Sleep apnea is disordered breathing.  There is more than one type of sleep apnea.  Statistics from a study in 1993 called the Wisconsin Sleep Cohort Study found that sleep apnea is prevalent in 4% of middle-aged men and 2 % of middle-aged women. Other later studies have shown that First World countries have higher prevalence numbers.  Numbers as high as 20% of men and 10% of women may be affected.   

This is the fourth course in the Breathing Essentials Series.  Learn the different types of sleep apnea.  Gain knowledge of the risk factors and symptoms that exist with sleep apnea and understand the importance of getting the correct treatment.  Practice basic exercises that can be done to improve the strength of the tongue and airway dilators.  This course is evidence-based and will provide the latest research that is available on the statistics, risks, symptoms, and treatments for sleep apnea.
