Sleep apnea

What is sleep apnea?

Sleep apnea is the repeated pauses in breathing that occur during sleep and is associated with an emerging transient airway obstruction. Episodic breathing interruptions are not a problem. However, you should be concerned when such events begin to recur. Underestimating the symptoms of sleep apnea can lead to very serious health problems.

How to recognize nocturnal apnea?

The first symptom that should get your attention is loud, persistent snoring, disrupted by short pauses in breathing. Unconsciously withholding lung ventilation throughout the night rest cycle can be repeated up to several hundred times. And this, in turn, disrupts proper lung ventilation and results in hypoxia.

Perform a Home Apnea Test (polygraph) if you or your loved ones also notice:

Symptoms that recur when you sleep

  • loud, prolonged snoring
  • noticeable pauses in breathing
  • A feeling of shortness of breath and difficulty breathing freely during sleep
  • restless sleep
  • frequent getting up to go to the toilet

Symptoms occurring during the day

  • drowsiness despite having slept through the night
  • fatigue and lack of energy
  • Headache when you get out of bed
  • concentration disorders
  • increased irritability

What can happen if you don't take treatment for sleep apnea?

Improper oxygenation of the body resulting from disturbed, restless sleep can significantly affect the comfort of life, interpersonal relationships, creativity and work efficiency. In turn, it can result in very serious conditions, such as hypertension, heart disease, heart attacks and strokes.

Why CPAP therapy?

CPAP (continuous positive airway pressure) therapy is a simple and effective method of getting rid of all symptoms of sleep apnea. Significant improvements in quality of life often occur after the first two days of use. It involves maintaining adequate air pressure to prevent collapse of tissues that block the free flow of air.

You do not need to take medication or undergo surgery. The device delivers, while you sleep, a stream of air to prevent apnea. It is equipped with a modern mask for comfort and freedom of movement.
