Our Mission Statement: New Life Sleep Center and its staff are committed to delivering thorough, compassionate, and convenient services to the patient and the healthcare provider(s).
Untreated sleep apnea can increase the chance of having high blood pressure and even a heart attack or stroke. Untreated sleep apnea can also increase the risk of diabetes and the risk for work related accidents and driving accidents. The risk of undiagnosed obstructive sleep apnea in children include learning problem, behavior problems, and in some cases, failure to grow, heart problems and high blood pressure. In addition, obstructive sleep apnea causes daytime sleepiness that can result in personality changes, lost productivity in school and interpersonal relationship problems.
