What is Sleep Apnea?
Sleep apnea is a chronic disorder characterized by shallow or interrupted breathing during sleep. These pauses can last from several seconds to minutes and can occur multiple times during the night – sometimes as much as 30 times an hour. Normal breathing often starts up again with a loud snort or choking sound. This interruption moves a patient from deep to light sleep.
At Hudson Valley Sleep Solutions, our team focuses on providing non-surgical solutions to obstructive sleep apnea. For more serious cases requiring surgical intervention, we refer patients to a trusted network of oral surgeons.
