Sleep apnea is a dangerous sleep ailment that transpires when a person’s breathing is disrupted during sleep. Individuals with untreated sleep apnea stop breathing frequently throughout their sleep. At times hundreds of such events occur every night: Meaning the brain and the rest of the body are not getting enough oxygen.
Obstructive sleep apnea can produce fragmented sleep and low blood oxygen levels. For individuals with OSA, the combination of disordered sleep and oxygen starvation may lead to the problems displayed above as well as hypertension, heart disease and mood and memory problems.
Untreated sleep apnea can also be tied to poor performance in normal activities, such as at work and school, motor vehicle collisions, and scholastic underachievement in children and adolescents.
