What is sleep apnea?
Sleep apnea is a serious sleep disorder in which the person stops breathing in the middle of sleep. Recent studies have shown that untreated sleep apnea can lead to heart disease, diabetes, death and many other potentially dangerous conditions. Most common symptoms include loud snoring and fatigue throughout the day even with a full nights rest. Diagnosis can be made from a simple take home sleep kit available at your dentist or doctor's office.
