Undiagnosed Sleep Apnea

Sleep Apnea Palo Alto



Maybe you’ve heard that obstructive sleep apnea can become intrusive on your sleeping patterns and daily life, but recent studies show that sleep apnea can also infect your life where you’d least expect it… your wallet!


Studies show that sleep apnea can quickly become a prominent interruption to everyday life, but many don’t consider that the same sleep apnea can also cause a loss of productivity at work, increased workplace and motor vehicle accidents, and mild to chronic illnesses- all of which are expensive to diagnose and treat! Those who report cases of chronic, obstructive, and long-term undiagnosed sleep apnea can also show higher rates of depression, heart disease, or hypertension as compared to those who have sleep apnea maintenance regimens. The burden of undiagnosed sleep apnea weighs on millions of Americans every day, and might be creeping into your personal and professional life in small or significant ways you may have never considered.
