About The Webinar

The prevalence of sleep apnea has been increasing steadily, with recent estimates suggesting that it affects up to 25% of middle aged men and 9% of women. This represents a considerable growth rate of 14–55% over the past 20 years.

Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is a serious breathing disorder that occurs when the upper airway partially or completely obstructs while sleeping resulting in oxygen deprivation.

Undiagnosed and untreated sleep apnea can lead to conditions such as high blood pressure, coronary artery disease, diabetes, congestive heart failure, depression, and stroke. 

People with sleep apnea typically snore and often feel sleepy, fatigued, or have trouble concentrating. Often people with sleep apnea don’t even realize how disrupted their sleep is and it is important to treat these occurrences with the seriousness they deserve.
