Are You Sleep Deprived?

The moodiness and irritability that accompany chronic sleepiness affect job performance and personal relationships. For those who operate equipment, work shifts or drive for a living, sleep (or lack thereof) will affect the safety of those around you. Falling asleep while driving and workplace injuries due to sleep deprivation kills thousands of people every year.

For some, sleep deprivation is caused by a sleep disorder called Obstructive Sleep Apnea Syndrome (OSAS). Obstructive Sleep Apnea Syndrome is a repeated cessation of breathing during sleep caused by a blocked airway. The most common treatment for OSAS is Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) Therapy.

Many CPAP users report feeling much better after their very first night of CPAP therapy. In most cases, CPAP is needed for the rest of the user’s life to keep OSAS under control. Unless the OSAS is eliminated by lifestyle changes or other treatments, its symptoms and health risks will return if CPAP therapy is stopped. Only a repeat evaluation can determine whether OSAS has been eliminated by other measures.
