Sleep apnea is a potentially severe sleep disorder in which breathing repetitively quits and starts. This can stop your body from getting adequate oxygen. You may intend to talk with your doctor about sleep apnea if somebody informs you that you gasp or snore during sleep, or if you experience other symptoms of poor-quality sleep, such as too much daytime sleepiness. There are two types of sleep apnea. To diagnose sleep apnea, your provider might have you do a sleep study. Breathing devices such as continual positive atmospheric pressure machines and way of life changes are common sleep apnea therapies. If these treatments do not work, surgical treatment may be advised to fix the problem that is creating your sleep apnea. You might not get sufficient good top quality sleep if your sleep apnea is not detected or dealt with. This can lead to difficulty focusing, making decisions, remembering things, or regulating your actions. Sleep apnea is also linked to significant health issue.
