Sleep apnea is a somewhat common breathing disorder that affects many people on a daily basis. Over 90% of people who suffer from sleep apnea do not even know that they have the condition. Because it is a breathing disorder, sleep apnea mainly causes difficulty with breathing and is characterized by one trait – the sufferer stops breathing while unconscious for at least 10 seconds at a time. Dr. Paul Grin, DDS, MPH, APC, a Redondo Beach sleep apnea specialist, specializes in sleep apnea disorders and treating them by using the latest techniques and methods so that you can get a good night’s rest.

There are two main causes of sleep apnea – the first is the thought that the wrong signals are sent to the muscles by the brain. This would indicate a nervous system problem. The second is that there could possibly be an actual obstruction in the sleeper’s airway, causing blockage. This type of sleep apnea is more common. Sleep apnea can happen all throughout the night, without fully waking the sufferer. Symptoms of sleep apnea can include drowsiness, difficulty concentrating and remembering things, poor, restless sleep, and headaches. Should you experience any of these symptoms, you should contact our Redondo Beach sleep apnea specialist to make an appointment. Sleep apnea can wreak havoc on the sufferer’s sleep cycle and disrupt their daily lives.

Because sleep apnea restricts oxygen, it prevents the body from falling into a deep and solid sleep state. Those who suffer from sleep apnea do sleep at night, but never feel as if they have had a good night’s rest. The exhaustion and fatigue sleep apnea can cause has an effect on daily alertness and affect the sufferer in other ways. Heart disease, diabetes, depression and stroke can all be attributed in some way to sleep apnea. Depending on the severity of the apnea and the patient, our Redondo Beach sleep apnea specialist will diagnose and immediately treat those who suffer from this irritating medical condition. We know how valuable getting a good night’s rest is, and our goal is to get our patients back to normal by helping them get better sleep and lead healthier lives.
