In some clinical situations, pharmacological treatment (sleep inducers, antidepressants, anxiolytics…) can be of great help in short periods of time. Occasionally, pharmacological treatment is necessary. In any case, the decision of whether or not to use drugs, the type and doses will always be prescribed by the physician on a case-by-case basis.

CPAP (Continuous Positive Airway Pressure)

Treatment of choice for severe OSAHS, although it can also be used in mild cases and roncopathy. It is a compressor that by means of continuous positive air pressure keeps the airway open, eliminating apneas/hypopneas and snoring. The patient sleeps with a nasal mask on throughout the night.

DAM (Mandibular Advancement Device)

It is a good treatment option in mild SAHS and snoring without apneas. The device consists of 2 intraoral splints that the patient uses only for sleeping, eliminating apneas/hypopneas and snoring by means of mandibular advancement.

Psychological and pedagogical support

Most of the causes of poor sleep are due to events that occur during the day. In our day-to-day life we accumulate work-related, emotional and social stressors, including health. If we do not resolve these daytime stresses, good rest will be impossible. These situations are not solved with drugs. Therefore, with the help of our professionals in Psychology and Pedagogy, and usually in a single session, behavioral guidance tools are given to channel the solution of these daytime stressors.
