Sleep Apnea Quiz: Widespread Effects

quizwoodblueDo you generally think to yourself that sleep apnea treatment is important, of course? Since you don’t sleep throughout the night, you figure you might feel exhausted and need some sort of extra care. While paying attention to the short-term issues that crop up when sleep apnea takes hold of your sleeping patterns is essential, you might be overlooking some additional factors. True, this sleep disorder is going to cause some intense fatigue but did you know that it leads to further (and often more damaging) problems? Let’s test what you know with a quiz.

Quiz Questions: True or False?

  1. True or False: When suffering from sleep apnea, the side effects tend to impact only the person who is dealing with the sleep disorder.
  2. True or False: Besides feeling exhausted by choosing to avoid sleep apnea treatment, there’s not much else that will come about as far as side effects are concerned.
  3. True or False: If you treat sleep apnea, it will make your daily life easier but it’s not going to protect you from any serious health hazards.
