Sleep apnea is a serious medical condition that causes you to repeatedly stop breathing for brief moments during sleep. If left untreated, sleep apnea increases your risk for a number of serious conditions, including stroke, heart failure, irregular heartbeat and type 2 diabetes. Fortunately, there are a variety of effective treatments for sleep apnea.

Hear board-certified sleep medicine specialist Thomas Minor, MD, describe the health risks of and current treatment options for sleep apnea.
