What is sleep apnea?
Sleep apnea is a very serious sleeping disorder. Sleep apnea occurs when a person’s breathing gets interrupted when they areasleep. People who suffer from sleep apnea, that goes untreated can stop breathing during their sleep. This happens repeatedly and sometimes hundreds of times depending on how severe their case is of sleep apnea. When a person stops breathing in their sleep – this means their brain, including the rest of their body, may not be getting enough oxygen.There are two types of sleep apneathat people me suffer from:
- Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA): OSA is the more common of the two types of sleep apnea. This type is caused by a blockage of the airway in the throat. Typically, this is when the soft tissue in the back of a persons’ throat collapses during their sleep.
- Central sleep apnea: This type of sleep apnea is rather different from OSA. In this case, the patients’ airway is not blocked, but however, the brainstill fails to signal the muscles to breathe. This is due to instability in the patients’ respiratory control center.
