Description

Sleep Apnea is considered a life threatening medical disorder in which a person stops breathing during sleep. The Institute of Medicine reports that 50 to 70 million Americans suffer from chronic sleep disorders including sleep apnea. Daytime drowsiness alone costs the economy $150 billion in lost productivity and workplace accidents, and another $48 billion in medical expenses related to auto accidents involving drowsy drivers. It is also estimated that nearly 1 in 5 car accidents causing serious injury are associated with excessive daytime sleepiness. Sleep apnea is also associated with memory loss, morning headaches, irritability, depression, decreased sex drive, and impaired concentration. When left untreated sleep apnea can lead to hypertension, stroke, heart attack and sudden death while sleeping. Bryan Keropian, D.D.S. calls “Cancer, AIDS, and obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), the most dangerous and destructive diseases on earth.”
