Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA)
OSA, is seen in all age groups, and symptoms include snoring and daytime sleepiness. The risks created are high blood pressure, heart disease, diabetes, stroke, depression, & car accidents (sleepy while driving). Signs of OSA are: 1) Your breathing during sleep is reduced (or may stop), OR having breathing difficulties when asleep OSA can be associated with other medical problems, and you may not be aware of it happening. It can be treated fully by using CPAP (Continuous positive airway pressure / power), that provides continuous mild air pressure, keeping the airways open for those who breathe spontaneously allowing for smoother breathing & sleep.
