Facts about Sleep Apnea:

How can you tell if someone has Sleep Apnea?

Who Gets Sleep Apnea?

Although many people haven’t heard of Sleep Apnea, it is a common condition affecting up to 10% of the population to some degree. It can also affect people at any age—from newborn babies through to adults of either sex.

The most common treatment is Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP). CPAP doesn’t involve drugs or surgery and is effective immediately. It is now recommended by the majority of doctors worldwide and is bringing relief to many thousands of sufferers.

How Does CPAP Work?

A CPAP init delivers lightly pressurized air through a small nasal mask. This pressure acts like an "air splint" to keep the upper airway open and prevent apneas. You will experience almost immediate relief with CPAP treatment.
