If you suffer from sleep apnea, you know how difficult it can be to get a good night of sleep. Those who struggle with sleep apnea often stop breathing repeatedly throughout the night, hundreds of times even, in some cases. While this makes it incredibly uncomfortable for sleeping, it also starves your body and brain of oxygen. When this happens, you don’t receive the necessary amount of oxygen, making sleep apnea a serious condition.
