Goal: Ensure nocturnal oxygenation

Approach: Exclude or treat sleep apnea

Sleep apnea is a common breathing disorder that occurs when sleepers stop breathing hundreds of times during the night. It has been linked to memory decline and dementia. Some estimate that 70 to 80 percent of people with Alzheimer's have it. The most effective treatment is to wear a mask that delivers air, called a CPAP. If you are overweight, losing weight might also help.
