Sleep apnea is the repeated interruption of breathing during sleep due to lack of oxygen, affecting approximately 13% of men and 6% of women in the United States.
The combination of disturbed sleep and lack of oxygen makes it difficult for the heart of the patient to control the pressure. This fact can cause hypertension, cardiovascular disease, heart attacks, strokes and type 2 diabetes.
