Medical science has made some amazing breakthroughs and even though our insurance companies don’t want to pay for us to use any of them it’s still good to know our prospects for good health continue to grow. Sleep apnea, familiar with it? If you live with someone who snores I bet you are.

One of the main causes of obstructive sleep apnea is that the tongue and throat muscles relax too much during sleep, enough to temporarily collapse and block breathing for 30 seconds or so at a time. The person jerks awake and gasps, a cycle that can repeat itself 30 or more times an hour, depriving patients of crucial deep sleep.

Could this be the end of that mask and the machine that so many sleep apnea patients are using? Could this be the answer to YOU getting a good nights sleep. Well give a click below and stop yawning.
