WHAT IS SLEEP APNEA?
Obstructive sleep apnea (otherwise known as snoring) is a disorder that occurs when breathing has been interrupted while sleeping. Through medical studies, we understand that sleep interruption can happen hundreds of times in a single night. As you can imagine, this can cause someone to feel very unrested even when they are getting a full night's sleep. Not to mention, all the health risks involved if sleep apnea is left untreated.
