It’s hard not to get frustrated at the person sleeping next to you when they’re snoring. It’s late. Actually, it’s early. You love this person but the snoring has got to stop.
Except, what if it can’t?
Sometimes, snoring is more than just an annoyance. It could be the result of Sleep Apnea. Sleep Apnea is a serious sleep disorder that occurs when a person’s breathing is interrupted during sleep. This can cause a person to momentarily stop breathing completely and repeatedly, numerous times throughout the night, resulting in the brain and the rest of the body not getting enough oxygen.
The effects of Sleep Apnea are vast, varied, and dangerous if they go untreated. It can leave sufferers with excessive sleepiness during the day, increasing the likelihood of accidents. It can also put them at a higher risk for heart attacks and strokes. In severe cases, Sleep Apnea can even result in death. This is a disease that affects people of all ages and backgrounds and it is one that should not be ignored.
