Sleep apnea, more common than we think

The syndrome of Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) affects an estimated 20 % of the population, which represents approximately one in five adults. This group is often compared to the people suffering from asthma, high blood pressure and diabetes of type 2. Unfortunately, 8 out of 10 apneic people are unaware of their condition. Are you one of them?

What is sleep apnea ?

Sleep apnea is defined as being the most common respiratory disorder. It is characterized by a complete or partial obstruction of the upper airway during your sleep. Breathing pauses can last from 10 to 30 seconds, sometimes more. This can results in several awakenings during the night, depriving you of a restful sleep. Long breathing pauses in your sleep can put your life in danger and most people do not know that the best witness is often the partner. This is a serious health problem that can be easily detectable and treatable. Talk to your doctor!
