Avi Weisfogel Conquers Sleep Apnea

Although many consider America to the greatest country on the planet, many who live in this country face a lot of stress. There are many ways to combat this stress and relieve it, and many busy professionals elect to take a vacation in order to take a breather. Unfortunately, if you have the medical condition of sleep apnea it doesn’t matter how many vacations you take this condition goes with you. Although many individuals combat their sleep apnea with a CPAP (continuous positive air pressure) machine, travel causes a dilemma because of the logistics of handling the machine. The question remains for many: do I take this big, heavy and bulky machine with me on a trip or just try to struggle to sleep without it? Fortunately, there are solutions.

Travel CPAP Machine

One of the first alternatives that travelers can utilize would be a traveling version of the CPAP machine. This is a smaller, more compact version of the tradition CPAP and allows the user to sleep soundly by keeping the airways open. They are smaller than a traditional machine because it lacks a humidifier. Moreover, many portable CPAP machines on the market today are even able to record sleep data. Users should consult their respiratory therapist to determine the best portable CPAP machine for their needs.

Oral Appliance

Some sleep apnea sufferers might prefer utilizing an oral appliance because it eliminates the need for any wires, masks or other bothersome machinery. An oral appliance is worn in the mouth during sleep and fits much like an athletic mouth guard. In order to get an oral appliance, the patient must get a prescription from his or her physician and then must visit a dentist qualified in the procedure. Be careful about obtaining this piece of equipment, because insurance may not cover the cost of it if you already own a CPAP machine.

Nasal Valve Therapy

When most people see the word, “therapy”, they immediately think of a verb. Well, in this case a “therapy” is known as a noun. This is a nasal device type of machine that fits over the nostrils and is secured with hypoallergenic tape. The valve opens and closes as the user sleeps and keep pressure on the throat, keeping all airways open.

With the 2016 season around the corner, expectations are high for the Notre Dame Men’s Lacrosse Team. The Irish went 4-0 for the regular season and finished 9-2 overall. Their success is due in no small part by a stingy defense led by senior Matt Landis.

There are two games in particular that showed the emergence of Landis and the Notre Dame defense. First during March was an 11-9 victory over then seventh-ranked Virgina. The Fighting Irish held Virginia scoreless for the first 22 minutes and just nine goals, their lowest of the season. As a result, Landis was recognized as the Atlantic Coast Conference Men’s Lacrosse Defensive player of the week.

While Notre Dames defense has been consistent all season, their early May 14-10 victory against Albany was especially worth noting. This was the last collegiate game for Albany attackman, Lyle Thompson. The Fighting Irish defense led by Landis held the Great Danes player to shooting only 1-for-11, far below his average. For his effort, Matt Landis was recognized a second time as the ACC Men’s Lacrosse Defensive Player of the Week. He was also recognized as the Epoch and Lacrosse Magazine Player of the Week, the first defensive player to earn the title this year.

So impressive was his play that Landis was voted by league coaches as the Atlantic Coast Conference 2015 Defensive Player of the Year. He also a nominee for the 2015 Tewaaraton Award.
