Do you snore heavily when sleeping? Are you constantly fatigued throughout the day? Has your partner mentioned your inconsistent sleeping patterns? If you answered yes to these questions, it may be an indicator you suffer from obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). OSA is a sleep-related disorder that causes a person to stop breathing throughout the night when their airway becomes obstructed. These pauses in breathing can vary from a few seconds to a minute or longer, which makes it dangerous for the person who is suffering from this condition. Although sleep apnea requires a medical diagnosis, there are factors that may make you more vulnerable to the disorder, such as:
- Risk of sleep apnea is more common in people who are overweight.
- Men are more prone to sleep apnea than women.
- Sleep apnea affects individuals who are 41-60+ years of age the most.1
- Common symptoms include snoring and restless sleep or fatigue (due to sleep disruption).
- Family history of sleep apnea.
