Do you have these symptoms?
Do you snore?

If you answered yes to two or more of these questions, you may be experiencing Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA).
OSA and other sleep disorders are diagnosed at Yampa Valley Medical Center’s Sleep Study Center. Effective treatments can be recommended by a physician.
OSA is a condition in which the airway collapses during sleep, causing breathing to stop temporarily. This can happen frequently during a single night’s sleep. Due to the decrease in oxygen, a person who has OSA may have difficulty concentrating and can experience depression, irritability or memory loss.
Additionally, someone who suffers from undiagnosed and untreated OSA can be at increased risk for stroke, heart disease, heart attack, high blood pressure, and accidents caused by fatigue.
