Obesity Hypoventilation Syndrome (OHS) is a condition that exists when an obese person has difficulty breathing. It occurs as a result of the body’s natural response to obesity. With more weight comes less space for the lungs and other organs, including the diaphragm, which can make it difficult to breathe.
Obesity Hypoventilation Syndrome is the most common and under-diagnosed cause of daytime sleepiness. This disorder can have a negative impact on your life, making it hard to do simple daily tasks, like going to work, school or even just doing your chores around the house. Many people suffer in silence without the proper treatment. Treatment at Breath Easy Advanced Chest Care Centre will reduce your BMI while optimizing your respiratory health.
