You may have sleep apnea without even knowing it. Loud snoring is often the most noticeable sign of sleep apnea, but there are other symptoms to worry about too.Read Transcript
When I look in the mouth, I look at a tongue position, if the tongue position is high. I look at the oral pharynx, the tonsil adenoid pillars. I look at the uvula. Just the space that allows a person to breathe properly. The only way to really know if you do have the sleep apnea is with a home sleep test or a test in the hospital. Most people prefer the home sleep test because it's done in the privacy of your own home, and you don't have to go to a foreign place. They're simple. They're easy. They give you a report that shows if you do have apneas, shows you your REM sleep, oxygen saturation. If you do snore, what decibel level, and much like high blood pressure, you really don't know until you do test.
