A large Fullpower-AI study of 300,000+ nights of sleep, leveraging the new polysomnography-grade Fullpower-AHI platform, confirms that breathing anomalies while we sleep become more prevalent as we age and BMI increases. Males are significantly more susceptible than females. Breathing anomalies while we sleep, including apnea, are important indicators of potential serious wellness challenges. Loud snoring can often be a precursor of sleep apnea.
Here are a few relevant studies:
1. How Obstructive Sleep Apnea Correlates to Age
2. Age-Group-Specific Associations between the Severity of Obstructive Sleep Apnea and Relevant Risk Factors in Male and Female Patients
3. Effects of Age on Sleep Apnea in Men
4. Obstructive sleep apnea is a common disorder in the population—a review on the epidemiology of sleep apnea
