What is sleep apnea?
Sleep apnea should not be ignored.
So, what exactly IS sleep apnea? When someone stops breathing in their sleep, even for just a few minutes (but usually longer), they are most likely experiencing sleep apnea. Without their knowledge, people can stop breathing for a few minutes or longer and this can total up to hundreds of moments in a night. People don’t realize they’ve stopped breathing, since these involuntary episodes don’t cause full awakening. That’s the danger with sleep apnea – you can’t tell if you have it unless someone else tells you.
