Obstructive sleep apnea, or OSA, is a sleep
disorder in which breathing repeatedly stops and starts during sleep. Certain symptoms
of this condition may help predict heart disease. I’m Shelby Cullinan for the dailyRx New Network. A recent study found that factors associated
with OSA such oxygen level, sleep time, number of awakenings, leg movements, heart rate and
daytime sleepiness were significantly and independently associated with increased risk
of cardiac events. Speak with a doctor about treatment if you have OSA. To keep up to date
