Getting a good night’s rest is not easy for everyone. For over 20 million Americans, sleep apnea keeps them awake at night. This is a sleep disorder that causes numerous pauses in breathing frequently throughout the night due to your airways collapsing. This creates an obstruction that limits your airflow.
