Signs and symptoms of Obstructive Sleep Apnea

Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) can occur in men, women and children of all age and sizes. While people with sleep apnea are inclined to snore, not everyone who snores has sleep apnea. In the most severe cases, sleep apnea can be life threatening. Left untreated, sleep apnea increases the risks for high blood pressure, heart attack, stroke, and other medical conditions.

Common symptoms of OSA may include:

  • Excessive Daytime Sleepiness
  • Loud, disruptive snoring
  • Nocturnal pauses in breathing
  • Gasping or choking for air during sleep
  • Restless Sleep
  • Depression
  • Sexual dysfunction
