Sleep Apnea Treatment
Sleep apnea is a very common health problem that most people associate with loud or frequent snoring. While snoring can be a factor in sleep apnea, an “apnea” is actually an airway blockage that occurs while you sleep. When the brain registers that it isn’t receiving enough oxygen, the individual is woken up and gasps for breath. Severe sleep apnea sufferers can have hundreds of these apneas each night. Untreated sleep apnea can even increase your risk for:
- Heart failure
- High blood pressure
