If you’ve been told you snore and/or stop breathing during sleep, you might be suffering from sleep apnea. Millions of people are impacted by this upper airway condition. Symptoms can include loud snoring and waking up choking or gasping. Daytime symptoms can include sleepiness, memory trouble or mood changes.
A free, informative seminar on the signs and symptoms of sleep apnea will take place Wed., March 20, from 6 to 7:30 p.m. at Samaritan Albany General Hospital in the third floor conference room. This event is part of the Healthy Minds, Healthy Bodies seminar series presented by Samaritan Health Services.
Join Diana Barron, MD, a sleep medicine specialist with The Corvallis Clinic Sleep Medicine Department and the Samaritan Sleep Medicine Program, as she explains how this common sleep disorder can be successfully treated.
Getting the proper amount and quality of sleep is critical to your health: lack of sleep is related to diabetes, heart disease, obesity and depression.
Refreshments and giveaways will be available.
