Snore at night? This assessment can help determine if you have sleep apnea.
Do you have trouble sleeping at night?
If you have trouble sleeping, or if you or your partner snore loudly, you may have a sleep disorder.
To help people with sleep issues, the Center for Sleep Apnea and Snoring answers five frequently asked questions about sleep apnea.
Question n ° 1: Is sleep apnea common? Can people have sleep apnea without knowing it?
According to the Center for Sleep Apnea and Snoring, more than 18 million Americans are affected by sleep apnea. In addition, a large percentage of the centre’s patients do not actually snore, the experts said.
Question n ° 2: Can Sleep Apnea Seriously Affect Your Health?
Sleep apnea can strain vital organs and can really affect your entire quality of life, the center said.
Question n ° 3: Do drugs and alcohol make sleep apnea problems worse?
Alcohol and caffeine shouldn’t be consumed a few hours before bedtime, according to the center.
Question n ° 4: Can we treat sleep apnea?
Once the sleep assessment has been carried out, the center offers its patients oral therapy with a device that is placed in your mouth by a specialist. The oral appliance will clear your lungs so you can get the right airflow and stop snoring while sleeping, the center said.
Question n ° 5: Does insurance help cover sleep apnea treatments?
Many insurances, including Medicare and PPOs, cover oral appliance therapy.
