Obstructive Sleep Apnea Quiz

What happens if you have sleep apnea?

Obstructive Sleep Apnea occurs when breathing is reduced or stopped altogether. This may happen many times in a night.

If you have sleep apnea you may snore, toss and turn, stop breathing or gasp for air during the night. As your oxygen levels fall, normal sleep is briefly interrupted by very light sleep or wakefulness. This allows breathing to start again. Your bed partner is usually the one who notices this gasping or snoring.

Most people who have sleep apnea don’t realise they have it and while more commonly diagnosed in men, women and children may also develop sleep apnea. 

Sleep apnea is a serious medical condition which untreated can lead to heart disease, high blood pressure and diabetes.

Without treatment you can experience sleepiness, an inability to concentrate and poor performance at work or when driving.
