Sleep Apnea is serious. Wake Up!

What is Sleep Apnea?

 

Sleep Apnea (or Sleep Apnoea) is a condition where a person's breathing is interrupted during sleep for several seconds, multiple times a night. As a result, the oxygen supply in the blood and subsequently to the brain, declines. This can lead to a disruption of normal bodily functions and pave the way for serious and life threatening conditions.
