Sleep apnea is a type of sleeping disorder in which your breathing is interrupted in between during your sleep. People who do not treat themselves tend to stop breathing many times during their sleep and because of this your brain and your body may not get enough oxygen. But, the very first question that arises is that whether you have sleep apnea or not? for this several tests are carried out like sleep test or endoscope test to search for any kind of blockages. Then, your doctor will let you know the cause of your disease and whether you require surgical or non-surgical treatment. All these kinds of treatment are provided to you at Entific clinics and hospitals in Hong Kong and Macau.
