Sleep Apnea Risk Factors

According to the Public Health Agency of Canada, one in four Canadian adults is at high risk of developing obstructive sleep apnea. If you’re high-risk or already exhibiting signs of sleep apnea, it’s imperative to seek professional help as soon as possible.

Apnea is diagnosed through a process known as a sleep study. Though at-home testing options are available, most sleep studies are performed at a sleep clinic outfitted with equipment for assessing a sleeping patient’s breathing, heart rate, blood oxygen content and more.
