Who Suffers from Sleep Apnea? [Infographic]

Nearly 1 billion people suffer from sleep apnea worldwide, according to research by ResMed and a panel of international sleep experts.

Sleep apnea is a serious, chronic disease that causes people to stop breathing while asleep. The brain, in an effort to avoid suffocation, jolts the body to force it to take a breath. This can happen tens to hundreds of times a night, without the person ever knowing. The result is severely disrupted sleep patterns, which can lead to life-threatening conditions such as chronic daytime sleepiness, heart disease, stroke, depression, type 2 diabetes and others. 

While most hear “sleep apnea” and think of an older, overweight male, the reality is that anyone–any age, any size, any gender–can suffer from sleep apnea. It’s this stigma that leads to 8 out of 10 cases being misdiagnosed. 

To learn the real deal about who suffers from sleep apnea, check out the infographic below and share it with your friends and family to help put this stigma to bed, once and for all!

If you suspect you have sleep apnea, you CAN do something about it without needing to visit tons of doctors, spending loads of cash, and waiting months for results! Get yourself a disposable at-home sleep test, take it from the comfort of your bed, and discuss your results with our Clinical Team over the phone, all in a matter of weeks if not days.
