Why Choose Florida Hospital?
Sleep apnea is generally associated with snoring, though common among the American population, is a chronic sleep disorder that is accompanied by brief periods of breathing interruption. Two types of sleep apnea affect the sleeping state. Obstructive sleep apnea is directed toward the general populous. However, central sleep apnea is an advanced condition that impairs the breathing control center and may cause a potentially life-threatening emergency if the airway is compromised during the normal sleep cycle. Doctors at Florida Hospital are highly skilled to assess a sleep disorder, can determine whether sleep apnea is affecting an individual, and will explain what treatment options may be available to improve breathing while sleeping. Our techniques have helped many sleep apnea sufferers restore their normal sleeping patterns to promote the best quality of sleep. If sleep apnea causes a sudden respiratory issue, dial 9-1-1 immediately.
