A sleep disorder is considered when it happens to any person of any age. This means that snoring, which is a common but often misunderstood sleeping problem can be classified as sleep apnea. It is the most severe case of snoring problems. This could become a serious condition since literally, apnea means “to lose breath” or “without breath”. When a person has an apnea problem, what happens while he sleeps is that he tends to lose his breath alternately.

The reason why every snorer should watch out for this disorder is because the very thought of “missing breaths” for every 10 seconds could lead to a permanent absence of breath. Although it isn’t considered fatal as this point, lack of overall blood oxygen in the body could lead to high carbon dioxide which could eventually cause stroke, brain damage and heart disease.

For one thing, sleep apnea shouldn’t be taken lightly on young children because it’s not a disorder occurring only during adolescence. The thing is, it doesn’t pick its victim and this means your child as young as a toddler could experience sleep apnea. Sleep apnea’s common symptoms are restlessness while sleeping and loud snoring. When awake, symptoms like morning headaches, irritability, mood change, anxiety, increased heart rate, trouble in concentrating and heavy sweating are all but minor signs of sleep apnea.

However, you might want to watch out for the snoring itself done while the person is asleep. A sure sign of sleep apnea is when the snorer stops snoring just at the same time when the body tries to breathe. This occurrence is followed by a deep gasp once the sound made by snoring and breathing resumes.

If sleep apnea is left untreated, it could cause all the serious problems in a person’s body. The sickness mentioned above could possibly occur and the worst case is when pressures forced on the lungs could affect the right side of the heart which can eventually turn out as a congestive heart failure.
