Lack of exercise
Fatty deposits in the neck pressing on the airway
Low muscle tone in the muscles surrounding the airway
Diet and exercise

Continuous Positive Airway Pressure
Consistent Pressure Air Progress
Care Protocol After Pressure
Keeps the mouth open so you can breath

Splints open the collapsed airway
Blows air in your nose so you get more oxygen

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