Are you constantly tired? Do you snore? Neither is normal.
If you feel constantly tired during the day or have been told you snore, it’s important to talk to your doctor about sleep apnea. Sleep apnea affects 1 in 5 Americans and 85% are believed to be undiagnosed.1
Treatment may help
Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) treatment gently delivers pressurized air through a comfortable mask chosen by the patient. This process ensures the airway remains open in order to prevent sleep apnea.
It has been shown to:
- Allow users to get a higher quality night’s rest
- Reduce the symptoms associated with sleep apnea
- Allow users to take back control of their lives
Sleep apnea is often found in people who have other conditions.
- Up to 73% of patients with stable heart failure also have sleep apnea.2
- Among people with recent strokes, more than 70% had sleep apnea.3
High Blood Pressure
- 43% of patients with mild sleep apnea and 69% or patients with severe sleep apnea have high blood pressure.4
Type 2 Diabetes
- Sleep apnea has been found in nearly half of people with type 2 diabetes.5
Ask your doctor about sleep apnea and choose Baker Medical, Inc. as your CPAP provider.
