Sleep apnea is a very common yet serious sleeping disorder which is often seen by our sleeping disorder specialist. Sleep apnea affects anywhere between 2% and 4% of men in their middle ages, and 4% to 9% of women in this same age bracket. Surprisingly, 90% of those with sleep apnea remain undiagnosed, which can put their good health at risk. If you have the signs of sleep apnea you will want to come in and see our specialist to be evaluated for this Torrance CA sleeping disorder.
When a patient has sleep apnea, their bodies actually end up trying to function on little or no rest. This is because their nightly rest is constantly interrupted. Sleep apnea is actually a breathing disorder that causes patients to have difficulty breathing, while sleeping. The patient who has sleep apnea will stop breathing while unconscious for at least 10 seconds at a time. This lapse in breathing will happen repeatedly throughout the night. However the patient is generally not awoken into full consciousness by this occurrence. In fact they are usually unaware that it is happening at all. Symptoms of sleep apnea can include restless sleep, drowsiness during the day, difficulty concentrating, faulty memory, headaches, loud snoring, and even personality changes. Sleep apnea can go on to cause other serious medical problems including high blood pressure, heart disease, diabetes, depression, and even stroke. The way sleep apnea is treated will depend on each individual patient. The first step to having your sleep apnea treated, is to come in and see our Torrance CA sleeping disorder specialist, Dr. Paul Grin.
