What You Should Know about Sleep Apnea: An Easy to Understand Guide (Paperback)
This little book is intended to be a helpful, practical and useful guide to sleep apnea. Sleep apnea should be as familiar and as well known by the general public as common diseases, such as emphysema, Alzheimer's disease, and heart attack. Sleep apnea is much more common than you may think. Its manifestations are widespread. It affects routine everyday activity in many ways. Awareness is essential. This is because the disease is often insidious and may be present for many years before its existance is even suspected. If one does not know about the disease or about what effects it may have on human life, it will never be discovered or even thought of during its early stages. As you will see throught this book, sleep apnea can easily affect your life without you even knowing it. One of the primary purposes of this book is to increase awareness of sleep apnea. Over the years many hints about sleep apnea are dropped and ignored. If you are not aware of the possibility of subtle changes, how can you do something about it? The topic of sleep apnea is not just about a lung disease. It is actually about human life in general. This book presents a fairly detailed overall view of sleep apnea. It will be an eye-openning experience for all readers.
