Frequently Asked Questions
Sleep apnea is the most common sleep disorder affecting more than 18 million adults in the U.S. People with untreated sleep apnea stop breathing repeatedly during their sleep, sometimes hundreds of times during the night and often for a minute or longer.
The most common type, obstructive sleep apnea, causes snoring, shallow breathing and gasping for air. Sleep apnea needs to be treated for your safety!
Clinical studies have shown that treatment of sleep apnea can:
- Improve daytime energy and stamina
- Lower blood pressure
- Relieve excess stress on the heart and vascular system
