If someone in your house has a snoring problem, that could be a warning sign of sleep apnea. Dr. Gerard O'Halloran, ENT specialist, discusses this fairly common condition. Untreated apnea significantly increases the risk of heart attack and stroke . . . and can contribute to depression, anxiety and Alzheimer’s. “It’s good to address apnea early in the year, to have time to run through treatment options,” says ENT specialist Gerard O’Halloran, MD. Start now to keep the costs in the same calendar year. In this podcast, Dr. O’Halloran addresses the three levels of sleep apnea and treatments for each – plus the benefits of a sleep study, at home or in the hospital.
