While some do not take sleeping disorders into serious consideration, they are potentially severe health symptoms that will affect you significantly. For starters, those having sleeping disorder are usually unable to experience deep sleep. This means that your brain activity and body is not getting sufficient rest. Patients with sleeping disorders experience health problems such as constant fatigue, irregular heartbeat, high blood pressure and even depression. These are all symptoms that could affect your daily activities and performance. Constant fatigue is going to affect patients’ productivity.
Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) is a condition whereby a person stops breathing repeatedly for short periods of time during sleep. OSA occurs when the muscles in the upper airway relax and causes the airway to collapse during sleep. Air is prevented from getting into the lungs and this causes breathing difficulties and snoring.
Sleep pattern get disrupted and oxygen level in the blood decreases; affecting the quality of life, work and relationships in the long run. Patients may feel constantly tired and experience low performance and productivity. Relationships could also be affected as constant snoring could be a disturbance to others as well.
