WHAT ARE RISK FACTORS FOR SLEEP APNEA?
Obstructive sleep apnea is more common in males than females, and more common in older adults (40 and up). However, anyone – regardless of gender or age – can suffer from sleep apnea. Other risk factors include obesity, smoking, drinking, use of sedatives or tranquilizers, high blood pressure, and family history. Central sleep apnea strikes most often in people with heart disorders, neuromuscular disorders, strokes, or brain tumors. It is also more common in males.
CAN CHILDREN SUFFER FROM SLEEP APNEA?
Yes. In children, sleep apnea can cause hyperactivity, poor school performance, and angry or hostile behavior. Children who have sleep apnea also may have unusual sleeping positions, bedwetting, and may breathe through their mouths instead of their noses during the day.
