Obstructive sleep apnea, also known as OSA, is a sleep disorder in which the person stops breathing for at least 10 seconds each hour during sleep. It is caused by relaxation of the throat muscles – the soft tissue in the back of the throat collapses and closes, resulting in blocked airways.

Consequences if OSA is left untreated can include: 

* Increased Accident Risk

* Increased Cancer Risk

* Risk Factor for Diabetes

* Increased Stroke Risk

* Decreased Libido

* Linked to Pregnancy Complications

* Increased Heart Risk

* Increased Depression Risk
