April 18th is Sleep Apnea Awareness Day 2012!

The American Sleep Apnea Association (ASAA) has declared April 18, 2012 as Sleep Apnea Awareness Day. Sleep Apnea occurs when the airway is blocked during sleep, causing loss of oxygen to the blood, and causing the body to not be able to achieve deep REM sleep.
