Is Sleep Apnea Affecting Your Well-Being?
While sleep apnea is a condition that manifests at night, the symptoms occur mainly during the day. Many patients who seek to stop snoring on the Upper East Side, find that a list of wellness concerns they have can be directly attributed to their sleep disorder, such as:
- Chronic snoring
- Gasping for air during sleep
- Headaches upon waking
- Daytime fatigue
- Poor concentration or memory
What is Obstructive Sleep Apnea?
There are two types of sleep apnea: central and obstructive. Central sleep apnea (CSA)
is caused by a failure of the brain to signal the muscles that control breathing. It is extremely rare. Most patients who have sleep apnea on the Upper East Side, suffer from obstructive sleep apnea (OSA)
. OSA is a result of an airway blockage. This typically occurs when the soft tissue at the back of the throat collapses, causing you to stop breathing or gasp for air.
Sleep deprivation due to sleep apnea has been linked to numerous risks to your health, including:
- Car accidents
- High blood pressure
