7Obstructive Sleep Apnea

Via healthysleeptexas.com

Obstructive sleep apnea is one of the most common sleep disorders in the world. Anyone can develop the disorder, but it is prevalent in overweight, middle-aged adults. It occurs when the throat muscles suddenly open, close, and block the flow of oxygen. Sufferers from obstructive sleep apnea will stop and

start breathing intermittently throughout sleep. Of course, people are unconscious, and are not aware this is happening. If the thought of losing oxygen in your sleep isn’t scary enough, sleep apnea can lead to cardiovascular complications, chronic fatigue, and eye problems.
