• Sleep apnea affects more than 20 million Americans. Its prevalence is similar to asthma
and diabetes.
• Adequate sleep is essential for physical and mental health. Interrupted sleep can lead to
bigger health issues like high blood pressure, diabetes, heart disease, stroke, depression
and obesity.
• During obstructive sleep apnea, the throat muscles relax and the windpipe collapses
which interrupts breathing. Low oxygen in the blood signals the brain to wake up the
person enough to tighten the muscles and open the windpipe.
• Most pauses in breathing last between 10 and 30 seconds but some people with severe
sleep apnea may not breathe for one minute or longer. These pauses may occur hundreds
of times a night.
• Some risk factors are being overweight or obese, having a large neck size, smoking,
middle-aged or older men and post-menopausal women and ethnic minorities.
• Symptoms of sleep apnea are high blood pressure, drowsiness, lack of energy, snoring,
nighttime gasping, choking or coughing, morning headaches, depression, and difficulty
concentrating, frequent nocturnal urination.
• About 80 -90% of adults with obstructive sleep apnea remain undiagnosed.
• Diagnosis is determined by monitoring a person's sleep pattern (sleep study) at a sleep
center and typical treatment is CPAP (continuous positive airway pressure) or an oral
appliance. Surgery is usually a last result.
• CPAP is only effective if used and there are many masks available for optimal comfort
and effectiveness. Oral appliances look like sports mouth guards and open the airway by
repositioning the lower jaw.
