Default Identifying Sleep Apnea For Free


Sleep apnea is a condition that results in regular breathing being halted for periods of just a few seconds to as long as a minute and a half. It is most likely to occur in overweight individuals but that is not always the case and research indicates that up to 25% of Americans suffer from apnea to some degree.

Signs that you may have apnea include not feeling rested upon waking, fatigue throughout the day, and brain fog, along with symptoms that your doctor can measure such as elevated blood pressure, high cholesterol, and elevated cortisol.
Because the body is basically suffocating many times throughout the night, apnea produces a number of harmful effects, such as impaired immune function, memory loss, heart disease, and even obesity. While the generally-prescribed test involves an overnight sleep study that will cost thousands of dollars, research has shown that the exact same results can be had in the comfort of your own home with a pulse oximeter.
