If you’re living with sleep apnea, the effects of this dangerous condition often cause noticeable problems with your sleep and day-to-day life: loud snoring, chronic fatigue, loss of concentration, memory problems, and even systemic health complications like diabetes, high blood pressure, and cardiovascular problems. Sleep apnea is characterized by repeated cessations in breathing during sleep that can range from mild (5-15 events per hour) to severe (over 30 events per hour). Sleep apnea occurs when the tongue and soft tissues block the upper airway and halt airflow to the lungs. As oxygen levels decrease, the brain responds by partially waking the sleeper to resume airflow, which usually occurs with a loud gasp. These events can have serious and life-threatening consequences. Consequences that can be long term. If you snore loudly or have other signs of this condition, we encourage you to visit our oral surgeon for personalized sleep apnea treatment in Issaquah, WA.
