Why Women Should Also Be Concerned About Sleep Apnea

How sleep apnea affects women

In 2013, UCLA led a study that highlighted that women with sleep apnea are more affected in the areas of the brain that regulate the mood and decision-making. It is indicated that aside from experiencing daytime sleepiness and issues with concentration, this disorder can also cause an irregular heartbeat and high blood pressure, on top of other serious health problems like an increased chance of stroke.
