About Sleep Apnea

sleep apnea candidateSleep apnea or OSD (obstructive sleep apnea) is a serious physical condition that is associated with snoring but has only recently been recognized as being associated with many other severe physical problems.

Because it occurs while someone is asleep, almost all people who have this condition are totally unaware of it.

All they know is that they don’t feel refreshed when they wake up in the morning no matter how long they sleep and generally feel dog tired throughout the day.  They find they can easily fall asleep at their desk at work, watching TV, just talking to someone or even while driving a car.

There are serious physical consequences to having the condition, including high blood pressure, depression and others.

So it is important to know about sleep apnea, particularly if you are overweight, snore heavily and exhibit the symptoms associated with the condition.
