What is Sleep Apnea

Sleep Apnea

Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) is the most common Sleep Disordered Breathing and occurs when a patient’s airway closes during sleep (partially or fully) while attempting to breathe.

Obstructive Sleep Apnea Affects Over 40 Million Adults in the U.S. Alone

The American Heart Association (2020) called it “The Not-So Silent Killer“.

Untreated obstructive sleep apnea is associated with hypertension, heart disease, stroke, daytime sleepiness, cognitive dysfunction, mood disorders and sudden death.
