Did you know you might not wake up tomorrow?
Left untreated, sleep apnea can be deadly. This life-threatening condition can increase the risk of:
- High blood pressure
- COPD or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease
- Heart attack
- Arrhythmias or irregular heartbeat
- Work-related or driving accidents
Not to mention the cost in your personal life. Sleep deprivation affects your mood, making you irritable and cranky. Relationships with your family, friends and co-workers can suffer.
Your love life can be at risk!
If you’re tired all the time, chances are you’re not in the mood for romance very often. Who cares about romance when they’re exhausted?
You may not be the only who is tired… If you suffer from sleep apnea, and have frequent choking, snoring and gasping episodes during the night, your partner is probably suffering as well.
Did you know you could be a danger to the public?
Sleep deprivation affects all aspects of your life. People who are fatigued and not concentrating often cause work-related and driving accidents. Sleep deprivation affects your reaction time. Studies have shown that more than one-third of people said they had driven while feeling tired and have fallen asleep!
Lifestyle changes, mouthpieces, surgery, and/or breathing devices can successfully treat sleep apnea in many people.
