Obstructive Sleep Apnea is a disorder in which breathing is briefly and repeatedly interrupted during sleep. The word “apnea” literally means “without breath”. Apnea is defined as a cessation of breath that lasts at least ten seconds. Obstructive apneas occur when the muscles in the back of the throat are not able to keep the throat open, despite efforts to breathe. This causes blockage in the airway and breathing interruptions or apnea’s. Obstructive apneas can result in two problems: fragmented sleep and lowered levels of oxygen in the blood. The combination of sleep disturbance and oxygen starvation can result in multiple problems, including automobile accidents, hypertension, heart disease, moodiness and memory problems.
