What is Obstructive Sleep Apnea?

What is Obstructive Sleep Apnea?

Obstructive sleep apnea is a sleep disorder where your breathing is interrupted while you sleep. Interrupted breathing happens because of a narrowed or blocked airway. When you sleep the muscles in your throat relax. Relaxed muscles are a normal part of sleep. Usually, your throat remains open enough to let air pass through. But for some people, the muscles relax too much and the airway is blocked. When the airway collapses your body wakes up momentarily so you can open it up again. Usually, people will wake up with a gasp. These episodes are brief and most people don’t even notice that they happen.
