How does obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) affect productivity?

Sleep deprivation caused by snoring and OSA can make you feel moody, tired, and mentally impaired. In fact, researchers claim that those with OSA have more car accidents and sick days than non-snorers. People with OSA also have poor concentration, impaired memory and do poorly on psychological testing. This may be caused by the low levels of oxygen in their blood, however, correcting the problem may let you experience all stages of sleep and rejuvenate your body.
