NEW YORK, NY, February 01, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- According to the American Academy of Otolaryngology - Head and Neck Surgery, forty five percent of normal adults snore at least occasionally, while 25 percent are habitual snorers. Problem snoring typically occurs more frequently in males and overweight people, worsening with age. If patients snore, this nasal problem in Manhattan may be an indication of obstructed breathing and should not be ignored.
Dr. Richard Nass, Manhattan ear, nose and throat doctor, is available to help patients determine where the anatomic source of a patient's snoring may be, and offer solutions for this noisy and often embarrassing behavior. Patients are encouraged to take the next step to a better night's sleep by visiting Dr. Nass for proper diagnosis and treatment planning. However, Dr. Nass, ENT in Manhattan, urges his patients to understand that snoring is not always sleep apnea.
"If you snore, and your snoring is interrupted by frequent episodes of complete obstructed breathing, you may be suffering from sleep apnea. Serious episodes can last more than ten seconds each and occur more than seven times per hour. With proper consultation, I can help diagnosis and develop a proper treatment plan for the individual patient so you can sleep easy once again," said Dr. Richard Nass, Manhattan ENT.
Complete assessment of the degree of disease and site of obstruction allows for precise, "patient-specific" recommendations for treatment. These treatments range from traditional C-PAP assistance, and dental appliances to behavior modification and surgeries, which range from in-office to in-hospital procedures based on the specifics found in the individual patient.
Dr. Richard Nass, a doctor of the ear, nose and throat in Manhattan, urges his patients to visit his office if they suffer from snoring, and have other symptoms of sleep apnea. By seeking treatment immediately, Dr. Nass can provide a patient-tailored treatment plan that allows for the best treatment options for sleep apnea.
