Severe Health Consequences of Obstructed Breathing

Obstructed breathing function can have severe health consequences, impacting various aspects of an individual’s well-being. From respiratory issues to sleep disorders, this condition significantly affects the quality of life. These and other effects can cause severe harm to one’s health, highlighting the importance of seeking professional assistance for effective treatment and management.

Respiratory Complications from Obstructed Breathing

When the airways are obstructed, it becomes challenging for the body to receive an adequate oxygen supply. This impairment can lead to various respiratory complications, such as chronic coughing, wheezing and shortness of breath. Additionally, individuals may experience frequent respiratory infections due to weakened immunity, further compromising their health.

Sleep Disorders from Obstructed Breathing

Obstructed breathing function often results in sleep disorders, most notably obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). Chronic daytime sleepiness and poor concentration are symptoms of OSA. In addition, the lack of quality sleep can negatively impact cognitive function, mood and overall productivity.

Cardiovascular Issues from Obstructed Breathing

Poor breathing function is closely linked to cardiovascular problems. Blood pressure rises when the heart needs to work harder to provide the body with oxygen, which increases cardiovascular disease risk. Therefore, properly managing obstructed breathing is crucial to safeguard heart health.

Impaired Mental Health from Obstructed Breathing

The impact of obstructed breathing function extends beyond physical health, affecting mental well-being as well. For example, chronic sleep deprivation due to sleep disorders can contribute to developing or worsening conditions like anxiety and depression.

Decreased Quality of Life from Obstructed Breathing

Living with obstructed breathing function can be immensely challenging. Fatigue, diminished cognitive function and reduced overall vitality can limit one’s ability to participate in daily activities, work productively and enjoy life to the fullest.

What Dr. Khosh's Patients Say

Meredith G.
Saw Dr. Khosh for a fractured nose. He reset my nose beautifully (and with little discomfort to me) and then discussed some of my sinus issues with me upon my follow up visit. Never felt like he was rushing me out and felt very confident in his abilities. I would highly recommend to anyone needing plastic or reconstructive options!

After visiting and being evaluated by several doctors, I kept going back to Dr. Khosh. His tranquil spirit and professionalism were captivating. Thank you for a job well done and keeping me calm throughout the entire process. A special thanks to your staff Susan and Christine for all of their support as well. Hi highly recommend Dr. Khosh.

Upon hearing of the overwhelmingly positive experience a friend of mine had in choosing Dr. Khosh as her surgeon, I decided to make an appointment for my own septoplasty/rhinoplasty/turbinate reduction. Although I was slightly skeptical as the praise I had heard seemed a bit hyperbolic, all uncertainty dissipated after meeting the Doctor and his staff. My pre- and post-operative experience was excellent in terms of concerns adequately addressed prior to the surgery and mitigation of any bruising in the convalescent period. Despite my apparent predisposition to rather slower healing, a year after the surgery, my nose looks really pretty and my breathing entirely unobstructed! I highly recommend Dr. Khosh!
Courtney G.
AMAZING!!!!!! I had Dr Khosh perform lipo on my chin/neck and my result is unbelievable! Better than I could have expected! I met with a couple of surgeons and the second I met with Dr Khosh I knew he was the one I was going with. He was compassionate and explained every detail of what would take place during the surgery and what to expect during recovery. I even emailed a few times during recovery with various questions and he got right back to me asap which was really comforting! I honestly fully recommend Dr Khosh, he did an amazing job and is an amazing person.

i can finally breathe!! Dr. Khosh made the entire experience a breeze, it was truly a pleasure to be under his care. I am forever thankful and highly recommend him. Not only does his work speak for himself, but he has excellent bedside manner. His kindness and patience is above and beyond. He takes the time to answer to every question you have to help you understand the process while at the same time making you feel so comfortable. From the first consultation i knew i was in good hands. I am so pleased with the result and forever thankful.
