Sleep Apnea is a common, but serious, issue that affects the ability to sleep soundly. Those with sleep apnea are not able to achieve a fully restful sleep due to breathing irregularities. Their breathing could potentially be interrupted for minutes at a time; this may cause disruption in their REM cycles and diminish the overall quality of their sleep. The effects of sleep apnea can lead to long-term health issues such as diabetes, heart disease, stroke, and obesity.
