If your partner has symptoms, don't ignore them
By Diana Kohnle
(HealthDay News) -- If your partner snores and has other signs of sleep apnea, experts say ignoring the condition can affect your partner's health.
The U.S. National Heart Lung and Blood Institute suggests how to help an affected loved one:
- If your partner snores loudly, has brief pauses in breathing and seems tired for no apparent reason during the day, let your partner know.
- Support your loved one and encourage him or her to get medical attention.
- Help your loved one stick with a doctor-approved treatment plan.
- Support your loved one emotionally.
