Snoring can be caused by an incomplete obstruction of the upper airway, and can actually be hazardous to your health. Many snorers have complete obstruction (apnea) periodically throughout the night. When this occurs, oxygen in the blood falls, the heart can beat irregularly and sleeping is interrupted. Untreated sleep apnea can cause debilitating sleepiness, increased chance of driving accidents and may lead to health problems including heart failure. If you suspect sleep apnea, contact your physician or the Queen’s Sleep Center.

A sleep study can provide a detailed evaluation to determine if you have a sleep disorder. Just as an x-ray uncovers a broken bone, a sleep study can uncover a problem in your sleep patterns. If you do have a sleep disorder, it is important to be diagnosed and treated. Sleep disorders can contribute to other diseases and conditions such as stroke, heart attack, high blood pressure, and depression.
A common sleep-related breathing disorder, Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA), is caused by the airway closing and preventing the flow of air into the lungs. Without effective treatment, OSA is a risk to developing a number of serious health conditions. Because of excessive daytime sleepiness that exists with OSA, drivers who have untreated OSA can become a hazard to themselves and others while on the road. The goal of being tested, diagnosed, and treated for a sleep disorder is to help you realize a better quality of sleep and an enhanced quality of life.
