Can Sleep Apnea KILL me?
A healthy body will force you to wake you up when having breathing problems during sleep. But when breathing problems and lack of oxygen during sleep have become part of your health condition, a multitude of complications like disruptive circadian rhythms, imbalanced body and brain chemistry, and a disturbed respiratory function, can end your life indeed.
Healthy people do not suffocate in their sleep. Sleep apnea can speed up the heart rate, increase blood pressure, and more – which can all contribute to an unexpected departure from this planet, when you don’t treat it.
What is Sleep Apnea?
Sleep apnea is a disorder in which breathing repeatedly stops and starts through the night. Because the throat muscles relax, your airways are narrowed or closed, which can lower the oxygen level in your blood. Sleep apnea causes serious risks for your short and long term health including high blood pressure and heart problems, strokes, Type 2 diabetes, and liver problems.
Most people who have sleep apnea are not aware that they suffer from interrupted sleep. It is often a partner who alerts them to their gasping episodes or snoring. But the lack of quality sleep causes fatigue during the day, possibly headaches and even chronic depression and anxiety.
What are the different types of sleep apnea?
There are several types of sleep apnea. The most common one is obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) which occurs when the throat muscles relax. When your airway becomes narrowed or blocked, you might wake up with a snort, or gasp and this can occur many times an hour throughout the night without you knowing. No wonder you feel tired in the morning as you haven’t been able to reach a deep phase of sleep!
Central sleep apnea is when your brain fails to transmit signals to your breathing muscles, and you can literally stop breathing for short stretches. Sleep apnea results in more than just the loss of your vital sleep because it often leads to snoring which will negatively affect your partner’s sleep.

How to treat Sleep Apnea?
Today, oral appliances are used to treat obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). An oral appliance (or oral device) pushes the tongue and jaw forward, which will make the airway larger and improves airflow. Oral appliances also reduces the possibility that tongue tissue will block the airway when you breathe in. SkyPointe Dental provides effective oral appliances in Calgary NE.
