Are you at risk for Sleep Apnea?

 

Not everyone that snores has OSA, but virtually all people with OSA also snore.  Obstructive Sleep Apnea leads to disturbed sleep and lowered nighttime blood oxygen levels.  OSA can cause   excessive daytime sleepiness, reduce your quality of life, and adversely affect your over-all health.

 

If you answer YES to 2 or more of the following questions, you may be at risk for OSA and a consultation with Dr. Firtel would be recommended.

 

 1. Do you snore more than 3 nights a week?

 

 2. Do you snore loudly?

 

 3. Have you been told that you stop breathing and/or gasp for air while breathing?

 

 4. Do you have or have you been treated for high blood pressure?

 

 5. Do you have a neck size greater than 17” male or 15” female?

 

 6. Do you wake up un-refreshed or feel sleepy or fall asleep while reading, watching TV,
      or even driving?

 

 7. Do you have a problem concentrating or feel your memory is failing?
