Sleep Apnea: Description and Symptoms
Sleep apnea is a very common disorder, affecting between 8-15% of Canadian adults. There are a number of factors that contribute to the condition. Physiologically, its direct cause is the collapse of soft tissue within the throat which inhibits regular breathing. This collapse is associated with numerous potential factors including having an enlarged tongue, weak throat muscles, obesity, and others. Sleep disorders can have a profound effect on your daily energy level, cognitive ability, and long-term health. If left untreated, sleep apnea can prove fatal in some cases.
