Thanks to progress in the growing field of sleep medicine, those suffering from sleep apnea can now look forward to a future filled with deep, restful sleep. CPAP devices are the most regularly used treatment options for people encountering breathing problems, most notably of which is obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). Sufferers of OSA experience cessations in their breathing in which obstructions in the airway cause them to cease breathing for a few seconds at a time throughout the night. Depending on the severity of one's sleep apnea, sufferers may undergo anywhere from 5 to 100 interruptions per hour in their breathing! These interruptions can lead to a variety of health problems ranging from chronic daytime drowsiness and restless sleep to heart disease and stroke.
