Sleep Apnea Sunnyvale
SLEEPLESS? DON’T RULE OUT SLEEP APNEA
Sleep apnea affects the lives of 20 million Americans, including thousands in the Sunnyvale area, and 95% of them don’t even know it.
Apnea means temporary cessation of breathing. Sleep apnea occurs when an excessive amount of soft tissue anywhere in the airway collapses or obstructs the path while you sleep. As a result of this, you can’t breathe easily. This can happen up to 100 times per hour, and if it does, you frantically gasp for air, without fully waking up. This has a variety of serious impact on your health.
The lack of deep sleep means you stay tired despite having slept. It could lead to lack of full awareness when driving for example and contributes to many accidents and even deaths. At the office, you will find it hard to concentrate or remember things and may fall asleep in meetings (even when they are not boring!). Inadequate sleep can also cause depression, irritability, and lowered immunity. Over time, this can lead to a much higher risk for high blood pressure, arrhythmia, diabetes, obesity, heart attack and stroke.
