Sleep Apnea—
  Not Just A
Sleep Disorder
  Sleep apnea is a sleep
  disorder whereby the
 sleeper stops breathing
several times an hour, all
       night long.
If you have sleep problems that involve
 waking up frequently during the night
gasping, you may have a sleep problem.
Sleeping disorders are
more problematic than
     you realize.
Sleeping disorders can
 lead to heart attacks,
strokes, and a host of
other life threatening
   health problems.
 Talking with your family
   doctor will get you a
much needed referral to a
sleep disorder specialist.
 Sleep disorder doctors are
specially trained to uncover
      how you sleep.
     Your doctor
 determines if other
    sleep aids like
 medicine need to be
 added for you to get
the most restful sleep
     you can get.
