Sleep Apnea: a treatable disorder in which a person stops breathing during sleep, for ten seconds or more, several times during sleep.
Sleep apnea is a common disorder that affects millions of men, women and children but is often undiagnosed. Approximately ten million Americans have unrecognized sleep apnea.
Untreated sleep apnea could result in high blood pressure, other cardio-vascular disease, and weight gain. People with untreated sleep apnea often complain of falling asleep inappropriately, morning headaches, memory problems, feeling of depression, reflux, and impotence.
If you or someone close to you is experiencing the above symptoms, please contact your physician. A physician evaluation is needed for the diagnosis and treatment plan. The physician may request a sleep test or study be performed. This test will allow your physician to determine the type and severity of your sleep apnea.
Moderate to severe sleep apnea is usually treated with continuous positive airway pressure therapy (CPAP). CPAP is a device that maintains your airway open by providing constant airflow at a physician prescribed pressure. For more severe sleep apnea your physician may prescribe bi-level positive airway pressure therapy (BiPAP). A BiPAP device blows air at two different prescribed pressures, one during inhalation and the other at exhalation.
