Depression Could Perhaps be Sleep Apnea, Says Study


(University Herald) – A new research study has shown that many people who think they are depressed might actually be suffering from obstructive sleep apnea or OSA, Times gazette reports.

David Hillman, clinical professor at the University of Western Australia, was the senior author of the study.

David stated that effective treatment for OSA leads to a lot of improvement in symptoms of depression that included suicidal thoughts. Common symptoms of sleep apnea include pauses in breathing, snoring, disrupted night sleep and consequently, excessive sleepiness during daytime.
