Did You Know?

One out of 4 people who suffer from sleep disorders may experience:

  • Depression
  • Fatigue or daytime drowsiness
  • Irritability
  • Lost productivity
  • More frequent illnesses
  • Reduced attention, concentration and memory
  • Workplace accidents or car crashes from falling asleep on the job or behind the wheel

Snoring is an early warning signal. Loud snoring may be a signal that something is seriously wrong with breathing during sleep. Snoring indicates the airway is not fully open, and the noise of snoring comes from the effort to force air through a narrowed passageway.

For estimated 5 in 100 people -- typically overweight, middle-aged men -- snoring is the first indication of a potentially life-threatening sleep disorder called sleep apnea.
