Chicago Sleep Center’s Caution about Obstructive Sleep Apnea Risks
SleepApneaDisorder/[Press Release ]/ CHICAGO/ — Physical well-being is not the only thing impaired by disrupted sleep patterns. While we’ve all experienced a sluggish day after a poor night’s sleep, adults with untreated obstructive sleep apnea can jeopardize much more than a productive day at the office. Drowsy, fatigued drivers have reduced reaction times and decision-making skills, posing a significant risk to themselves and others on the road. Dr. Brian Rotskoff of Clarity Allergy Center tests for and treats adult sleep apnea and childhood obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) at his three Chicagoland offices.
Dr. Rotskoff specializes in nasal allergies, immunotherapy, asthma, as well as sleep apnea diagnosis and treatment. “Sleep apnea is a breathing issue, first and foremost,” explains Dr. Rotskoff. “It is often characterized by snoring and restless sleep patterns, but what really happens during sleep apnea is breathing resistance or pauses in breathing. That resistance shouldn’t be ignored.”
Dr. Rotskoff provides comprehensive screening for children and adults with OSA in Chicago, nocturnal sleep studies, and treatment using the Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) machine.
Regardless of age, sleep apnea can be detrimental to a person’s physical and emotional health. “Adults have the ability to power through exhaustion better than children, but the toll can be greater,” says Dr. Rotskoff. “Sleep apnea sufferers become accustom to their tiredness. They find ways to compensate and often don’t recognize how exhausted they really are. Add wintery road conditions to the mix and the potential for danger is very high,” says Dr. Rotskoff.
