Obstructive sleep apnea is common, affecting an estimated 3-7% of adult men and 2-5% of adult women in the general population.  Prevalence rates are increasing and many people with sleep apnea are undiagnosed. Common symptoms include habitual loud snoring, poor quality sleep, and chronic daytime tiredness.  Lecture attendees will leave with a better understanding of what sleep apnea is/is not, and treatment options that are currently available, including CPAP machines.  If you or someone you care about has symptoms of or has been diagnosed with sleep apnea, this lecture is for you.
