Obstructive sleep apnea is a condition that affects millions of people all over the planet. This condition makes it impossible for people to get a good night’s sleep.
It makes it impossible because it wakes the man, woman or child up as many as 30 times every hour to breathe.
What you Need to Know about OSA
If you have been following the DSM Solutions Blog you will know that obstructive sleep apnea keeps people awake at night. It keeps them awake because OSA causes the back of the throat to relax.
Once the relaxation sets in the person suffering from obstructive sleep apnea wakes up abruptly. That interruption in sleep comes because the brain wakes the person enabling him or her to breathe again.
While OSA may seem like a nuisance it is much more than that. In fact, it could be deadly.
Think of it this way, waking up that many times a night for months or even years will eventually take its toll on the body.
Because people who live or sleep alone rarely know they are suffering it is up to the bed partner or household to tell someone they have OSA.
People who live alone are the least likely to know they wake up abruptly gasping for breath.
