While just about everyone knows someone who snores, few understand that snoring can be an indication of a serious health problem.  Snoring is a common symptom of sleep apnea, a stoppage of breathing during sleep.  Every apnea or ‘event’ of decreased oxygen intake, causes the brain to send a signal to rouse the body in an effort to resume breathing.  This results in a low quality of sleep, producing daytime fatigue, irritability, and a whole host of other maladies.  Gone untreated, sleep apnea may contribute to high blood pressure, obesity, and cardiovascular disease.

The topic of sleep apnea has created much buzz in the public as of late. It has been a frequently discussed on many health forums and media outlets. The full color pamphlet, complete with graphics to illustrate this important message, aims to addresses a whole host of questions surrounding this condition.
