Though it may just seem like an annoyance that keeps your partner or roommate awake at night, sleep apnea can be a serious health risk if left untreated. Patients with sleep apnea may lose airflow during their sleep due to an obstruction of their airway, which often, though not always, results in the rattling or snorting sound of snoring. Whether or not it makes an audible noise, this loss of oxygen many times a night can starve the brain of oxygen, resulting in less restful sleep, headaches and a myriad of other health concerns.
