Sleep Apnea Discussed on Mayo Clinic Radio

If you haven’t considered holding a pillow over your sleep partner’s snoring face, you’re either a saint or a liar.

Snoring is often more than simply irritating to those around you (or rude, if you happen to be in church). It is oftentimes a symptom of sleep apnea. We have heard more and more about sleep apnea in the last two decades as the disorder has become more prevelent. Linked to an obese lifestyle, sleep apnea can lead to unrestful sleep (and therefore unrestoritive sleep) all the way to death.

Last week, the Mayo Clinic News Network did a plain-speaking and highly informative segment on their Radio Hour program about sleap apnea – from causes to symptoms and treatment.

It’s definitely worth a listen!
