Understanding Snoring and Obstructive Sleep Apnea
Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is a sleep disorder that causes breathing to repeatedly stop and start during sleep. It occurs when the muscles at the back of the throat fail to keep the airway open, causing breathing to become shallow or to pause altogether.
This can result in a decrease in oxygen levels in the blood, which triggers the brain to wake up briefly to reopen the airway. As a result, sleep is frequently interrupted, leading to daytime sleepiness and other symptoms.
OSA is a common condition that affects millions of people worldwide, but many people with OSA are unaware they have it. It can affect people of any age, but it is more common in middle-aged and older adults, particularly those who are overweight or obese.
How Snoring Affects Your Health
While snoring may seem harmless, it can actually have a significant impact on your health. Obstructive sleep apnea is linked to an increased risk of high blood pressure, heart disease, stroke, and type 2 diabetes.
Snoring can also have negative effects on your mental health, causing irritability, difficulty concentrating, and even depression. Chronic snoring can lead to daytime fatigue, which can affect your ability to perform everyday tasks and affect your overall quality of life.
