Sleep Apnea is considered one the of the most serious sleep disorders. LEARN MORE
There are two types of sleep apnea, obstructive which is more common and caused by blockage in the airway, and central which is caused by the brain failing to signal the muscles to breath. Sleep Apnea can occur in anyone including children.
There are some factors that put you at a higher risk including being male, overweight, or over 40 years old.
A person who is affected by sleep apnea will stop breathing while they are sleeping, sometimes up to 100 times during the night.
This can lead to serious side effects such as heart attack and diabetes because the brain and body do not get enough oxygen.
