SLEEP APNEA

Sleep Apnea is a sleep disorder in which breathing is briefly and repeatedly interrupted during sleep. The two most common types of sleep apnea are: Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) and Central Sleep Apnea. Obstructive occurs when the throat muscles do not relax and Central occurs when your brain is not sending the proper signals to the muscles that help you breathe. In most cases, people who suffer from sleep apnea are usually unaware of the pauses in breathing while you sleep.

Symptoms:

  • Loud and Frequent Snoring

  • Daytime Sleepiness or Fatigue

  • Weight Gain or Weight Loss

  • Witnessed Apnea (Pauses in Breathing)

  • Insomnia
