Sleep Apnea Hurts HEARTS

Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is a chronic disease that afflicts nearly 30 million adults in the U.S., and most remain untreated. It puts an enormous strain on your heart by repeatedly causing oxygen levels to drop and blood pressure to surge as you sleep.

Severe Damage

Untreated, severe sleep apnea increases your risk of developing heart problems, and it more than doubles your risk of dying from heart disease.

Sleep apnea hurts HEARTS by increasing the risk of:

H – heart failure
E – elevated blood pressure
A – atrial fibrillation (A-fib)
R – resistant hypertension
T – Type 2 diabetes
S – stroke
