Sleep apnea: Everything you need to know

In the US, between 4% and 14% men and between 2% and 5% of women suffer from sleep apnea. 

Despite being a prevalent condition, many people remain undiagnosed. We’ve compiled tips and a series of articles on sleep apnea to get you up to speed about this common condition. We’ll be looking at a wide range of relevant subjects:

Information on this syndrome, much like the ins and outs of sleep in general, may be easy to find but it’s also often inaccurate. To make sure we’re sharing fact rather than fiction with you, we’ve drawn on carefully curated sources such as peer-reviewed publications written by health professionals. We’ve also collaborated with a sleep clinic technician who was able to shed light on the more technical aspects of treatment. 

We spend a third of our lives sleeping but how much do we really know about it? How is sleep structured? What functions does it fulfil and what benefits does it provide? We’ve put together a series of articles for the general public based on the most recent scientific research. These articles aim not only to demystify sleep but also to help you find out everything you’ve always wanted to know about those hours when your body and mind seem to be offline (spoiler alert: they are anything but inactive)!
