Consequences of sleep apnea range from annoying to life-threatening and include depression, irritability, sexual dysfunction, learning and memory difficulties.

Q: What is sleep apnea?
A: Sleep apnea causes people to stop breathing for brief periods of time (usually 10-20 seconds) while asleep. The pauses in breathing can be very frequent, occurring 30 times or more per hour. Risk factors include being male, overweight and over the age of forty, but sleep apnea can affect anyone at any age. The most common kind of sleep apnea is termed obstructive sleep apnea, and a less common form of sleep apnea is central sleep apnea.

 

Sleep apnea often results in feelings of fatigue and excessive daytime sleepiness since the ability to reach deep, restorative sleep stages is impaired. Other warning signs of sleep apnea are often noticed by bed partners and include loud snoring and making snorting or choking sounds at night. Those affected may experience awakening with brief periods of shortness of breath.
