Positional Obstructive Sleep Apnea (POSA)

 

Sleep apnea is a pause in breathing caused by the upper airway collapsing and blocking the air flow. If your breathing disruptions most commonly occur when sleeping on your back, then it is known as POSA. POSA can be identified during a sleep study, and treatment would encourage alternative sleeping positions to help lessen breathing disruptions caused by sleeping on your back.

During nights 3-9, vibrations are gradually introduced over time to allow you to acclimate to the new POSA therapy.
On day 10 and forward, full treatment is delivered when therapy is needed – reducing the time spent sleeping on your back.(5)
