What Is Sleep Apnea? 

Sleep apnea is a breathing condition that causes your breathing to stop or become very shallow for short periods of time while you are asleep. Obstructive sleep apnea is the most common type of sleep apnea and it causes the airways to collapse or become closed off.


    • Loud Snoring: Loud snoring is a main symptom of sleep apnea. Snoring means that the airways are somewhat obstructed
  • Breathing Issues: If you have short periods where you are not breathing while you are sleeping this could be an indication of sleep apnea
  • Hypersomnia: Hypersomnia is also described as daytime sleepiness. This is a key indicator that your body is not getting adequate rest whenever you are sleeping
  • Dry Mouth: If you are waking up with a dry mouth, it is likely that this is caused by snoring or gasping for air. This is a sign that you may be dealing with sleep apnea
