SAN ANTONIO - Wouldn't life be made if you could sleep throughout the night without tossing and turning?
At an alarming rate, 80% of Americans suffer from sleep apnea.
According to Premier Sleep Solutions, Sleep apnea is a medical condition in which a person has one or more pauses in breathing, or shallow breaths while he or she sleeps.
These pauses can last from a few seconds to minutes and may occur 30 times or more in a minute.
People with sleep apnea often snore.

Effects of Sleep Apnea

Treating Sleep Apnea
1. Sleep apnea can often be treated by using oral appliance therapy such as the CPAP machines (CPAP is an acronym for continuous positive airway pressure).
2. Most people who suffer from sleep apnea and snoring don’t even realize they have this problem.
3. Most medical insurance providers and Medicare cover sleep-related treatments, so a patient’s out-of-pocket costs are minimal or even non-existent.
