Sleep apnea is a sleep disorder characterized by pauses in breathing or periods of shallow breathing during sleep that can last several seconds up to several minutes and occur many times during a sleep session.
Obstructive sleep apnea is a serious condition that can cause severe lifestyle and health problems. It can be associated with heart issues, diabetes and can lead to a shorter lifespan. Daytime sleepiness, decreased energy and poor concentration can lead to slow reaction times leading to accidents, moodiness and poor productivity.
The STOPBang questionnaire can quickly assess obstructive sleep apnea risk. Addressing your risk can proactively help you catch the problem and then seek treatment. A sleep study can determine obstructive sleep apnea presence and severity. It is estimated up to 80% of individuals with moderate to severe obstructive sleep apnea remain undiagnosed and untreated.
