What is Sleep Apnea?
Sleep apnea is a sleep disorder that causes abnormal breathing patterns and prevents patients from achieving deep sleep, causing a slew of complications. Sleep apnea is categorized under the following two major categories:
Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is much more common and occurs when a physical blockage prevents air from passing through the airway. This can be as a result of over relaxed muscles or abnormality with the anatomical structure.
Central sleep apnea occurs when signals from the brain fail to reach the muscles required to breathe.
Additionally, patients experiencing both symptoms are diagnosed with combination or complex sleep apnea. If gone untreated, sleep apnea can contribute to a range systemic-related issues, such as high blood pressure, diabetes, depression, headaches, stroke, or heart failure.
