Did you know that how you sleep could be impacting your heart?
The link between oxygen drops at night and not sleeping well are clearly linked to serious medical conditions like high blood pressure and stroke. Worst of all, sleep apnea can even lead to sudden cardiac death in your sleep.
When you are sleeping, sleep apnea puts your body through multiple moments of crisis every hour.
These crises can last for seconds to minutes at a time, and can occur dozens of times every hour. The unseen wear and tear on your body and specifically your heart, is hard to imagine. It is no surprise that sleep apnea is linked to most cardiac diseases.
You have the power to not let sleep apnea impact your life.
If you are concerned that you or a loved one may have obstructive sleep apnea, you can order a home sleep test to be shipped directly to you. Take the test in the comfort of your own home and a board-certified sleep physician will review your results. Gain the peace of mind a good night’s sleep can offer!
