    Most of us or anyone else can suffer from sleep apnea. Sleep apnea has several causes, and one of the main causes of sleep apnea is chronic sudden sleep apnea. In other words, coughing does not always mean illness (sudden sleep apnea symptoms)! This means you may have a cough but not the disease. How is this disease recognized and diagnosed? This disease is located in the Department of Respiratory Diseases and is considered a specialist in diseases of the respiratory system and lungs. Diagnosis and clinical signs include:
    First, the affected person is usually older than 50 years of age (it may occur at younger ages), is generally more common in men, and may have a family history of the disease. The affected person is often overweight or obese, and these patients often suffer from other diseases such as diabetes, high blood pressure, heart failure, thyroid failure, kidney failure, chronic respiratory diseases, etc., and sometimes he has a large body weight. , especially a lot of muscle and fat around his neck and throat. A person may have problems with the lining of the nose, sinuses, and throat.
    second/ Feeling constantly sleepy during the day, as the patient constantly sleeps at times that are not the normal time for sleep, such as while eating, driving, attending events, often watching television, or being in public places such as mosques and markets. In addition to this drowsiness, the patient always feels weak, and constantly feels that he did not get enough sleep and needs more sleep.
    Third: Coughing (snoring) It is one of the most common symptoms of the disease. Fourth: Suddenly stopping breathing during sleep, or feeling sleepy during sleep. This symptom is often not felt by the patient himself, but is often seen by relatives and makes the patient wake up to avoid drowning. This symptom is an indispensable diagnostic condition.
    Morning headache, frequent urination at night, frequent awakening at night, and a feeling of depression and impatience are other symptoms of the disease. After these symptoms appear, the specialist needs to make a final diagnosis using a device that is fortunately now available in Kurdistan, called a polysomnogram or PSG. The electronic recording device is connected to the patient at bedtime, and in most cases the patient must be admitted to the hospital when the device is installed, and sometimes it can be connected at home. After diagnosis, what is the treatment? Treatment of the disease consists of two parts:
    the first/ General treatments such as losing weight, avoiding cigarettes and alcohol, treating nasal and sinus congestion if they have problems.
    the second/ The basic treatment is to wear and use a special device at night during sleep called a PAP device, which has several types such as (CPAP and BiPAP). Wearing the device while sleeping throughout the sleep period or at least 7 hours every night.
