FAQ - What Are The Risks Of Not Treating Sleep Apnea?
Welcome to Sleepwell Longview! Sleep apnea occurs when your breathing airway is blocked during sleep, keeping your body from getting the oxygen it needs. Because sleep is such an important part of your health, letting sleep apnea go unchecked can have far ranging and often deadly consequences. Sleep apnea has been tied to a wide variety of disorders such as heart attacks, stroke, diabetes, high blood pressure and more. If you suspect that you or your partner may have difficulty breathing during sleep, it's important to take a sleep test to make sure it isn't because of sleep apnea. Schedule your visit today.
