Some people may find their breathing is not normal at night and is causing restless, wakeful sleep. This could be the result of a medical problem known as Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA). People with OSA have repeated episodes of partial or complete obstruction of the throat (also known as the "pharynx" or "upper airway") during sleep. These episodes can have severe health implications.
If you conclude or think you may have or a risk of OSA we recommend you seek out the diagnosis and treatment of a Sleep Specialist. The Sleep Guardian may be considered as an option to help treat mild cases of OSA.
