Cabinet Peaks' Sleep Center is a AASM accredited sleep-related, breathing disorder laboratory.
It is estimated that 40 million Americans suffer from chronic sleep disorders, and an additional 20-30 million are affected by intermittent sleep-related problems. What is shocking is that an overwhelming majority of sleep disorders remain undiagnosed and untreated.
An occasional bad night's sleep is no cause for concerns, but a continued sleep disorder can affect your health and the quality of your waking hours. There are more than 84 disorders related to sleep that can lead to a lower quality of life and diminished health. Here are some of the more common sleep disorders.
Sleep Disorders: What are they and what are their symptoms?
Obstructive Sleep Apnea
Breathing pauses from a few seconds to a minute or more throughout the night. Loud snoring, daytime sleepiness, and even high blood pressure, heart failure, and stroke are associated with this disorder.
Symptoms can include excessive daytime sleepiness, uncontrollable daytime sleep attacks, sudden loss of muscle tone, vivid hallucinations during sleep onset, and sleep paralysis.
