Sleep apnea, when the breathing passages of the nose and throat repeatedly constrict interrupting oxygen flow, may be one of the most widespread chronic conditions in the United States.
Oftentimes people with undiagnosed sleep apnea will feel fatigued or unrested, even after what felt like a full night’s sleep – because in reality, they were waking throughout the night to re-open their air passages. While this can certainly affect your quality of life, more serious cases are associated with risks of high blood pressure, stroke and heart attack.
If you think you may have obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), it’s time to see a sleep specialist. At Banner Health, our sleep apnea teams will work with you to determine your diagnosis and to find the right treatment plan.
