  • Chicago, IL (1888PressRelease) August 08, 2013 - Sleep apnea is a quite common medical problem. Researchers have revealed that one in five adults suffers from mild sleep apnea and one in 15 adults suffer from moderate sleep apnea. Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), which is a potentially life-threatening condition, affects 1% to 3% of children.

    In case of OSA, during sleep, the upper airway is generally obstructed by excess tissue, large tonsils or a large tongue. Airway muscles, nasal passages, and the position of the jaw may also contribute to the problem. The main symptoms of sleep apnea include loud snoring, shortness of breath, drowsiness, dry mouth, and morning headache.

    Sleep apnea is difficult to detect and in most of the cases it is diagnosed by the sleeping partner of the patient. People with sleep apnea typically snore and are at increased risk for fatigue, weight gain, hypertension and impotence.
