What is sleep apnea?
Sleep apnea is a sleep condition whereby the sufferer wakes occasionally throughout the night due to cessation of breath. It is caused by a collapse of airways leading to the lungs, depriving the sufferer of oxygen. Sleep apnea is typically accompanied by excessive snoring.
When sleep apnea is left untreated, the sufferer may be at a higher risk for a myriad of other total-body health problems. Untreated sleep apnea sufferers may also experience high blood pressure, increased risk for heart attack and stroke, decreased organ function, increased risk associated with diabetes, and more. To prevent major consequences associated with sleep apnea, please seek help as soon as symptoms are discovered.
