Uninterrupted and restful sleep is essential for a healthy life. Yet many people suffer from chronic, treatable sleep problems that cause them fatigue, irritability, medical problems, morning headaches, lost time from work and an inability to concentrate.
Common sleep disorders include:
Very loud snoring, pauses in breathing and excessive daytime sleepiness.
The airway in the back of the throat collapses and prevents oxygen from entering the lungs and reaching the bloodstream, causing periods of apnea.
The Brain may fail to signal the chest muscles to breathe, causing periods of Apnea.

Difficulty falling or staying asleep or insufficient, disturbed, non-restorative sleep.

Sleep walking, talking or eating, bed-wetting or sleep terrors.
Advanced or delayed sleep cycles or problems adjusting to shift work.
