Sleep Apnea Treatment
We’re all familiar with someone who snores. It can be loud, disruptive, and make sleeping difficult. However, snoring may be more than a mere annoyance. It can indicate a serious condition called “sleep apnea,” a nocturnal breathing disorder with negative health consequences.
The symptoms of sleep apnea include:
- Loud, chronic snoring
- Daytime sleepiness
- Morning headaches
- Choking or gasping between breaths during sleep
- Memory and concentration difficulties
- Dry mouth and/or sore throat upon awakening
If you know of someone who snores heavily, it might indicate a more real problem. Sleep apnea can pose serious health consequences, and can only be diagnosed with proper supervision while the patient sleeps.
