Do You Have Sleep Apnea?
Do you snore? Wake up feeling tired after a full night’s sleep? If so, you may be among millions of North Americans who have a common, yet potentially dangerous sleep disorder called sleep apnea. “Apnea” – which is Greek for “without breath” – refers to episodes where a person pauses in breathing during sleep. Typically, an episode lasts long enough that one or more breaths are missed, and can occur dozens or even hundreds of times throughout the night.
