What is obstructive sleep apnea (OSA)?
Obstructive sleep apnea is a common and serious sleep disorder that causes interruptions in breathing during sleep. This happens when the airway becomes blocked, limiting the amount of air that reaches the lungs.
How do I know if I have sleep apnea?
Common symptoms include loud snoring, choking noises during sleep, feeling fatigued during the day, difficulty concentrating, and waking up frequently during the night. If you experience these symptoms, it's essential to consult a healthcare professional.
What are the health risks associated with untreated sleep apnea?
Untreated sleep apnea can lead to various health issues, including high blood pressure, heart disease, stroke, diabetes, depression, and more.
