If you have trouble sleeping at night, you’re not alone. Approximately 60 million Americans are diagnosed with sleep disorders – including Sleep Apnea, the number one cause of sleep disorders.
What is Sleep Apnea?
Sleep Apnea is a sleep disorder characterized by constricted airflow, which can result in brief periods of little or no breathing. Sleep apnea can become a serious condition, even life threatening if left untreated.
Some of the warning signs of sleep apnea include:
• Snoring loud enough to disturb the sleep of others or yourself
• Shortness of breath that awakens you from sleep
• Intermittent pauses in your breathing during sleep
• Excessive daytime drowsiness that causes you to fall asleep while working, watching television, or even driving
