Screening for Sleep Apnea [INFOGRAPHIC]

Millions of people suffer from sleep apnea, and some don’t even know that they have it. This sleep disorder is characterized by the repeated cessation of breathing during sleep. Some of the symptoms include loud snoring, excessive daytime sleepiness, insomnia, and problems focusing. It’s important to have sleep apnea diagnosed because it can lead to life-threatening complications if left untreated. By using the Appnea app from Zeeba Sleep Center, the STOP-BANG Questionnaire, and the Epworth Sleepiness Scale, you can assess your risk for sleep apnea at home. Appnea even features sleep recording capabilities and a risk assessment report. If the results of the Appnea risk assessment indicate that you could have sleep apnea, schedule an appointment with Zeeba Sleep Center in Las Vegas for a full evaluation right away.
