Sleep Apnea

Sleep Apnea (OSA) Bakersfield

Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is a life-threatening condition in which breathing is briefly and repeatedly interrupted during sleep. According to the National Institutes of Health an estimated 12 million Americans have sleep apnea. Since OSA occurs during sleep, most people who have it are not aware of it. Symptoms include snoring, daytime sleepiness and chronic exhaustion.


What are the symptoms of Sleep Apnea?

  • Excessive daytime sleepiness
  • Frequent episodes of obstructed breathing during sleep. Often times the patient is unaware of this symptom.

Sleep apnea often goes undiagnosed.

Your physician will not typically detect the condition during routine office visits nor with a blood test. The first person to notice signs if sleep apnea is often a bed partner or family member.

Most common type of sleep apnea

Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is the most common condition. With OSA the airway collapses or becomes blocked during sleep. This causes breathing pauses or shallow breathing.

The risks of undiagnosed OSA include:

  • heart attack, stroke
  • irregular heartbeat
  • high blood pressure
  • heart disease and
  • decreased libido
