Prognosis of Sleep apnea


About prognosis: The 'prognosis' of Sleep apnea usually refers to the likely outcome of Sleep apnea. The prognosis of Sleep apnea may include the duration of Sleep apnea, chances of complications of Sleep apnea, probable outcomes, prospects for recovery, recovery period for Sleep apnea, survival rates, death rates, and other outcome possibilities in the overall prognosis of Sleep apnea. Naturally, such forecast issues are by their nature unpredictable.

Prognosis for Sleep apnea: Eliminating the obstruction usually reverses the commonly associated pulmonary and systemic hypertension and cardiac problems of obstructive apnea. Untreated, sleep apnea can greatly affect daytime functioning. Sleep apnea sufferers have a tendency to fall asleep during the day, a potentially deadly consequence of the disorder. 1
