Putting Sleep Apnoea to Rest

Sleep apnoea occurs when one or more pauses in breathing or shallow breaths occur while a person sleeps. The pauses can last from a few seconds to minutes, and can happen more than 30 times an hour, according to the NIH. It is typical for normal breathing to start again with a loud snort or choking sound. The disorder is life-threatening. Left untreated, sleep apnoea can increase the risk of high blood pressure, heart attack, stroke, obesity and diabetes, according to the NIH. It also raises the risk, or worsens heart failure and makes irregular heartbeats more likely and increases the chance of having work-related or driving accidents.
