Sleep Apnea Explained
Sleep apnea is a sleep disorder wherein a person’s breathing is briefly interrupted, repeatedly throughout the night, as often as 30 times an hour or more. Some common symptoms and side effects of sleep apnea include:
- Chronic snoring
- Difficulty concentrating
- Learning and memory difficulties
- Drowsiness or falling asleep while driving, at work, or on the phone
Sleep apnea is one of the most potentially dangerous sleep disorders because it affects the amount of oxygen you take in. And it is also one of the most common:
- More than 18 million Americans affected according to the National Sleep Foundation
- Can affect people regardless of age, gender, or background
