Sleep Apnea

What is Sleep Apnea?

Obstructive sleep apnea is a potentially serious sleep disorder in which breathing repeatedly stops and starts during sleep. Several types of sleep apnea exist, but the most common type is obstructive sleep apnea, which occurs when your throat muscles intermittently relax and block your airway during sleep. The most noticeable sign of obstructive sleep apnea is snoring, although not everyone who has obstructive sleep apnea snores.  You may have sleep apnea if you snore loudly and you feel tired even after a full night's sleep.  If you think you might have sleep apnea, see your doctor. Treatment is necessary to avoid heart problems and other complications.

Anyone can develop obstructive sleep apnea, although it most commonly affects older adults. It's also especially common in people who are overweight. Obstructive sleep apnea treatment may involve using a CPAP device to keep your airway open or undergoing a procedure to remove tissue from your nose, mouth or throat.

Sleep Apnea

Obstructive sleep apnea occurs when the muscles that support the soft tissues in your throat, such as your tongue and soft palate, temporarily relax. When these muscles relax, your airway is narrowed or closed, and breathing is momentarily cut off.
