Medical News Summary (summary of medical news story as reported by The Louisville Channel): The characteristics of sleep apnea are often misunderstood. Snoring itself is not necessarily harmful unless it is associated with pauses in breathing sleep apnea. One of the obvious symptoms of sleep apnea is excessive daytime sleepiness. Excessive lack of sleep has been linked to obesity, high blood pressure, bad moods and negative behavior as well as safety issues at work and at home. Excessive daytime sleep may also be related to other medical conditions. The average adult requires 7 to 9 hours of sleep each night.
