What Is Sleep Apnea?

Last updated 5 years ago

Sufficient sleep is an important element of a healthy lifestyle. Sleep apnea can keep you and your partner from getting a good night’s rest and may cause future health problems if left untreated.

Sleep apnea occurs when there is an obstruction to the airway that prevents sufficient oxygen from reaching the organs and brain. This disorder can often go unnoticed because it is difficult to self-diagnose. Snoring, constant fatigue, irritability, and daytime sleepiness are not only detrimental to quality of life but can also be indicative of obstructive sleep apnea. Watch this video to learn more about how to recognize and treat sleep apnea.
