What Is Sleep Apnea?

Sleep apnea is a sleep disorder marked by frequent disruptions in breathing during sleep. The predominant form, obstructive sleep apnea, arises when relaxed throat muscles impede airflow.

Various factors increase the risk of developing obstructive sleep apnea, including smoking, a family history of the condition, aging, being male, excess weight concentrated around the torso and neck, a narrowed airway due to factors like enlarged tonsils, and the presence of certain medical conditions such as hypertension and hormonal imbalances.

The Risks of Untreated Sleep Apnea

Avoiding sleep apnea treatment can trigger an array of severe health complications. The repetitive interruptions in breathing during sleep deprive the body of oxygen, placing strain on the heart and cardiovascular system. This prolonged strain increases the risk of developing conditions such as hypertension, coronary artery disease, heart attacks, and irregular heart rhythms.

Sleep apnea can lead to daytime drowsiness, impair cognitive function, heighten the risk of accidents, and diminish overall quality of life. Untreated sleep apnea is linked to an increased likelihood of developing metabolic disorders like type 2 diabetes, weight gain, and mood disorders such as depression. Given these potential consequences, seeking timely diagnosis and treatment for sleep apnea is crucial to safeguard sleep quality and long-term health.
