Sleep apnea is a common, but potentially serious sleep disorder. It is a condition when breathing repetitively stops and begins when sleeping. Popularity of sleep apnea evaluation at home is increasing because it is easier and less costly. You can easily evaluate sleep apnea by using testing tools that have different sensors and equipment.
These testing devices help you to assess level of oxygen in blood, airflow, breathing patterns and heart rate. If the test results show drop in oxygen level during apnea and later increases with awakenings, it means you have sleep apnea.
Sleep apnea is known to increase cardiovascular mortality.
