Sleep Apnea Treatment in Newtown, PA
Does your snoring keep your partner awake at night? Do you often feel tired, fatigued, or sleepy during the daytime? Has anyone observed you gasping during your sleep? Do you have high blood pressure? These are some common questions to help discover whether your snoring is harmless or may potentially be a more serious condition known as Obstructive Sleep Apnea.
Snoring occurs due to a partially obstructed airway during sleep, so what is Sleep Apnea? Sleep Apnea is a potentially serious sleep disorder in which breathing repeatedly stops and starts during sleep, robbing your body of oxygen.
- Mild Apnea having 5-15 breath-holding or shallow breaths per hour
- Moderate Apnea having 16-30 breath-holding or shallow breaths per house
- Severe Apnea having 30+ breath-holding or shallow breaths per hour
Sleep Apnea Symptoms
- Did you know that 77% of people who clench their teeth at night have sleep apnea or UARS (Upper Airway Resistance Syndrome)?
- High blood pressure or heart problems. Sudden drops in blood oxygen levels that occur during sleep apnea increase blood pressure and strain the cardiovascular system. Having obstructive sleep apnea increases your risk of high blood pressure (hypertension).
- Obstructive sleep apnea might also increase your risk of recurrent heart attack, stroke, and abnormal heartbeats, such as atrial fibrillation. If you have heart disease, multiple episodes of low blood oxygen (hypoxia or hypoxemia) can lead to sudden death from an irregular heartbeat.
