What You Should Know

Sleep apnea is a serious disorder that occurs when someone’s breathing is interrupted during sleep. People with untreated sleep apnea stop breathing repeatedly during the night, sometimes hundreds of times.

  • Incidence

    Sleep apnea happens in all ages, not just larger men, like many used to think. Sleep apnea occurs in one in four men and one in 10 women. It is estimated that nearly 25 million people experience sleep apnea and remain undiagnosed.

  • Symptoms

    Snoring is just one of the symptoms of sleep apnea. Other symptoms or signs include: daytime sleepiness or fatigue; restlessness during sleep; waking up during the middle of the night; dry mouth or sore throat; sudden awakenings during the night; teeth grinding, clenching, bruxism, difficulty concentrating or irritability; anxiety or depression; night sweats; nighttime urination; sexual dysfunction; mouth breathing; headaches.

  • Related Health Problems

    If left untreated, sleep apnea can cause a number of health problems like, high blood pressure, stroke, heart attacks, heart failure, diabetes and much more. Untreated sleep apnea can also be responsible for daytime sleepiness and grogginess, which can lead to job impairment, work-related accidents and motor vehicle crashes, as well as underachievement in school in children and adolescents.
