Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) is a serious condition that can put
your heart health at risk. With OSA, your upper airway collapses as many
as 50 to 100 times an hour throughout the night, causing your breathing
to stop. As your body struggles to breathe, you may awaken and not know
it, leading to fatigue throughout the day. OSA also prevents air from
entering and exiting the lungs. This causes your heart to work harder,
which poses serious risks to your heart health.
At St.Vincent Heart Center of Indiana,
the Sleep Center of Indiana provides diagnosis, advanced treatment, and
expert follow-up care from cardiologists of St.Vincent Medical Group.
The Sleep Center team works together to protect the heart from the

If you snore, gasp for air when
sleeping, or wake up frequently during the night… if you have morning
headaches, feel sleepy during the day, or have trouble
concentrating, your heart health could be at risk. To find out more
