What is Sleep Apnea?
SA is a sleep disorder characterized by abnormal pauses in breathing or instances of abnormally low breathing during sleep. Apnea means “no oxygen” and sleep apnea patients are depriving their brains and bodies of oxygen many times, every single night. It’s like you’re suffocating in your own bed, every single night. Not only is it a chronic health problem, it can become worse over time.
