Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) is a disorder characterized by repetitive upper airway obstruction resulting in nocturnal hypoxia and sleep fragmentation due to result of an obstruction of the upper airways during sleep caused by narrow and inadequate motor tone of the tongue and airway dilator muscles. There is limited evidence to suggest that efficacy of the noninvasive approach of physical therapy in such subjects. Hence the present study was designed to evaluate the effect of the approach on OSA. This clinical trial was conducted in 60 subjects diagnosed with obstructive sleep apnea both males and females in the age group of 20-60 years. Both the group of subjects performed intervention in the form of oropharyngeal exercises and ujjayi pranayam. Pre and post intervention outcome measurements were taken at the baseline and at the end of 6 weeks using Berlin questionnaire. Statistical analysis of the outcome at baseline and at the end of 6 weeks showed statistical significant difference in snoring (p=0.0001) from which it can be concluded that noninvasive therapeutic approach in the form of ujjayie pranayam have shown to be more effective in improving snoring in patients with OSA.
