Do you or your loved one snore? Do you frequently during the night and find yourself short of breath? Do you feel sluggish, or tired even after you’ve gotten a full night’s rest? If you answered yes to these questions, you or your partner may be suffering from sleep apnea.

What is Obstructive Sleep Apnea?

Obstructive sleep apnea is a common sleep disorder that affects your breathing while you are asleep. Patients with obstructive sleep apnea can wake up hundreds of times during the night without realizing it, and fail to enter the deep sleep state necessary to achieve a full night’s rest. While a patient with sleep apnea is asleep, the muscles in their throat relax too much and the airway that provides oxygen collapses. When the brain doesn’t receive the oxygen that it needs, it responds by waking up the patient just enough to re-open the airway. After the patient is able to breathe normally again, they fall back into a deeper state of sleep, the throat relaxes, and the endless cycle begins again.
