Half of Women May Have Sleep Apnea

Until recently, women were not considered equal to men….at least when it comes to obstructive sleep apnea. In a recent study, among women aged 20-44, 25% had sleep apnea, compared to 56 % of women aged 45-54 and 75 % of women aged 55-70.  Among women with hypertension or who were obese – two risk factors for sleep apnea – the numbers were even higher, reaching 80 to 84 % of women.  Obstructive sleep apnea appears to be an equal opportunity employer!
