What is Sleep Apnea

More Serious than Just Being Sleepy

Being tired is a risk in itself; after all, drowsy driving can be just as dangerous as drunk driving. However, untreated sleep apnea can have a devastating impact on your body from head to toe.

Frequently Asked Questions

What Are the Warning Signs of Sleep Apnea?

Although it is one of most common symptoms, loud snoring isn’t the only indication of sleep apnea. Many sufferers have one or more gasps for breath during the night, fatigue, mood swings, headaches, sexual dysfunction, struggles focusing, memory loss, and more. These symptoms, especially in conjunction with snoring, could mean that you or your partner needs to be tested for sleep apnea.

What Causes Sleep Apnea?

Although there are other types of sleep apnea with different causes, most often lapses in breathing occur when facial and neck tissues relax and block their airway. The causes of obstructive sleep apnea may vary from patient to patient and may be a combination of factors. Those who are male, older, or obese or have a thick neck are at a higher risk of this type of sleep apnea. Patients who take muscle relaxers on a regular basis may also suffer from sleep apnea.

Can Sleep Apnea Cure Itself?

In general, sleep apnea doesn’t go away without some sort of intervention. In some situations, symptoms of sleep apnea can be alleviated through losing excess weight, but in other cases, treatment is still needed. If you go without necessary therapy, you not only impact quality of life in the daytime, but you could even shorten your lifespan. Just as one example, sleep apnea increases the risk of heart disease or a cardiovascular event like a heart attack or stroke!

How Serious Is Sleep Apnea?

It can be easy to brush off sleep apnea symptoms. However, it isn’t something you should ignore or take too lightly. Fatigue can lead to a higher risk of accidents, potentially putting lives at risk. In addition, mental health and relationships—particularly with your partner—can suffer as a result of sleep apnea. Perhaps most importantly, untreated sleep apnea can negatively affect how your body’s systems and functions, such as your cardiovascular system, possibly leading to a premature stroke or heart attack.

How Do You Fix Sleep Apnea?

The main objective of most sleep apnea treatment is to open up the airway and remove blockage. Traditionally, a CPAP machine is used. This method requires wearing a mask that delivers constant air flow, which forces air in. As you might imagine, this treatment can be uncomfortable or insufficient for some patients. Fortunately, Dr. Bragg takes advantage of various oral appliances to reposition the lower jaw, keeping facial tissues from obstructing breathing.
