Did you know that snoring can be a symptom of a serious medical condition that can be Life Threatening. Obstructive sleep apnea affects more than 20 million Americans and can lead to hypertension, heart attack, stroke, depression, muscle pain, fibromyalgia, morning headaches, and excessive daytime sleepiness. Most people with mild sleep apnea are aware that they snore and feel overtired or fatigued but are unaware of potentially serious medical problems which may exist.
"APNEA": derived from a Greek word meaning
"want of breath."
SLEEP APNEA: the cessation of breathing during sleep for at least 10 seconds at least five times an hour
