It is estimated that 22 million Americans suffer from sleep apnea, with 80 percent of the cases of moderate and severe obstructive sleep apnea undiagnosed. If left untreated, Sleep Apnea can lead to high blood pressure, chronic heart failure, atrial fibrillation, stroke, and other cardiovascular problems.
It is associated with type 2 diabetes, weight gain and depression; and is a factor in many traffic accidents and accidents with heavy machinery. This is due to the persistent drowsiness suffered by many OSA patients before the disease is recognized and treated.
