What is Sleep Apnea?
When someone has sleep apnea, breathing stops frequently throughout the night. Breathing is essential to life; we need to breathe to release carbon dioxide and take in oxygen. The interruptions in breathing associated with sleep apnea can have a dramatic impact on your daily life and can even shorten your lifespan. We have the technology and training necessary to evaluate your case and determine which treatment can provide the solution you need.
Obstructive sleep apnea, OSA, is the most common form of sleep apnea. This occurs when breathing repeatedly stops and starts during sleep. Anyone can develop OSA, although it most commonly affects middle-aged and older adults.
