Risks Of Sleep Apnea

Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) can be a severe sleep disorder if your breathing stops and restarts more than 30 times an hour while you sleep. Untreated sleep apnea can have serious long-term effects on your health, such as:

  • heart disease
  • high blood pressure
  • stroke
  • depression
  • diabetes

There are secondary effects as well, such as automobile accidents caused by falling asleep at the wheel.
