Sleep apnea occurs when airway obstruction interrupts normal breathing that can last 10 seconds or longer. If sleep apnea is diagnosed, then appropriate treatment would depend on whether you have been diagnosed with mild, moderate or severe sleep apnea. Socially, snoring can disrupt the sleep of loved ones, many of whom choose to sleep separately from their partner. A thorough history needs to be done that will take into account your sleeping habits, medications, and lifestyle issues such as weight that may play a significant role in his condition.

Sleep apnea causes daytime sleepiness and has been linked to higher incidences of stroke, heart disease, and even weight gain.
According to the National Institutes of Health, approximately 18 million people in the United States suffer from sleep apnea with fewer than 50% properly diagnosed. After your history and physical exam, if we suspect sleep apnea, then a sleep study would be ordered. The sleep study may be done at one of our affiliated sleep labs or a home sleep study might be ordered.
