Hello and hope you are doing well.

If there are any structural defects like adenoids (adenoids) or tonsils, surgical correction can be done to improve air flow. CPAP (Continuous Positive Airway Pressure) is the therapy for obstructive sleep apnea as it helps to keep the airways patent. Alternatively, you could try BiPAP, which is a bi level pressure device, which regulates according to inspiration and expiration, and hence is more comfortable.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
