Snoring and Sleep Apnea
What is Obstructive Sleep Apnea?
This can reduce the amount of oxygen reaching the brain and the body. When this happens, the brain alerts the muscles in the airway to tighten up and unblock the passage, resulting in many people waking up. This leads to a repetitive cycle of blocking and unblocking the airway, causing significant disruption to sleep. Not only does disruption of sleep occur, but obstructive sleep apnea can also trigger other severe health problems, including heart-related issues, due to the body not receiving an adequate amount of oxygen.
