  • 13. 
    Why does sleep apnea cause an increase in the risk of a heart attack?
    • A. 

      Sleep apnea causes the lungs to congest the alveoli, diabling them from putting oxygen into the blood, which causes pulmonary hypertension, causing a heart attack

    • B. 

      Sleep apnea triggers the body's "fight or flight" mechanism, which decreases the amount of blood pumped to the heart, and with repeated episodes every night for years it can starve the heart of oxygen

    • C. 

      Sleep apnea deprives the brain of oxygen, which increases the rate of heartbeat until the heart dies
