Obstructive sleep apnea is a suffocation disease (i.e., you stop breathing) that took the lives of many people including celebrity Carrie Fisher and NFL Hall of Famer Reggie White. Untreated, this condition can increase your chance of having a heart attack or stroke. Obstructive sleep apnea is even associated with the development of memory problems such as dementia.


Obstructive sleep apnea is a disease where your airway collapses like a straw being squeezed multiple times per hour. When this occurs repeatedly, it puts stress on the entire body which can cause issues. Hypertension (aka high blood pressure) and diabetes (aka sugar disease) are often worsened by this condition. Although being overweight or obese increases your odds of having this condition, many people who have ideal body weights suffer from this condition.


The classical symptoms of obstructive sleep apnea are any combination of snoring, stopping breathing, waking up multiple times randomly or to urinate, feeling unrefreshed in the morning, being tired throughout the day, or feeling excessively sleepy. Grinding teeth during the night, sweating during sleep, and waking up from heart burn can also be signs of this condition. Most people with sleep apnea have no idea they are suffocating throughout the night.


There are 2 ways to test for obstructive sleep apnea: 1) home sleep study or 2) in lab sleep study. The advantage of a home sleep study is that you can do it from the comfort of your own home. The advantage of the in lab sleep study is that you can obtain more information from more comprehensive monitoring.


For most people, the home sleep study is all they need and for that reason, Hypnos Health offers this service. Sign up to see if you suffer from this condition today.
