Sleep Disordered Breathing (SDB)

Sleep Disordered Breathing (SDB) (also commonly know as sleep apnea) consists of brief periods during sleep in which breathing is disrupted or stops. People with SDB do not get good quality sleep and may have decreased oxygen levels during sleep. With SDB, you must wake up briefly to restore normal breathing, sometimes hundreds of times during the night. Usually there is no memory of these brief awakenings.

Most Common Symptoms:

  • Snoring
  • Waking up unrefreshed
  • Poor Sleep Quality
  • Daytime Sleepiness or Fatigue
  • Difficulty falling or staying asleep
  • Waking up with headaches
  • Difficulty with concentration and memory
  • Waking up at night to use the bathroom to urinate
  • Waking up sweating
