Dr. Avi Weisfogel’s Battle Against Sleep Apnea

There are new medical breakthroughs each and every day. The dawn of technology has helped to advance science and medicine to an almost unthinkable degree.

Dr. Avi Weisfogel is one example of a doctor using new technology to test the boundaries of current dentistry practices, particularly in the field of sleep studies and the condition known as sleep apnea.

Sleep apnea is a very common condition among adults and children, with most cases going undiagnosed. Someone suffering from sleep apnea is not getting a full night’s rest, and the condition could be deadly in some cases.

Sleep apnea occurs when a person stops breathing for a period of time while they are sleeping. The person may pause breathing for a few seconds up to a few minutes, and these pauses in breathing occur several times throughout the night, making it impossible for sufferers to get deep REM sleep.

While anyone may be diagnosed with sleep apnea, primarily overweight people and men suffer from the condition.

Dr. Weisfogel is a dentist and a sleep apnea expert, drawing on 20 years of experience in the field. A modern-day polymath, Dr. Weisfogel understands that there are no limits to human ingenuity and has created an organization called Healthy Heart Sleep dedicated to sleep treatment.

Healthy Heart Sleep comprises a wide network of sleep professionals and dentists, allowing them to join together through this network to share their medical research and treatment practices with one another in real-time, providing a forum for dialogue and ingenuity to occur.

Instead of treating patients with the same methods as before, Dr. Weisfogel looks to improve the lives of his patients through ongoing research and constantly trying new method to better diagnose sleep apnea as well as treat the condition.

Dr. Weisfogel’s current practice is Dental Sleep Masters, an organization which offers improved healthcare options and services to people with sleep issues.

Dr. Weisfogel continues to innovate and find new diagnosis and treatment options for sleep apnea sufferers.
