Sleep Disordered Breathing
Our country is sleep-deprived—desperate for restful nights, to awaken easily, and be functional throughout the day without needing a nap. The anxiety and stress of our busy world certainly make it difficult to fall asleep and stay asleep. But those dreams of being rested are even more difficult to achieve when nights are fraught with the tossing, turning, snoring, choking, or gasping for breath of oneself or a bed partner.
Millions of Americans are disturbed by either their own or their bed partner’s Sleep Disordered Breathing—caused by airway obstruction--throughout the night. And that makes it almost impossible to get any sleep at all. The most common Sleep Disordered Breathing is Obstructive Sleep Apnea.
Sleep Disordered Breathing is a serious health problem, and its first appearance is usually indicated by snoring. Although snoring is generally viewed in the United States as a minor annoyance, something to be ignored or blocked out, it can be the first sign of a problem.
Medical research has determined that Sleep Disordered Breathing is a condition that ranges in severity. Even the slightest snoring can be an indication of the onset or existence of a loss of airway potency, or muscle tone.

Call us today with any questions you may have, or if you or your bed partner snore, or have been diagnosed with Sleep Apnea, and are looking for a CPAP alternative.
