Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA)
OSA is the most common category of sleep-disordered breathing affecting at least 18 million Americans. OSA occurs when a person stops breathing continually during restorative sleep. Breathing is stalled because of the airway collapses and prevents air from getting to the lungs. The pauses in breathing causes decrease in oxygen levels and awakenings to clear the throat. Disrupted sleep can results in sleepiness and fatigue during the day, as well as increase your likelihood of a stroke or heart attack.
OSA is completely treatable and reversible.
