With untreated sleep apnea, your sleep is is continually interrupted, often dozens of times per hour as your body struggles to breathe. You’re unable to get enough restorative rest for mental and physical healing, so you wake up feeling tired, achy, and possibly even moody.
Some patients immediately feel increased energy levels with their CPAP therapy, while others notice a difference in just a couple of weeks.
Frequently Asked Questions
How Do I Know if I Have Obstructive Sleep Apnea?
Loud snoring is often the first clue for many people who are later diagnosed with sleep apnea, though there are many other warning signs. When airway muscles relax during sleep, they may partially collapse and block the flow of air in and out of your lungs. Snoring is often the result, as airflow becomes strained and causes airway muscles to vibrate on the exhale and inhale.
While you may suspect you have sleep apnea, only a healthcare provider can evaluate your symptoms, health history, and risk factors and make an official diagnosis.
Sleep apnea is a very common sleep disorder, but if left untreated it can be serious. If you experience sleep apnea symptoms frequently, you should consult with your doctor.
You’ll need a prescription to undergo any kind of test for sleep apnea, and there are several testing methods available, including an in-lab sleep study and some at-home options.
How Is Obstructive Sleep Apnea Treated?
The most common treatment for OSA is CPAP therapy. CPAP stands for continuous positive airway pressure and it’s considered the gold standard in care for this particular sleep disorder.
With untreated OSA, the upper airways collapse during the night due to excess weight of the muscles around the throat or certain anatomical features that make it difficult to sustain unobstructed breathing. CPAP therapy is used to combat these anatomical blockages and ensure you get the oxygen (and uninterrupted sleep) your body needs to stay healthy.
Here’s how it works. A CPAP machine is used to generate the air pressure needed to keep your upper airways open all night. The air pressure flows through a tube and it’s administered through a CPAP mask that is secured over your mouth and nose. This airway pressure basically acts like a stint, forcing your airways open so you can maintain your normal breathing patterns all night.
Treating sleep apnea is critical for your health because it not only impacts your sleep quality and leaves you feeling tired during the day, but it also can increase your risk for multiple health conditions. These include heart disease, diabetes, obesity, depression, and more.

The Comforts of Home
For most people, spending the night in a strange place to undergo a polysomnograpy is uncomfortable, especially with all of the cords and monitors attached. It may be difficult to sleep as you normally would in such an environment.
