Sleep apnea syndrome affects at least 6% of the people

The sleep apnea-hypopnea syndrome affects at least 6% of the population, predominantly male. Their consequences can be very important. In the short term it can be the reason of traffic accidents because it often causes excessive daytime sleepiness making it very easy to fall asleep in situations of rest, such as driving . The same happens when important decisions should be taken as these can be wrong due to lower alertness of the person affected with the sleep apnea syndrome. If your partner or roommate notices that you snore a lot and from time to time you stop breathing while sleeping it is likely that you suffer from this disorder. You should visit your doctor to study your case since it is likely that it can be treated successfully, and you could solve the whole problem.
