Atlanta Snoring Institute

Every year there are many people dying from co-morbidities associated with sleep apnea. Sleep apnea can be easily diagnosed and treated, and there is no reason that adults and children should suffer and die from this condition.

Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) April 01, 2014

This infographic explains the condition of sleep apnea, its serious consequences and implications, and its destructive effect on children.

As shown on the infographic, the symptoms of sleep apnea are common and apparent. Signs include snoring, pauses during snoring, gasping, and loud snorting or choking sounds.

However, the consequences of sleep apnea are alarming. Beyond the "everyday" effects of anxiety, fatigue, and dry mouth, sleep apnea is best known for causing heart diseases including cardiac arrest and hypertension. For many individuals, sleep apnea causes frequent urination, strokes, memory loss, and depression.

Equally tragic is the effect it has on children. Bright and intelligent children suffering from sleep apnea frequently experience poor school performance, hyperactivity, and angry and hostile behavior.

“Every year there are many people dying from co-morbidities associated with sleep apnea," says Dr. Howard Herman of Atlanta Snoring Institute. "Sleep apnea can be easily diagnosed and treated, and there is no reason that adults and children should suffer and die from this condition."

Sleep apnea is a major cause of fatal diseases yet remains largely undiagnosed. If you believe that you or someone you know might be suffering from sleep apnea, alert your physician immediately. The physicians at Atlanta Snoring Institute, the Southeast's premier treatment center, diagnose and treat sleep apnea in adults and children.
