Sleep Disorders

Snoring is the sound of partially obstructed breathing during sleep. Snoring can be harmless but it may also be the sign of a more serious condition known as Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA). Obstructive Sleep Apnea is recognized as repeated episodes of cessation in in breathing during sleep. OSA is linked to cardiovascular conditions such as hypertension, heart disease and stroke. OSA can also be associated with daytime sleepiness, headaches, memory loss, depression, mood changes and motor vehicle accidents.
