Sleep apnea is a serious sleep disorder that affects many of our patients. Sleep apnea is typically defined as the reduction of airflow while sleeping. Signs of sleep apnea include loud and/or frequent snoring, gasps for breath, and long pauses in an otherwise typical breathing pattern while sleeping.
Untreated sleep apnea has been linked to many serious health disorders, including:
- High blood pressure
- Heart failure
