SLEEP APNEA

Experience a restful night's sleep and better health with a customized treatment plan with HollowBrook Sleep.

Sleep Apnea is a leading cause of excessive daytime sleepiness and health issues.

Combined with inadequate sleep and low levels of oxygen throughout the night, Sleep Apnea triggers multiple chronic health problems such as high blood pressure, diabetes, obesity, memory loss, and other cardiovascular disease.

Sleep disorders can prevent sufferers from enjoying a refreshing sleep causing feelings of exhaustion throughout the day. Sleep Apnea is a disorder in which you have pauses in breathing or shallow breaths while you sleep and does require treatment.

What Causes Sleep aPNEA?

Sleep apnea is usually a chronic or ongoing condition that disrupts your sleep as you move out of a deep sleep into a light sleep or jerk awake entirely. Snoring, a symptom of sleep apnea, occurs when an airway is blocked. As we sleep, the tongue falls back and can partially or fully block the airway. The body struggles to receive enough air, or oxygen, causing vibrations that result in snoring.

Sleep apnea episodes can occur 30-60 times each night. Sleep apnea causes the body to go into an oxygen deprivation state resulting in people feeling tired, experiencing headaches, and being irritable throughout the day.
