Understanding Sleep Apnea

Sleep apnea is a common yet serious sleep disorder where breathing repeatedly stops and starts during sleep. If you snore loudly and feel tired even after a full night’s sleep, you might have sleep apnea.

Types of Sleep Apnea:

  • Obstructive Sleep Apnea: The most common form, caused by throat muscles relaxing.
  • Central Sleep Apnea: Involves the central nervous system, occurring when the brain fails to signal the muscles that control breathing.
  • Complex Sleep Apnea Syndrome: A combination of both obstructive and central sleep apnea.

Signs & Symptoms

  • Loud snoring
  • Episodes of stopped breathing during sleep
  • Gasping for air during sleep
  • Morning headache
  • Insomnia or hypersomnia
  • Irritability
  • Attention problems
