Understanding Sleep Apnea

Sleep apnea is a common but serious sleep disorder that can have significant health implications if left untreated. Sleep Better Montana is dedicated to helping you understand this condition, its symptoms, risks, and potential treatment options.

Understanding Sleep Apnea

Sleep apnea is a condition characterized by pauses in breathing during sleep. These pauses can last several seconds to minutes and can occur many times an hour. This interrupted sleep can lead to excessive daytime sleepiness and other health problems.

Types of Sleep Apnea

The three main types of sleep apnea include Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA), Central Sleep Apnea (CSA), and Mixed Sleep Apnea. Understanding the type and severity of your sleep apnea is crucial for developing an effective treatment plan.

Signs and Symptoms

Common symptoms of sleep apnea include loud snoring, choking or gasping during sleep, and excessive daytime sleepiness. If you or your loved ones have noticed any of these signs, it's crucial to seek professional evaluation.

Risk Factors and Complications


Sleep apnea can affect anyone at any age. However, certain risk factors increase the likelihood of developing this condition. Complications from untreated sleep apnea can range from poor quality of life to serious health conditions like heart disease and stroke.

Treatment Options


There are a variety of treatment options available for sleep apnea, ranging from lifestyle changes and oral appliances to Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) devices and surgery. Sleep Better Montana is here to guide you through these options and help you find the most effective treatment plan for your specific needs.
