Sleep Apnea Seattle

The Anatomy of a Sleep Apnea Episode:

 
  1. As airflow stops during a sleep apnea episode, the oxygen level in your blood drops.
  2. Your brain responds by briefly disturbing your sleep enough to kick start breathing — which often resumes with a gasp or a choking sound.
  3. If you have OBSTRUCTIVE sleep apnea, you probably won’t remember these awakenings. Most of the time, you’ll stir just enough to tighten your throat muscles and open your windpipe.
  4. In CENTRAL sleep apnea, you may be conscious of your awakenings.
  5. This can occur hundreds of times each night!

The resulting lack of oxygen can heighten your risk of stroke, cardiovascular disease, and other heart conditions. On top of this, it can also accelerate the aging process; compromise your safety, health and overall quality of life.
