Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) happens when something partly or completely blocks the upper airway when the eyes are shut. This makes the diaphragm and chest muscles work harder to open the obstructed airway and pull air into the lungs. After a loud gasp, snort, or body jerk, normal breathing resumes. This condition can also reduce the flow of oxygen to vital organs and cause irregular heart rhythms.
What are the symptoms OSA?
The most common symptoms are:
Daytime sleepiness or fatigue
Dry mouth while waking up
Headaches in the morning
Trouble concentrating, forgetfulness, depression, or irritability
Restlessness during sleep
Waking up suddenly and feeling like gasping or choking
The possible options include:
if needed. Losing even 10% of your weight can make a difference.
Avoid consumption of alcohol, this makes the air passage tube to more likely collapse during sleep and lengthen the times of not breathing properly.
Nasal sprays, if sinus problems or nasal congestion make it harder to breathe while you sleep.
Oral devices. For people suffering from mild sleep apnea, dental appliances help prevent the tongue from blocking the throat or advance the lower jaw forward can be made. These devices help keep the airway open during sleep.
Surgery is for people who have extra or misshapen tissue that blocks airflow through the nose or throat. Doctors usually try other treatments first.
