Do you suffer from OSA?
OSA has been linked to excessive tiredness, depression and reduced resistance to infection. When left untreated OSA can increase the risk of heart attack, hypertension, stroke, high blood pressure, diabetes, colds and even death. It can have a significant impact on quality of life, placing unnecessary strain on relationships between bed partners, family and the work place. If you have OSA or display symptoms of OSA such as loud snoring, excessive daytime sleepiness, fatigue, and witnessed apneas, it is essential that you seek the right treatment option.
