Some people dream of a good night’s sleep

Maybe you binge-watched too much Netflix. Or, the neighbor's dog started barking at 4:00am. Perhaps you couldn't stop thinking about work. We've all been there. We know what the effects of a poor night's sleep feel like. Fortunately, for most of us, a bad night's sleep is usually followed by a deep, restful, sweet dreams kind of slumber. But what if it wasn't? What if every night's sleep was a bad night's sleep? And what if it wasn't just bad, but dangerous? This is what life is like for people suffering from Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA).

Contrary to what many people think, OSA is not a minor nuisance. It doesn't just mean you're a loud snorer. In fact, not everyone who snores has sleep apnea. OSA is a life-damaging and, in some cases, life-shortening condition. According to MedLine Plus, a person with OSA can stop breathing 30 times or more - per hour - every night. And, as any doctor will tell you, when you stop breathing, regardless of the duration, it's cause for concern. And, it's a very common concern:

About 25 million Americans suffer from varying degrees of OSA

OSA can affect men and women of all ages, races, and lifestyles

1 in 4 middle-aged men has OSA

80% of people with moderate and severe OSA go undiagnosed

While it's hard to overlook the potential physical risks associated with OSA, what many people don't think about is how it poses a risk to your quality of life.

Imagine waking up every morning having to fight to stay awake at work. Being too tired to go grocery shopping, or even walk the dog. The number of car accidents caused by drivers suffering from sleep apnea are - to put it mildly - eye opening.

Sleep apnea doesn't just rob you of sleep. In many ways, it robs you of your life.
