Sleep Apnea Treatment Des MoinesA condition that is often difficult to diagnose, sleep apnea prevents you from getting quality sleep and in turn disrupts your normal life. Breathing pauses and shallow breathing are common characteristics of sleep apnea. If you find yourself waking up at night gasping for air or your partner finds you snoring loudly, you might be suffering from sleep apnea.

The condition isn’t easily diagnosable by the one suffering from it because it occurs while sleeping.

Effects of Sleep Apnea

From headaches to having difficulty concentrating, you can suffer from a wide number of problems due to not having proper quality sleep. Sleep apnea moves you from deep sleep to a light one, making you feel sleepy in your daytime hours.

Your partner or family member can be the first to notice the signs. Ask them if they notice any difference in the way you breathe and whether you snore loudly while sleeping. Loud snores can happen when air squeezes past your airway that has either collapsed or been blocked; two things that happen in sleep apnea.

A lot of daytime sleepiness is caused due to sleep apnea. While overweight people are more prone to suffer from the disease, sleep apnea can affect anyone including children.

Treatment for Sleep Apnea

Sleep apnea treatment deserves the highest priority and it is important to diagnose the condition properly. Unlike a virus or infection, sleep apnea is not something you can diagnose with a quick visit to the doctor. An overnight stay at a dedicated sleep apnea facility is usually the only way to fully diagnose this condition.
