Overview Of Sleep Apnea

One of the conditions which adversely affect our sleep is Sleep Apnea. It is a serious disorder where a person’s breathing is interrupted for a brief period of time, several times in a night. This can result in a reduced oxygen supply to the blood and subsequently to the brain of the person, which in turn can disrupt the normal bodily functions. Sleep apnea can result in a wide range of complications, such as high blood pressure, heart failure, diabetes, depression, headaches etc.
