What is Sleep Apnea?

Chronic snoring problems and interrupted sleep aren’t just an inconvenience. Sleep apnea is a common but serious sleep disorder that causes interruptions in breathing during sleep.

These pauses in breathing are called apneas and they can happen hundreds of times each night. Sleep apnea can have a negative impact on your health and prevent you from getting the restful night’s sleep your body needs.

Continuously interrupted sleep can result in serious health-related problems. Potential health issues that may result from untreated sleep apnea include:

  • Heart attack
  • Sudden death
  • Stroke
  • High blood pressure
  • Diabetes
  • Obesity
  • ADHD
  • Dementia
  • Depression
  • Inability to concentrate
  • Impaired memory
