What is Obstructive Sleep Apnea?

Obstructive sleep apnea is a serious sleep disorder that happens when a person’s breathing starts and stops, perhaps hundreds of times, while sleeping. If left untreated it can be dangerous to your health, even fatal.

Effects of Obstructive Sleep Apnea

Obstructive sleep apnea can increase the risk of health problems, including:

  • High blood pressure
  • Stroke
  • Heart failure, irregular heart beats, and heart attacks
  • Diabetes
  • Depression
  • Worsening of ADHD
  • Headaches
  • Decreased sex drive

Untreated obstructive sleep apnea can also be responsible for poor performance in everyday activities such work and school and motor vehicle accidents.

Find Out if You Have Obstructive Sleep Apnea

Sleep apnea can affect people of all ages, including babies and children. More than 25% of adults worldwide suffer from obstructive sleep apnea.

If you snore loudly or suffer from excessive daytime sleepiness, you may have obstructive sleep apnea.
