What You Should Know About Sleep Disorders
An estimated 20 million Americans suffer from a sleep disorder known as Sleep Apnea. Sleep Apnea is a condition in which a person stops breathing repeatedly during sleep. The result is that the body does not get enough oxygen. The most common sign is nightly snoring, interrupted by pauses in breathing.
Sleep Apnea can cause the following:
Increased risk of heart problems
Increased risk of stroke
Increased risk of high blood pressure
Motor vehicle accidents or accidents at work
Evaluation by a Sleep Specialist is recommended for the diagnosis and treatment of Sleep Apnea.
Less daytime drowsiness and fatigue
Improved memory and concentration
Better work performance
Less health risks
Less risk of motor vehicle and work-related accidents
