Snoring is considered a major indicator of OSA.
Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) is recognized as repeated episodes of cessation in breathing during sleep. This results because our muscles relax during sleep and then gravity pulls the airway closed. Momentary suffocation develops producing excessive stress on the body. OSA is highly correlated with cardiovascular conditions such as hypertension, heart disease and stroke. OSA is also associated with daytime sleepiness, headaches, memory loss, mood changes, relationship disturbances and decreased libido.
