What Is Sleep Apnea?

Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is a condition characterized by the cessation of breathing multiple times throughout the night. Due to obstruction of the airway leading to a decreased flow of oxygen. Symptoms of OSA include loud, chronic snoring, excessive daytime fatigue, morning headaches, high blood pressure, and mood changes just to name a few. Studies show that chronic untreated OSA can increase a person’s risk for a heart attack or stroke. Because the body does the most repair  and rejuvenation in the deepest levels of sleep, constantly being awakened throughout the night can have a drastic impact on overall health and is tethered to many unwanted health complications.
