What Is Obstructive Sleep Apnea?
(http://ow.ly/3FZn30mYEbZ)

Obstructive sleep apnea, or OSA, is a medical condition that occurs during sleep. When individuals with OSA are sleeping, the soft palate and uvula at the back of the throat relax, effectively blocking airflow. When this occurs, you stop breathing, and in turn, wake up. Although it can be difficult knowing whether or not you have OSA, if your partner regularly complains of your snoring habits, it's important to meet with a qualified medical specialist like Dr. Arne Gundersen.

Following a thorough oral exam and review of your medical history, Dr. Arne Gundersen can formulate a treatment plan that helps you get a restful night's sleep.
