Diagnose & Treat Sleep Apnea
Sleep Apnea (OSA) is a condition in which there are brief periods during sleep in which your airway relaxes and you do not get enough air to your lungs. Sleep Apnea is a serious, potentially life-threatening condition and is far more common than generally understood.
Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) is caused by a collapse of soft tissue in the rear of the throat creating a temporary blockage in the airway. The result is that the individual can stop breathing for anywhere from 10 seconds to 3 minutes, with events recurring up to 100 times an hour in the most severe cases.
Symptoms of Sleep Apnea include excessive daytime sleepiness, morning headaches, high blood pressure, memory problems, depression, heartburn, impotence, night time urination, difficulty concentrating, irritability and personality changes.
