In some cases, the solution is as easy as minor behavior modifications, such as quitting smoking, avoiding alcohol, and reducing the use of sedatives. These lifestyle changes can open airways and relax the tissues in your throat. Depending on the severity of your situation, CPAP machines may also be provided. These devices help open airways for patients with obstructive sleep apnea. Oral appliances are a less-invasive method of opening airways, and they are effective with many patients. Other patients may require surgical intervention to treat more complicated airway or breath-related issues.
