Dr. Avi Weisfogel Brings to Light that Sleep Apnea is Completely Treatable: When the Correct Institutional Provider Notices its Symptoms in the Patient He Generally Treats:

Dr. Avi Weisfogel is one entrepreneur on a mission: He wishes to place his Dental Sleep Masters’ program into the hands of as many Dentists and Physicians, as possible, in order to provide important details about a very serious sleep disorder. He further wishes to bring to the attention of the general public the critical condition of Sleep Apnea.The condition of Sleep Apnea, according to the personable Dr. Avi Weisfogel is a condition that goes highly undiagnosed. The problem is that the symptoms, associated with the sleep malfunction, are pertinent to other possible health concerns.However, once the professional is properly educated about the enormity of the problem and knows how to identify the sleep disorder, with respect to the patients he sees each day, or in that of new patients; he is in the position of recommending proper treatment options–relative to the severity of the apnea.

According to Dr. Avi Weisfogel:

Apneas generally happen during periods of sleep. When the apnea occurs, sleep is disrupted due to insufficient breathing or a lack of oxygen, occurring in the blood steam. The person, experiencing the apnea, may completely awaken. Other times, the patient comes out of a very deep level of sleep into that of a shallow sleep level.Dr. Weisfogel, further emphasized the fact that apenas are generally measured during sleep. It is preferable to measure the apnea during all stages of sleep; and over a two-hour time-period.

The critical aspect of the Apnea is measured by dividing the number of apneas, by the sleep hours. In so doing, the sleeper, as well as the participating professional, each acquire an apnea index: AI is relative to apneas per hour. The rule applied is that the greater the apnea index–the greater is the severity of the apnea. Naturally, the measurement of apneas is one way in determining the severity of the apnea.Since there are three different types of apneas, and each patient is different, the person, wishing to make the true determination, as to the critical aspect of the apnea, consults with the healthcare institutional specialist. The Dental practitioner or Physician, in making use of a program, such as the Dental Sleep Masters’ program, according to the knowledgeable sleep specialist, Dr. Avi Weisfogel, can make all of the difference in the world.
