Sleep Apnea Affects Women in Monmouth and Ocean County
Dr. Young of Monmouth and Ocean County, NJ Offers Info on Sleep Apnea in Women
Patients in Monmouth and Ocean County, NJ often think that obstructive sleep apnea usually affects men, and particularly middle-aged men who are overweight and sedentary. In fact, sleep apnea is a health issue for women, too, who are often active and physically fit. Like men, women have symptoms that include chronic snoring, gasping or choking while sleeping, lapses in breathing, daytime sleepiness, and more. New studies show that sleep-disordered breathing poses special risks for women and is frequently undiagnosed.
