Sleep apnea is a sleep disorder in which breathing is briefly and repeatedly interrupted during sleep. This can cause fragmented sleep and low blood oxygen levels and disorders of sleep.
If sleep apnea is left untreated, it may lead to debilitating daytime sleepiness, morning headaches, depression, and a general sense of fatigue. Over time it may cause high blood pressure, heart disease, strokes, diabetes, and other life-threatening and life-shortening diseases
One of the most common methods used to diagnose sleep apnea is a sleep study which can be done at our sleep lab overnight. Schedule your test today if you are experiencing difficulty concentrating, memory difficulties, or falling asleep while at work.
