What Is Sleep Apnea?

Sleep apnea is a disorder in which you stop breathing periodically throughout the night. These lapses in breathing can occur many times per hour and leave you feeling exhausted. When your breathing stops, usually from your tongue or tissues blocking your throat, your body responds by jerking you awake every time so you can breathe again. Managing your sleep apnea is critical to getting the rest you need, and we can help you.

Sleep Apnea Symptoms

  • Chronic Snoring
  • Tired Throughout the Day
  • Irritability
  • Mood Swings
  • Sore Throat upon Wakening

What Causes Sleep Apnea?

There are several risk factors that make it more likely for you to develop sleep apnea.

  • Overweight – If you are overweight, you are at a higher risk of developing sleep apnea than those at a healthy weight.
  • Large Neck – Males with at least a 17-inch neck circumference and women with at least a 16-inch neck measurement are at a higher risk of sleep apnea.
  • Gender – Males are more likely to develop sleep apnea than women.
