The name Sleep Apnea does not convey the seriousness of this disorder.
Sleep Suffocation signifies the severity of the condition much more clearly.
Those who suffer from sleep apnea have no way of knowing until the breathing pauses lengthen to the point that blood oxygen levels drop significantly. Lower oxygen levels then make us desperate for air, causing us to wake up gasping for breath. By this point, our pulse is racing; we are short of breath and often emit a gasping snort.
