What is obstructive sleep apnea?
What are the signs & symptoms of sleep apnea?
Loud, excessive snoring is one of the telltale signs of obstructive sleep apnea. Other signs and symptoms of sleep apnea include:
- Daytime fatigue
- Difficulty concentrating
- Dry mouth or sore throat
- High blood pressure
- Decreased libido
- Morning headaches
Because OSA causes intermittent lapses in breathing, it’s also not uncommon for individuals to awaken abruptly in the middle of the night, choking and gasping for air.
What are the risk factors associated with sleep apnea?
● High blood pressure
● Chronic nasal congestion
Additionally, people with family histories of sleep apnea are more likely to develop it.
What are the complications of sleep apnea?
Obstructive sleep apnea lowers oxygen levels throughout the body, which can lead to heart disease, stroke, or high blood pressure due to excessive pressure on the cardiovascular system.
Daytime fatigue and sleepiness puts individuals at a higher risk of getting into accidents. Sleep apnea also results in poorer job performance. Excessive snoring caused by sleep apnea can even interfere with a partner’s sleep and lead to relationship problems.
