Do You Have Sleep Apnea?
Are you plagued with sleep apnea and snoring issues?
Your search for treatment has come to an end!
Lack of sleep can be a factor in several serious health issues. Sleep Apnea is clinically known as Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA), and can be mild, moderate, or severe.
Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA)
Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is caused by a blockage in your airway that can disrupt your breathing while you sleep. This disruption in breathing can take place up to hundreds of times over the course of a night. You may not be aware this is happening, but it can have serious consequences.
- Are you tired during the day, even though you felt that you slept all night?
- Do you engage in loud irregular snoring?
- Other signs and symptoms include:
- Morning headaches
- Impaired concentration
- Short-term memory loss
- Reduced sex drive
- A decrease in attentiveness and motivation
OSA is a serious medical condition, and must be diagnosed professionally. Chronic severe obstructive sleep apnea requires treatment to prevent low blood oxygen (hypoxemia), sleep deprivation, and other complications.
The diagnosis of sleep apnea is based on the results of a formal sleep study called Polysomnogram (PSP). The test aims at establishing an objective diagnosis which is linked to the number of apneic events per hour of sleep. The results of the test will help determine the sleep apnea severity and the proper treatment.
