Medical experts are now warning against the dangers of Obstructive sleep apnea.

Obstructive sleep apnea is quickly growing as a prevalent health concern and it is speculated that nearly 1 billion people suffer from this sleep disorder.

According to Medical News Today, Penn State College of Medicine has discovered that people who have been diagnosed with obstructive sleep apnea are at a much greater risk than others of dying suddenly.

 Dr. John S. Oh, of Penn State Health Milton S. Hershey Medical Center, said “obstructive sleep apnea is a common condition that can have fatal consequences.”

Dr. Ryan Soose told Medical News Today, “We’ve known for a long time that untreated sleep apnea patients are more likely to develop high blood pressure, heart disease, and a number of other health conditions. But the risk of sudden death reported in this study is eye-opening and makes a timely diagnosis and treatment even more pressing.”

While there is no definite understanding as to why sleep apnea causes sudden death, medical experts strongly believe it is because people who suffer from this condition tend to suffer from a lack of oxygen which results in the central nervous system becoming “over-aroused” and results in the increase of systolic and diastolic blood pressure.
