Sleep Apnea 101
Sleep apnea is a sleep disorder caused by the collapse of the airways at night. This collapse causes the sufferer to stop breathing, typically wakening them at various times throughout the night. This cessation of breath is typically accompanied by severe snoring and other symptoms. If you are experiencing any of the following situations, you may be suffering from sleep apnea:
- Loud snoring
- Cessation of breath during sleep
- Daytime fatigue
- Morning headaches
- Trouble concentrating
Avoiding Full-Body Health Concerns
Please seek treatment if you are suffering from any of the symptoms of sleep apnea. Allowing sleep apnea to go untreated can result in an increased risk for a number of total-body health concerns. Untreated sleep apnea can lead to high blood pressure, increased risk for heart attack or stroke, diabetic complications, and more. Severe untreated sleep apnea can even lead to death.
