Treating Sleep Apnea At Home

Timothy Grant, Medical Director of Baptist Sleep Center at Baptist Outpatient Services, says there are a hundred different masks to help you sleep and he advises using which one is comfortable for you. "It delivers air, it's not oxygen, it's just air because air has oxygen. So, when the air comes in it's actually keeping the back of your throat open and it's allowing you to breathe normally and then your brain doesn't keep waking you up at night," he explains. He points out that with new innovations, these machines are light and they do not make noises.
