What is Sleep Apnea?
Sleep apnea is a condition in which the patient experiences breathing cessation during sleep. The condition can cause snoring, poor sleep quality, and other symptoms. There are two main types of sleep apnea: obstructive sleep apnea, in which the breathing passages become blocked by soft tissues in the throat, and central sleep apnea, in which the brain fails to signal breathing by the airway muscles. Sleep apnea can be life threatening if left untreated.
