An apnea is a cessation in breathing that lasts for about 10 seconds. Those who suffer from sleep apnea can experience hundreds of apneas throughout the night without even knowing they’ve occurred. Sleep apnea sufferers may also wake up gasping for breath or snore loud and frequently. When left untreated, sleep apnea has been linked to many serious health disorders, including:
- High blood pressure
- Heart failure
