Sleep Apnea

Major signs and symptoms of sleep apnea are:

  • Loud and chronic snoring
  • Choking, snorting, or gasping during sleep
  • Long pauses in breathing
  • Daytime sleepiness, no matter how much time you spend in bed

Sleep apnea affects the way you breathe when you're sleeping. In untreated sleep apnea, breathing is briefly interrupted or becomes very shallow. These breathing pauses typically last between 10 to 20 seconds and can occur hundreds of times a night.

Untreated sleep apnea prevents you from getting a good night's sleep.

When breathing is resumed after a period of apnea, you are jolted out of your natural sleep rhythm. As a consequence, you spend more time in light sleep and less time in the deep, restorative sleep you need to be energetic, mentally sharp, and productive the next day.

This chronic sleep deprivation results in:

  • Daytime sleepiness
  • Poor concentration
  • Increased risk of accidents
  • Slow reflexes
  • Heart Disease
  • High blood pressure
  • Stroke
  • Weight Gain

With treatment, you can control the symptoms, get your sleep back on track, and
start feeling refreshed and alert every day.
