Symptoms of Obstructive Sleep Apnea

Has your bed partner told you that your snore? Do you awaken gasping for air in the middle of the night? Think you sleep well, but are still feel tired throughout the day?

Loud snoring, repeated gasping during sleep, daytime sleepiness, and fatigue may be symptoms of sleep apnea.

Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is a sleep disorder that occurs when your throat muscles relax and collapse during exhalation. As a result, your airway becomes obstructed– blocking normal inhalation. When this happens, your brain signals your body to wake up.

These involuntary ‘apnea events’ cause you to stop breathing many times every hour. Therefore, you are robbed of restful sleep. In addition, your blood oxygen level is significantly lowered.

Obstructive Sleep Apnea can lead to serious problems like excessive daytime sleepiness and fatigue, impaired cognitive function, heart disease, high blood pressure, stroke, and diabetes.
