Sleep Apnea is a condition which occurs when tissue in the back of your throat caves in in a way that blocks your airway. When this happens the amount of oxygen delivered to your internal organs – especially your brain and heart – is greatly reduced and can impact effective functioning.

Negative Health Effects of Sleep Apnea
With the rapidity that sleep apnea occurs, many people will snore loudly and even stop breathing for short periods of time. When your breathing stops with this ailment, your body is waking up repeatedly throughout the night and you may not even be aware that it has happened. That is why sleep apnea sufferers often wake up feeling completely tired and unrefreshed.
Some of the negative health effects sleep apnea can cause are:
