Nastent as an Option
Existing Treatment and Nastent
Currently, the nasal Continuous Positive Airway Pressure method (nCPAP) is the first choice for treatment of sleep apnea syndrome. While nCPAP is extremely effective, complaints are heard from patients such as “mask is bothersome,” “machine operation is noisy,” “equipment is too large,” “constant supply is necessary.” As a result, about half of the patients discontinue treatment within a year.
Nastent prevents obstruction of the airway with a different concept from nCPAP. Nastent is highly recommended for those who gave up treatment with nCPAP.
You can also use Nastent on particular days, for example, during a business trip or travel.
