a relatively new treatment option for the treatment of obstructive sleep apnea syndrome. This is an example of Provent. Provent consists of two valves that are inserted into the nostrils and held in place by a non-allergic adhesive bandage. If one looks closely, you can see a mesh-like valve with a little hole in each side. Provent works by being open during inhalation through the nose so there is no resistance to airflow. When one exhales through the nose, the valves close and you're exhaling through those tiny holes. This creates resistance to airflow. This then causes pressure to back up into the upper airway, much in the same way as positive airway pressure is delivered through the use of nasal CPAP. This pressure splints the airway open. There are several other proposed mechanisms of action for Provent as well. Provent, in my personal experience, has been effective in approximately 60% to 70% of my patients, who show a reduction in their obstructive sleep apnea syndrome by about 50% to 90%.

What Is A Home Sleep Test? - FAQ 6 - Los Angeles - Malibu - Thousand Oaks - Dr. Ronald Popper
 
02:21
http://www.SleepMD4U.com - This is video number six in a series by Dr. Popper designed to address your questions about sleep apnea and other sleep disorders. In this video, the doctor discusses home testing devices for obstructive sleep apnea syndrome and how they work. If your question hasn't been answered in this series, please subscribe to our YouTube channel to be alerted when a new FAQ video is posted, or get in touch with Dr. Popper directly using the contact information below. What is a home sleep test? A home sleep test is a portable device that can be used to diagnose obstructive sleep apnea syndrome in an appropriate patient in the comfort of their own home. This device usually measures four parameters of sleep; respiratory effort, by attaching a belt across the chest and the abdomen to demonstrate efforts to breath; there's usually a cannula-type device that has probes inside the nostrils and above the lip to measure airflow or air pressure; and a pulse oximeter, which is a clip that fits over the fingernail bed and measures both oxygen and heart rate. This device is useful in patients who have a high clinical index of suspicion for having obstructive sleep apnea syndrome and have no co-morbid clinical conditions such as chronic heart or lung disorders or chronic brain disorders. A positive home sleep test confirms the diagnosis of obstructive sleep apnea. However, if a patient who has a high clinical suspicion for obstructive sleep apnea has a negative home sleep test, they should be referred to a sleep center for an in-lab complete polysomnographic evaluation to confirm or refute that diagnosis. I'm Dr. Ronald Popper, medical director of the Southern California Pulmonary and Sleep Disorders Medical Center in Thousand Oaks, California.

Is Home Sleep Test as Accurate as In-Clinic Sleep Study? - Sleep Apnea Thousand Oaks - Malibu

http://www.SleepMD4U.com – (805) 557-9930 – Is a home sleep test just as accurate for diagnosing sleep apnea as an in-clinic sleep study? Dr. Ronald Popper produced this video FAQ series on obstructive sleep apnea and other sleep disorders, as well as chronic severe snoring, to address your general questions about sleep and sleep disorders.

You can also subscribe to our YouTube channel to be alerted when a new video is posted. "In patients with a high pre-test probability of having obstructive sleep apnea and the absence of other medical disorders that can mimic OSA, home sleep tests have been found to reliably diagnose OSA. However, since the equipment is applied by the patient without the benefit of a qualified sleep technician assuring a proper setup, there is a significant possibility that the test results may not be adequate for diagnosis. Tests often must be repeated due to poor signal quality. In addition, most home sleep tests only monitor breathing, oxygen levels and heart rate. There is no monitoring of sleep stages or muscle activity. Hello. I'm Doctor Ronald Popper, thanks for watching.

Recently the FDA approved the use of a device called Relaxis. A pad that is placed under the legs while you lie in bed, Relaxis provides vibrations that change frequency and act as counter stimulation to distract you from the sensations of RLS, much the same as getting up to walk or shake your legs. Studies show the device to be more effective than placebo and has allowed some patients to reduce or stop medication. In severe cases it can be combined with therapy. Relaxis requires a prescription and, unfortunately, at this time it is not covered by insurance plans. Hello. I'm Doctor Ronald Popper, thanks for watching.

Most dentists are not trained in the diagnosis and management of sleep disorders. The American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine, a relatively new organization, is now the official body that certifies when a dentist is qualified to diagnose and treat sleep apnea patients. Nonetheless, all patients with Obstructive Sleep Apnea should be medically evaluated to assure that additional or other sleep disorders are not playing a role in their symptoms. Simply having an oral appliance made by a dentist will deny the patient the opportunity to be adequately evaluated and assure that they are receiving the most effective treatment. Consulting a Board Certified sleep disorders specialist before deciding on a course of treatment is the best bet. Hello, I'm Doctor Ronald Popper. Thank you for watching.

"Most studies have shown that CPAP (Continuous Positive Airway Pressure) and APAP (Auto-Adjusting Positive Airway Pressure) are equally effective in controlling obstructive sleep apnea. However, about half of the patients in my practice who are mandated to have APAP by their insurance companies find that the quality of their sleep is better with CPAP as compared with APAP. The presumed reason is that the constantly changing pressures in APAP cause arousal much in the way that an apnea does, resulting in a disrupted night's sleep. Please refer to our other video which explains the difference between CPAP and APAP. Hello. I'm Doctor Ronald Popper, thanks for watching.

Does Obstructive Sleep Apnea Cause Cancer? - Thousand Oaks - Malibu - Westlake Village - Dr. Popper

http://www.SleepMD4U.com – (805) 557-9930 – Does obstructive sleep apnea cause cancer? Dr. Ronald Popper produced this video FAQ series on obstructive sleep apnea and other sleep disorders, as well as chronic severe snoring, to address your general questions about sleep and sleep disorders.

If you would like to discuss specific details about your condition, feel free to get in touch with Dr. Popper using the contact information below. You can also subscribe to our YouTube channel to be alerted when a new video is posted. Does sleep apnea cause cancer? There is no scientific evidence that sleep apnea causes cancer. A recent article showing an “association” of sleep apnea with a higher mortality from cancer has recently raised controversy. However, when one sifts through all of the data, both supporting and conflicting, there is no clear association of sleep apnea and cancer risk. What is known is that low levels of oxygen associated with sleep apnea, especially severe sleep apnea, has been shown to cause an increase in growth of blood vessels. Low oxygen levels from other causes have also been shown to do this. Therefore, it is thought that severe sleep apnea or severely depressed oxygen levels in association with other cancer risk factors “may” increase the risk of developing cancers.

Surgery for the upper airway can be very effective as can appliances that are placed in the mouth and worn during sleep. Breath Right nasal strips are bandage-like devices worn on the outside of the nose that spread the nostrils and can reduce or eliminate snoring. A new device called Theravent is also a bandage-like device but goes a step further by including small valves that produce positive airway pressure inside the nose and keep the airway open. Hello.

Sleep Apnea Thousand Oaks - Malibu – Perfect 5 Star Review by  Mark H.

http://www.SleepMD4U.com (805) 557-9930 • Southern California Pulmonary and Sleep Disorders Medical Center • Thousand Oaks - Malibu Excellent Rating by Mark H. Before Dr. Popper I attended a different sleep lab for a sleep study with terrible results. The sleep therapist wired me so that the wires fell off or were easily pulled off. The technician also was unable to identify the proper mask. At that point I was depressed that there was no solution to my problem. Dwayne, my sleep specialist at Dr. Popper's office was fantastic.. Dwayne immediately identified the proper mask that allowed me to have a restful sleep. My problem was resolved. Great doctor and sleep lab.

My experience with Dr. Popper's team has been great at every level. The screening appointment was great. Dr. Popper gave me more information and details than any doctor I have been to in years. Answered all my questions and laid out what to expect next. The Sleep Study was very smooth and easy. Duane the sleep tech was great. Dr. Popper was able to help fast track me getting my CPAP and it is truly LIFE CHANGING. I've only had it one night, it was great. Wake up alert, no headache, it's awesome.

Sleep Apnea Thousand Oaks - Malibu – Wonderful 5 Star Review by Susan G.

http://www.SleepMD4U.com (805) 557-9930 • Southern California Pulmonary and Sleep Disorders Medical Center • Thousand Oaks - Malibu Excellent Rating by Susan G. I had a very good experience at Southern California Pulmonary and Sleep Disorders Medical Center. I didn't think I had sleep apnea, but a simple test at home confirmed the diagnosis. Was I ever surprised! After spending a night at the sleep center, where my tech was so caring and accommodating to me, Dr. Popper diagnosed me and turned in all the paperwork so that I could get started on a breathing machine. I sleep much better now and am grateful to Dr. Popper and his cordial staff.

Implantable Device for Obstructive Sleep Apnea - Thousand Oaks - Malibu - Westlake Village
 
01:32
http://www.SleepMD4U.com – (805) 557-9930 – What is the implantable device for treating obstructive sleep apnea? Dr. Ronald Popper produced this video FAQ series on obstructive sleep apnea and other sleep disorders, as well as chronic severe snoring, to address your general questions about sleep and sleep disorders. In this video, Dr. Popper discusses Inspire, an implantable device for treating obstructive sleep apnea. If you would like to discuss specific details about your condition, feel free to get in touch with Dr. Popper using the contact information below. You can also subscribe to our YouTube channel to be alerted when a new video is posted. The “implantable device” for treating obstructive sleep apnea syndrome is called the “Inspire”. This is a pacemaker-like device that is placed under the skin in the upper chest wall. Electrodes are then tunneled through the skin and inserted into the muscles that keep your airway open. Once in place, a low level electrical current stimulates these muscles to help keep your airway open. It is significantly more expensive than CPAP, and is less effective as well. Its primary usefulness is in patients who either refuse to try CPAP, are intolerant to CPAP, or have found other treatments to be ineffective. Hello, I'm Doctor Ronald Popper. Thank you for watching.

http://www.SleepMD4U.com (805) 557-9930 • Southern California Pulmonary and Sleep Disorders Medical Center • Thousand Oaks - Malibu 5 Star Rating by Dino Q. Staff and Doctor are better than 5 stars. Dr Popper knows his stuff. I knew I had a sleep issue, but his knowledge of sleep issues is beyond anything I have heard of. Not only was I sleeping poorly, but my legs seem to be active at night. My issues were physical as well. Large neck, nasal passage too small, and my tongue was too large. And on top of that he got sick for a two week period of time and his staff steeped up and provided great assistance. Rachel was fantastic communicating the results to me. Entire staff great.

http://www.SleepMD4U.com (805) 557-9930 • Southern California Pulmonary and Sleep Disorders Medical Center • Thousand Oaks - Malibu New Rating by James E. I have been a patient for nearly 20 years. I discovered that I had sleep apnea, depression, diabetes Type II, and hypothyroidism all at about the same time. I believe that most of my maladies then were directly related to the sleep apnea and I still believe that to this day. If it wasn't for the thorough, professional, and caring staff of Dr. Poppers Sleep Center I would most likely have passed on. They saved my life and improved my lifestyle. If you snore you need to get checked out ASAP!

Sleep Apnea Thousand Oaks - Malibu – Great 5 Star Review by Peggy C.

http://www.SleepMD4U.com (805) 557-9930 • Southern California Pulmonary and Sleep Disorders Medical Center • Thousand Oaks - Malibu Excellent Review by Peggy C. Years ago my daughter was suffering from debilitating exhaustion, she went through testing for other conditions but nothing was found. She was so weak she almost had to drop out of college. After much research we found that Dr. Popper was the best qualified sleep specialist in the Southland. She was uncomfortable with the sleep study, but she was diagnosed with narcolepsy. The good news is that, with the doctor's help, she is now a wife and mother and has a successful career. We are grateful for his caring and help. I highly recommend this wonderful doctor and his staff.
