Sleep apnea is not always solely responsible for the heart attack, it is often a combination of several factors. However, a targeted treatment of sleep apnea already eliminates an important factor in the development of heart attacks and one can concentrate on combating other risk factors.
The Snorefox app is a great way to find out if you are at risk for sleep apnea. With Snorefox you can analyze your nocturnal breathing patterns at home with your own smartphone and receive a risk assessment the next morning.
If there is a risk, this information gives you the opportunity to receive targeted treatment - and in turn to reduce your heart attack risk.
