Sleep Apnea & Snoring

Considered a serious Sleep Disorder that occurs when a person's breathing is interrupted during Sleep - often the result of a restricted airway. The risks of undiagnosed OSA include heart attack, stroke, irregular heartbeat, high blood pressure, heart disease and decreased libido. In addition, OSA causes daytime drowsiness that can result in accidents, lost productivity and relationship problems.
The National Sleep Foundation estimates that 18 million adults have obstructive sleep apnea and it is likely that OSA also affects 2% to 3% of children. Yet, people who have OSA may not be aware they have a problem. If someone close to you has spoken of your loud snoring and has noticed that you often wake up abruptly, gasping for air, you should consider a consult.
People with untreated Sleep Apnea stop breathing repeatedly during their sleep, sometimes hundreds of times each night. This means the Brain -- and the rest of the body -- may not get enough oxygen.
