What Is Sleep Apnea?
Sleep apnea is a disorder that interrupts your breathing repeatedly throughout sleep. The most common form is obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) and it occurs when the muscles in the back of the throat relax while you sleep, blocking the airway and causing shortness of breath. When an individual suffers from sleep apnea, their brain repeatedly sends out signals to wake them up to recover oxygen throughout the night. This causes fatigue, headaches, and irritation the following morning and may cause other serious side effects like stroke, heart or liver problems, and even death in rare cases.
