Hello,
Thank you for trusting HCM

Th best treatment for sleep apnea is the use of CPAP(Continuous Positive Airway Pressure) machine while sleeping. The CPAP machine will keep the airway open using positive pressure.
Please be advised to follow up with your pulmonologist to undergo sleep study.

Hope this answers your question
