Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA)
OSA is caused by a blockage in your airway that can disrupt your breathing while you sleep. This disruption in breathing can cause you to wake up repeatedly throughout the night. You may not be aware that this is happening, but it can prevent you from a good night’s sleep. The symptoms those alarm about the possibility of OSA are snoring, excessive daytime sleepiness (EDS), easy fatigability, trouble concentrating. If it is remained untreated there is increased risk of high blood pressure, heart disease, stroke, diabetes, depression etc. Overnight sleep study is the way to identify the severity of OSA and plan for various treatment options.
