GIANNASI, Lílian C et al. Use of PM-Positioner oral appliance in the treatment of snoring and mild obstructive sleep apnea. Odontoestomatología [online]. 2010, vol.12, n.15, pp.39-45. ISSN 1688-9339.

The choice of an adequate oral appliance is very important in the treatment of obstructive sleep apnea. The present study evaluated the effect of PMPositioner for the treatment of snoring and mild obstructive sleep apnea through polysomnography and Epworth Sleep Scale prior to treatment and after six months. Seventeen patients, divided into 2 groups, snoring (n=7) and 10 with mild obstructive sleep apnea were enrolled. The results were significant for obstructive sleep apnea group reveling a decrease in the apnea/hypopnea index from 7.4.plusmn;5.0 to 3.0.plusmn;2.5 (p<0.05), an increase in oxigen saturation from 88.0.plusmn;6.0 to 90.0.plusmn;2.8 (p<0.05), an increase in REM sleep from 16.0.plusmn;6.0 to 19.plusmn;4.0 and a sleepiness improved in from 12.5.plusmn;5.4 to 7.4.plusmn;2.4. Furthermore, it was noticed an improvement in snoring and subjective symptoms according to reports from the patients and their partners. We conclude that the PM Positioner is efficient in the treatment of snoring and mild obstructive sleep apnea and in reduction of sleepiness and others symptoms
