Dr. Young of Monmouth and Ocean Counties Shares Details on How Sleep Apnea Affects Blood Pressure
Millions of Americans have obstructive sleep apnea and are well aware of the impact it has on the amount and quality of their sleep and the aggravating symptoms, such as snoring, that it brings. Studies have shown that too little sleep also increases the risk of a number of dangerous medical conditions, as well. Among them is high blood pressure, which can be caused by low oxygen levels from obstructed breathing. High blood pressure, in turn, can significantly increase the chance of heart disease and stroke.
