What is sleep apnea?

Sleep apnea occurs when a person’s breathing is repeatedly interrupted during sleep, leading to a drop in their blood oxygen level, sleep disruption, and longer-term health risks. If these breathing disruptions most commonly occur when you are sleeping on your back, then it is known as positional obstructive sleep apnea (POSA).

Research shows that a great numberof those diagnosed with mild to moderate sleep apnea are actually suffering from POSA. The good news is that by using therapy that helps you avoid sleeping on your back, you can dramatically reduce these disruptions. Lunoa SPT does exactly that. It delivers gentle vibrations to encourageou sleep on your side, thereby avoiding the sleep disurptions you suffered before.

Symptoms of sleep apnea

Snoring & gasping

Loud and persistant snorings one of the most frequently cited symptoms of sleep apnea. It is often accompanied by episodes of waking, choking or gasping for air.

Daytime sleepiness

Sleep apnea can interrupt sleep multiple times a night, which means you won’t be getting the deep, refreshing sleep you need. This may result in daytime sleepiness, irritability and lack of energy.

Trouble thinking

With frequent disruption to sleep and oxygen level drops, your body will not be getting the rest it needs. This can lead to daytime memory problems and forgetfulness, trouble concentrating and the impairment of attention.

Relationship strain

It isn’t just those with sleep apnea who suffer from disrupted sleep, their bed partners are affected too. The disturbed sleep of both, with the associated symptoms can put a huge strain on relationships.
