Basic things you need to know about sleep apnea
Updated: Mar 2
Disregarding any ailment even minor one, may result in inability to perform at high level or even fatal outcomes. This is very true, when it comes to the sleeping disorder known as sleep apnea. People suffering from sleep apnea are incapable of getting the right amount of rest and may experience different forms of side effects, which can be very risky depending on the age, situation and the diseases in the anamnesis. Sleep apnea is the condition implying blockage of the airway and causing the breath to stop at irregular periods for 10 seconds or more. To understand whether you have this condition or not, you should determine the sound of the snore. One suffering from this disorder makes sounds that are the combination of grunt and growl. The result of this condition is that the snorer can’t get a “healthy” amount of sleep day after day. The other risky part of this condition is lack of oxygen, which, in turn, may lead to high blood pressure and severe heart problems. If the snorer already suffers from these conditions, they are only making it all worse when ignoring this sleeping disorder. If you are overweight, start losing the excess pounds. Also, you can resort to some dental procedures or undergo surgical procedures if the condition is getting worse. The earlier you address their condition, the better.
