What is Sleep Apnea?

Sleep apnea is a disorder affecting millions of people, sometimes with severe consequences. In fact, it's estimated sleep apnea contributes to 450,000 deaths per year!
What causes sleep apnea? When you sleep, your throat and jaw muscles relax allowing your tongue to block your airway.
As a result, you may stop breathing while you sleep multiple times throughout the night. This keeps much-needed oxygen from reaching your brain, causing your heart to work harder.
Sleep apnea is experienced by both adults and children!
There are many warning signs for sleep apnea. Chronic, loud snoring is one of the most obvious symptoms. Others to watch for include:
