Sleep apnea is a problem that many people face. Most of these people really don’t even know that they suffer from this problem. Generally it is someone else who has trouble sleeping that confronts the person who has sleep apnea. Sleep apnea is caused by a build up of carbon dioxide in the body and this can be very dangerous.
Understanding Sleep Apnea
Sleep apnea can be treated by the use of appliances. People who have sleep apnea usually suffer from other symptoms like snoring.During sleep muscles tend to relax and this can cause choking of the throat and blocks breathing. Carbon dioxide then can build up and then the brain wakes up telling the person to breathe. People with sleep apnea can have morning headaches, tiredness and even lack of concentration as symptoms.

Sleep apnea can be accompanied by a number of health problems including high blood pressure, increased risk of heart attack. This is because the heart pumps faster when there is less oxygen which puts pressure on the heart resulting in a number of cardiovascular disorders. The main problem with sleep apnea is that it cannot be detected easily. The person suffering from sleep apnea also do not realize that they are having difficulty in snoring.
There are different types of sleep apnea, obstructive sleep apnea, central sleep apnea and complex sleep apnea. Of these three types of sleep apnea the obstructive sleep apnea is the most common type. When the soft tissue at the back of the throat becomes relaxed during sleep it collapses on the throat blocking the air passage and this result in loud snores. Thus the otherwise ignorable symptoms of sleep apnea should never be ignored and must be treated at an early stage before it gives way to other health problems.
