Snoring and Sleep Apnea
Sleep Well, Feel BetterBook - 2000
Snoring is no joke! Snoring is the most common sign of sleep apnea, a potentially fatal sleep disorder that affects approximately 20 million Americans. It is associated with heart disease, high blood pressure, strokes, and premature death, and is a common cause of driving accidents, yet it frequently goes undiagnosed. Snoring and Sleep Apnea is for people who have -- or suspect that they have -- sleep apnea. It is also written for their bed partners, families, and friends, and for health care professionals involved in sleep apnea management. The book provides answers to key questions, written in easy-to-understand terms, as well as the pros and cons of specific treatments. This extensively revised and updated third edition includes information on new surgical techniques, the treatment of children with snoring and sleep apnea problems, and new oral appliances for relief of snoring and sleep apnea.
