Sleep Apnea

Sleep apnea is disturbed breathing during sleep. Symptoms can range from mild to serious, where you stop breathing for up to 90 seconds. Repeated nightly disturbances cause you to wake up and leave you sleepy the next day. This strains your heart and lungs and elevates blood pressure.

Heavy snoring is now recognized as a symptom of possible sleep apnea.
