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 airway which inhibits regular breathing. This collapse is associated with numerous potential factors including having an enlarged tongue, weak airway 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.
Symptoms to watch out for:
If you are experiencing any of these symptoms on a regular basis, please contact the Oxylife location nearest you.
Has someone you love recently been diagnosed with sleep apnea? Our staff can help you discover the products best suited for managing the symptoms. While there are a variety of sleep therapy devices to choose from, the most commonly used by sufferers of sleep apnea is the Auto/Fixed Pressure CPAP (Continuous Positive Airway Pressure) machine. The CPAP machine controls the flow of air entering your airway which allows the airway to remain open as you sleep.
