WHAT IS SLEEP APNEA?
Obstructive Sleep Apnea can be a dangerous condition that is caused when the muscles in back of the throat relax during sleep. This causes blockages of the airways and sometimes a person will even STOP breathing. When the breathing stops the brain senses it and wakes the person up to gasp for air. The person resumes sleeping, usually with heavy snoring and then the cycle begins again until the brain senses there is not enough oxygen.
These pauses can last from seconds to minutes and can occur numerous times within an hour. This results in a fragmented sleep and thus a person can be so tired during the day that he or she could fall asleep while driving. According to medical science being tired is not the only problem that is caused by sleep apnea. Headaches, heart attacks, high blood pressure, and depression are just some of the health problems linked to sleep apnea.
How can Dr. Zev Maybruch, Flushing & Queens Dentist, help you?
