There are a number of sleep apnea factors that need to be considered.
Snoring, being tired, daytime sleepiness, stopping breathing, high blood pressure, obesity, age, gender and family history are all relevant to the clinical diagnosis and treatment of sleep apnea (OSA).
If you answer yes to 3 or more questions, I strongly encourage you consult your family doctor who may refer you for a sleep test.
If you have diagnosed sleep apnea, then a CPAP Machine or Auto CPAP Machine (sometimes referred to as a breathing machine) is the best way to treat OSA, which is a sleep disorder.
A sleep test is the only way to find out for sure if you need a CPAP Machine to treat sleep apnea.
