Treatment of Sleep Apnea Induced ED
So, even though more research on this topic is needed, an obvious correlation between OSA and ED indicates that treating obstructive sleep apnea may also help treat erectile dysfunction. Sleep apnea treatments actually can often be used as proof that erectile dysfunction is in direct relation to it.
Treating OSA-induced ED effectively actually means treating OSA itself. And the most efficient treatment for OSA is CPAP therapy.
The CPAP therapy was popularized 40-50 years ago and since then has been on the rise as the most effective solution for the sleep apnea condition. The therapy is medically prescribed and requires the use of a CPAP machine and equipment which pushes the pressurized air into the patient's airways and with that keeps them open all the time, thus preventing sleep apnea.
A CPAP machine is a mechanical device that sends air pressure through a mask while a person is asleep. This air pressure is greater than that of the air around, which helps keep upper airway passages open to stop apnea and snoring. Because CPAP is a medical device, all CPAP units must have Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval before they can be sold and can be bought only with a medical prescription. This goes in line with diagnosing sleep apnea and in this case diagnosing sleep apnea-induced erectile dysfunctions.
Deciding to consult a physician about an ED issue is often the key step, as it is a step that many men are not comfortable with. But from there on, the process of resolving the issue has already started!
