Facts about sleep

Have you been told that you snore loudly? Do you wake up feeling tired after a full night's sleep? Are you sleepy during the day? If so you may have obstructive sleep apnea. Obstructive Sleep Apnea occurs due to a blockage of the airway from a variety of causes. Sleep apnea can be a severe medical condition significantly affecting sleepers from infancy to adulthood.

Sleep medicine is a young discipline. However, approximately over 100 different sleep disorders are already known. Sleep disorders can lead to significant health problems and impact quality of life. Everyday examples highlight the significance of sleep disorders: the person who snores so loudly that they disturb the sleep of others; the person who stops breathing frequently during the night; the baby who stops breathing and has to be rushed to the emergency room; the person who falls asleep on short drives or in social situations, or who has difficulty staying awake at work or school; the person who has difficulty sleeping night after night and loses hope that sleep will be normal again. These are common examples of patients who suffer from sleep disorders. These conditions can have devastating effect on the lives of those affected such as: Heart disease, high blood pressure, strokes and sexual dysfunction can all be linked to sleep disorders.

The severity of sleep apnea can range from mild snoring, to life threatening conditions, including increased risk of stroke, heart complications and a greater risk of accidents. The referral to ENT doctor to rule out any blockage in your nose or throat or a Cardiologist for an evaluation or to a Neurologist may be necessary to look for causes of central sleep apnea once some abnormality is found during sleep study.
