About Sleep Apnea
Known as the “not-so-silent killer” due to its association with loud snoring, obstructive sleep apnea occurs when the muscles in the throat relax and close during sleep, which disrupts breathing. As a result, the body subconsciously wakes itself in an attempt to return breathing to normal, which can happen hundreds of times each night. Left untreated, the sleep disorder can lead to a wide range of health complications, including increased risk of heart attack, high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, liver problems, and accidents due to drowsiness or lack of concentration.
