High blood pressure (hypertension), heart failure, heart rhythm disturbances, atherosclerotic heart disease, pulmonary hypertension, insulin resistance and type 2 diabetes, and even death are some of the known complications of untreated obstructive sleep apnea.Sudden death can kill not only the patient but also their loved ones, for example, if they are driving a car when the death occurs.
