Not getting enough deep sleep can cause impairments with your memory, poor work performance and a decreased sex drive. Sleep apnea can also lead to more serious conditions, including high blood pressure, irregular heart beat or heart failure, obesity, and diabetes. There are several ways to treat sleep apnea, depending on its severity. Those with severe sleep apnea may benefit from wearing a mask attached to a machine that helps regulate their breathing. With milder sleep apnea and snoring, often an anti-snoring device can be effective in helping you get a better night’s sleep.
