Snoring & Sleep Apnea Treatments
It’s estimated that approximately 30% to 50% of the US population snores at one time or another, some significantly. Snoring can cause several problems, including sleep disturbances and waking episodes. It is important to distinguish between snoring and Sleep Apnea.
Many people snore, but snoring does not always equal Sleep Apnea. Sleep Apnea means that there is an obstruction to the flow of air when breathing in. Sleep Apnea causes a disturbance in the quality of sleep and may lead to more serious health issues including a drop in blood oxygen level which can strain the heart, lungs, and the rest of the body.
