Sleep Apnea

Snoring? Spouse can’t sleep next to you? Falling asleep in the afternoon?

Drinking a third cup of coffee? Fatigue and sleepiness have many causes, but for some, no matter how much you sleep, you always need more – and this can often be a sign of sleep apnea.

Sleep apnea is a temporary blockage of the airway, which results in the brain not getting adequate oxygen. This in turn wakes the sleeping brain, to reopen the airway. The trouble is, this can occur up to 30 or more times per hour, in some cases. Which is like having someone poke you awake, every 2 minutes. All night. Not a good way to recharge while sleeping!

ONE in FIVE Americans report that they get less than 6 hours of sleep per night. Sleep is an essential part of our lives, unfortunately, we increasingly live in a 24/7 society.
