Dr. Young of Monmouth and Ocean County, NJ Shares an Article about Sleep Apnea's Effect on Athletes

Obstructive sleep apnea can start at an early age and sleep-disordered breathing affects athletes as well as those who are not physically fit. Patients in Monmouth and Ocean County, NJ may be surprised to learn the story of one Major League Baseball player with sleep apnea and how it impacted his athletic performance as well as his day-to-day life. He spent years dealing with symptoms such as loud chronic snoring, lapses in breathing, sudden daytime sleepiness, memory loss, unexplained weight gain, and difficulty in his athletic performance. Initially told that he may have mild sleep apnea, he finally went for an overnight sleep study and ultimately discovered the benefits of using a continuous positive airway pressure machine, or CPAP.

Dr. Young of Shore Dental SleepCare shares this New York Times story of an athlete with sleep apnea, the symptoms and side effects, and the benefits of CPAP treatment to help with breathing problems: Sleep Apnea in Sports
