Understanding Sleep Apnea

Sleep Apnea is a common but serious sleep disorder. The disorder is caused by repetitive periods when airflow is interrupted during sleep due to a narrowing or closure to the throat.


Diagnosing Sleep Apnea

Sleep clinics want you to stay as close to your night-time routine as possible in order to get the best results. Most sleep labs will give you check-in instructions a day or two before your study.


Treatment Options

For milder cases of sleep apnea, your doctor may recommend only lifestyle changes, such as losing weight or reducing alcohol consumption.
