Sleep Apnea Evaluation
The Sleep Apnea Evaluation Quiz is an important tool designed to both quickly and easily determine if a sleep disorder could possibly be present or be a factor in your overall health and well being.
A person who stops breathing for 10 seconds up to 30 times per night is considered to be a sleep apnea sufferer. Sleep apnea is an extremely serious condition that causes a person to wake up constantly throughout the night from respiratory disturbances. Snoring may be indicative of sleep apnea, which can put a great strain on the cardiovascular system. Hypertension (high blood pressure, eventually renal failure), diabetes, heart failure and stroke are very common in people who suffer from sleep apnea. This condition is serious and should not be left untreated.
