Left untreated, sleep apnea can lead to:
If you snore in any position, (side, back or stomach) then you need to see your physician about a referral to a sleep specialist.
The victim of sleep apnea is usually unaware of the problem, but the pauses in breathing are very alarming to the bed partner. A pattern of snoring, interrupted by silence, then gasps are indications that breathing has stopped and then started again.In severe cases, this can occur hundreds of times a night.
Children can also have sleep apnea. Snoring is not normal in a child and needs to be reported to your doctor. Enlarged tonsils or obesity can contribute to sleep apnea in children.
Doctors diagnose sleep apnea based on your medical and family histories, a physical exam, and sleep study results. You may be asked to take a sleep study to determine if you are experiencing sleep apnea. Sleep studies can be done at the Bryan Sleep Center or through a Home Sleep Test.
There are different kinds of sleep studies. If your doctor thinks you have sleep apnea, he or she may recommend a polysomnogram (poly-SOM-no-gram; also called a PSG) or a home-based portable monitor.
Sleep apnea is medically treatable. If you are diagnosed with sleep apnea, your sleep specialist will determine your medical treatment plan.
