Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) is a serious condition that can put your heart health at risk. With OSA, your upper airway collapses as many as 50 to 100 times an hour throughout the night, causing your breathing to stop. As your body struggles to breathe, you may awaken and not know it, leading to fatigue throughout the day. OSA also prevents air from entering and exiting the lungs. This causes your heart to work harder, which poses serious risks to your heart health.
At St.Vincent Heart Center of Indiana, the Sleep Center of Indiana provides diagnosis, advanced treatment, and expert follow-up care from cardiologists of St.Vincent Medical Group. The Sleep Center team works together to protect the heart from the debilitating sleep disorders.
If you snore, gasp for air when sleeping, or wake up frequently during the night… if you have morning headaches, feel sleepy during the day, or have trouble concentrating, your heart health could be at risk.
