Millions of people suffer from sleep apnea, a constriction of the airway from collapsing throat tissues and/or the tongue blocking the airway during sleep.

Even though sleep apnea is treatable, it often goes unrecognized, which can be dangerous and detrimental to your health, making it vital to visit your Sleep Apnea expert if you suspect that you or a loved one might have sleep apnea, or sleep disordered breathing (SDB).
