Some treatments involve lifestyle changes, such as avoiding alcohol or muscle relaxants, losing weight, and quitting smoking. Many people benefit from sleeping at a 30-degree elevation of the upper body or higher, as if in a recliner. Doing so helps prevent the gravitational collapse of the airway. Lateral positions (sleeping on a side), as opposed to supine positions (sleeping on the back), are also recommended as a treatment for sleep apnea, largely because the gravitational component is smaller in the lateral position. Some people benefit from various kinds of oral appliances such as the Mandibular advancement splint to keep the airway open during sleep. Continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) is the most effective treatment for severe obstructive sleep apnea, but oral appliances are considered a first-line approach equal to CPAP for mild to moderate sleep apnea, according to the AASM parameters of care. There are also surgical procedures to remove and tighten tissue and widen the airway.

Treatment may include lifestyle changes, mouthpieces, breathing devices, and surgery. [1] Lifestyle changes may include avoiding alcohol , losing weight, stopping smoking, and sleeping on one's side. [8] Breathing devices include the use of a CPAP machine . [8] Without treatment, sleep apnea may increase the risk of heart attack , stroke , diabetes , heart failure , irregular heartbeat , obesity , and motor vehicle collisions . [1]
