What Is Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA)?

OSA is a sleep disorder in which your muscles in your palate and tongue relax during sleep, causing your airway to narrow or close. This leads to decreased oxygen saturation and short term awakenings (many times not perceived) that decrease the overall quality of sleep.

Snoring and Mild-Moderate Sleep Apnea can lead to:

  • Fatigue
  • Irritability
  • Poor concentration
  • Bed wetting
  • Hypertension
  • Obesity

Snoring and Severe Sleep Apnea can lead to:

  • Heart attack
  • Stroke
  • Motor vehicle accident
  • Obesity
  • Diabetes
  • Premature death

Some key facts about OSA:

  • It affects males more than females
  • Up to 18 million Americans (1 in 50, or 6.6%) have OSA (with up to 500,000 undiagnosed)
  • Individuals with OSA are more than 6 times more likely to die in a motor vehicle accident caused by tired driving
  • Bed-mates of OSA patients lose up to 1 hour of sleep per night
  • 38,000 deaths a year linked to OSA related heart disease

Severe snoring often goes hand-in-hand with sleep apnea and can be a sign of a much more serious condition. If you suffer from snoring or believe you may have snoring and or undiagnosed OSA, or if your current OSA treatments have failed to provide the relief you need, Dr. Mandel and his team of experts can provide a thorough evaluation of your condition and recommend a custom-tailored treatment plan based on your medical history, anatomic makeup, and results. You may qualify for a minimally invasive in-office procedure which can be performed in a single office visit with minimal downtime.
