What is Sleep Apnea?

Sleep apnea is a medical disorder that affects a multitude of individuals of all ages and ethnicities.  A common symptom of sleep apnea is when an individual snores.

Apnea is defined as a cessation of airflow for greater than 10 seconds. As a result, when an individual experiences an apnea event, there is a lack of oxygen flow into the body resulting in many complications. There are two main types of sleep apnea which are:

Obstructive Sleep Apnea: when the body is asleep the relaxation of the upper airway muscles can cause an obstruction to the airflow of oxygen into the lungs

Central Sleep Apnea: when the brain fails to transmit signals to the upper respiratory muscles resulting in a cessation of breathing
