Know What To Look For if You Suspect Sleep Apnea
Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is a serious sleep disorder. It causes breathing to repeatedly stop and start during sleep.
There are a few types of sleep apnea, but the most common is called obstructive sleep apnea. This type of apnea occurs when your throat muscles intermittently relax and block your airway during sleep. A clear sign of obstructive sleep apnea is snoring.
