If you’re living with sleep apnea, the effects of this dangerous condition often cause noticeable problems with your sleep and day-to-day life: loud snoring, chronic fatigue, loss of concentration, memory problems, and even systemic health complications like diabetes, high blood pressure, and cardiovascular problems
Sleep apnea is characterized by repeated cessations in breathing during sleep that can range from mild (5-15 events per hour) to severe (over 30 events per hour). Sleep apnea is commonly caused by the tongue and soft tissues blocking the upper airway and halting air flow to the lungs. As oxygen levels decrease, the brain responds by partially waking the sleeper to resume airflow, which usually occurs with a loud gasp. These events can have serious and life-threatening consequences. If you’ve been living with untreated sleep apnea symptoms such as loud snoring, it’s time to change your tune.
