What you need to know about sleep apnea 

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 may occur 30 times or more in a minute.

"Sleep apnea can cause diabetes, high blood pressure and even lead to a stroke," said Veronica Morillos, a sleep technician at The Center for Sleep Apnea & Snoring.

Sleep apnea can lead to serious health problems, including heart disorders and depression.

Most medical insurance providers and Medicare cover sleep-related treatments.
