What Does Sleep Apnea Do to the Body?
If you or a bed partner suffer from constant snoring during rest, you may exhibit symptoms of sleep apnea. Sleep apnea occurs when the muscles in the throat relax during sleep, collapsing the airway and cutting off oxygen to the brain. A lack of oxygen causes the brain to jolt the body awake so breathing can continue as normal. For many patients with sleep apnea, this cycle of your airway collapsing, waking, and falling back to sleep can occur dozens of times each hour throughout the night.
These frequent disruptions to your nightly sleep pattern prevent you from receiving the necessary amount of REM sleep your body needs to feel fully rested the next day. Because the sleep you did receive was inadequate, sleep apnea is likely to make you feel tired and sluggish.
What to Expect at Your Sleep Apnea Consultation
If you suspect you or your child struggles with sleep apnea, Dr. Lawrence will happily meet with you for a consultation. During this visit, he’ll review your medical history and provide a thorough physical exam, examining you for physical signs of sleep apnea like dry mouth or tightness in the jaw.
Dr. Lawrence will typically recommend an at-home sleep study so he can obtain more information to create your customized treatment plan. These comfortable tests can be conducted in the comfort of your own bed, and won’t disturb you or your partner throughout the night as the equipment gathers data about your nighttime breathing.
