SYMP­TOMS OF OB­STRUC­TIVE SLEEP AP­NEA

HT Ludhiana Live - - City -

Ex­ces­sive day­time sleepi­ness. Gen­er­ally, pa­tients risk fall­ing asleep dur­ing the day while per­form­ing rou­tine ac­tiv­i­ties such as read­ing, watch­ing TV, sit­ting in­ac­tively, ly­ing down, or rid­ing in a car while a pas­sen­ger or stopped for a few min­utes in traf­fic. Usu­ally, these brief episodes of sleep do not seem to re­lieve their over­all sense of sleepi­ness.

Ir­ri­tabil­ity and im­paired men­tal or emo­tional func­tion­ing. These types of symp­toms are di­rectly re­lated to in­ter­rupted sleep.

Snor­ing. Bed part­ners may re­port very loud and in­ter­rupted snor­ing. Pa­tients ex­pe­ri­ence snor­ing as­so­ci­ated with chok­ing or gasps.
