obstrcutive Sleep Apnea

Sleep apnea affects over 18 million Americans and is not limited to adults. Children can suffer from obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) and the resulting fatigue just as readily as adults. OSA can increase a person’s risk for: stroke, heart attack, type 2 diabetes, auto-immune diseases, depression and hypertension. In addition, untreated sleep apnea may be responsible for poor performance in everyday activities, such as at work and school, motor vehicle crashes, and academic underachievement in children and worsening of ADHD.
