Let Dad Know You Care About His Health This Weekend!

Posted by Jennifer Hines on Jun 15, 2018 4:01:40 PM


Father’s Day is this weekend, and we are celebrating our dad’s with the gift awareness!

Sleep apnea affects an estimated 22 million Americans, but did you know that sleep apnea is more prevalent in men vs. women with a ratio of 8:1, according to the National Sleep Foundation? This disorder is defined as having “one or more pauses in breathing or shallow breaths while you sleep” (NHLBI) and can be under-diagnosed because of the fact it that only a partner or sleep test can observe the symptoms.

Most of the time individuals are unaware that they may suffer from the condition and fail to seek necessary treatment. Some symptoms include waking up suddenly throughout the night short of breath, waking up with dry mouth or a sore throat, headache, daytime sleepiness, irritability or attention problems.

If left untreated, sleep apnea is linked to very serious conditions, such as heart disease, hypertension, stroke, and diabetes. This is why it is vital for individuals to be tested and seek treatment early on.

If you or a loved one exhibits any symptoms of sleep apnea, call Alaska Sleep Clinic right away and speak to one of our board-certified sleep specialists.

Our Dad’s are selfless caretakers who consistently put our needs ahead of their own. Sometimes they need some encouragement to take care of themselves. Show your dad love and appreciation by making sure he knows how much you care and that you want him to be healthy.

Happy Father’s Day to all from all of us at Alaska Sleep Clinic!  We wish you a lifetime of love, laughter, and health!

A Master Bedroom for a Master

Posted by Stefanie Leiter on Mar 7, 2018 6:22:00 PM

A sleepless night can be attributed to a lot of reasons. Some blame the lumpy mattress, their snoring spouse, the hot temperature, or the extra anxiety that comes with a stressful day. But one way to ensure a good night sleep is the environment. Dark colors on the wall, wrong curtains on the windows, and even clutter filling the nightstands can prohibit your chances for an oasis to call your own.
