Obstructive Sleep Apnea – Are you SNORING?

One of our team members came to me this week with a very sad story – her childhood friend died in her sleep last week; she was just 29 years old. The cause of death? Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). Essentially she suffocated in her sleep. My heart breaks for this young girl and her family. This story makes me even more passionate about our decision to treat OSA in our practice.
