Sleep apnea is a severe sleeping disorder characterised by interruption in a person’s breathing during sleep. A person suffering from an untreated condition of sleep apnea may stop breathing many times during sleep, resulting in oxygen deficiency in brain and other parts of the body.

Types of sleep apnea

Sleep apnea can be distinguished into two parts, as follows: -

Obstructive sleep apnea – OSA is the most common type of sleep apnea and occurs due to the collapse of soft tissues in throat, which obstructs the airway.

Central sleep apnea – caused due to respiratory control centre instability, it occurs when due to failure of brain to incite the muscles to breathe.Image title
