Alcohol Will Help You Sleep


A nightcap may make you drowsy, but it does not promote good quality sleep. Alcohol relaxes the muscles in the back of the throat. This makes it easier for the airway to become blocked in people with OSA.

Sleeping pills have the same effect.

Sleep Apnea Is Rare in Kids


OSA is actually common in children,

affecting as many as one in 10. In most cases, the

symptoms are mild, and the child eventually

outgrows the condition. But some children may

develop behavioral issues or serious medical

problems as a result of OSA.
