Like the title asks, are you not breathing when you sleep?
Do you feel like you can’t sleep enough?
Have you fallen asleep driving?
Do you feel irritable most days?
Do you have trouble staying asleep?
Do you wake up gasping?
All of these questions poke at one problem. Sleep apnea.
What is sleep apnea?
It’s a common and potentially serious condition literally meaning: no breathing during sleep.
So what if I stop breathing when I sleep? What’s the worst that could happen?
According to various studies through the American Association of Respiratory Therapy, American Heart Association, Mayo Clinic and numerous other institutions (Google: sleep apnea research) are finding links related to Diabetes, high blood pressure, and heart disease.
So what’s the worst that could happen? You could be spending significant time in the hospital, doctors office and spending huge amounts of money on your health care. The end point is very uncomfortable to talk about. As a clinician based business we have seen first hand the destruction it can cause.
