Missing a good night sleep because you or your spouse snores?

Many people don’t think of snoring as a sign of something potentially serious like sleep apnea.

People with undiagnosed sleep apnea are up to ten times more likely to have a motor vehicle accident as a result of sleepiness, sometimes with fatal results.

The engineer of a commuter train that slammed into a station going double the 10 mph speed limit, killing a woman, suffered from undiagnosed sleep apnea. If left undiagnosed the effects of sleep apnea can seriously impact your professional life.

Symptoms of sleep apnea:

  • Loud snoring, which is usually more prominent in obstructive sleep apnea
  • Abrupt awakenings accompanied by shortness of breath
  • Morning headaches
  • Excessive daytime sleepiness (hypersomnia)
  • Attention problems
  • Irritability
