Sleep apnea is a common and, too often, under-diagnosed sleep disorder. It occurs when your breathing ceases numerous times while you are asleep (that’s what apnea means–the halt of breathing.) In fact, it can cause you to stop breathing 30 times an hour or more.
If you think you or a loved one may have this disorder, Capital Otolaryngology’s sleep experts strongly encourage you to make an appointment with us. Although sleep apnea is a common disorder, it can seriously affect your health.
