Snoring & Sleep Apnea
Snoring, a very prevalent breathing disorder, is often associated with Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA), which affects millions and is associated with higher risk of Stroke and Heart Attack. OSA occurs when breathing stops for ten seconds or more during sleep or is reduced such that blood oxygen saturation drops, placing significant strain on your heart and cardiovascular system. This prevents air from reaching your lungs and deprives your body of oxygen. One of the most undiagnosed disorders known to mankind, OSA is easily treated once a diagnosis is established.
