What is Obstructive Sleep Apnea?

Obstructive sleep apnea is a potentially serious and life-threatening disorder that is characterized as a series of episodes in which a person stops breathing for a long period of time during sleep. During these episodes, your body is essentially choking on itself and causing these repeated episodes of suffocation that can last up to one or more minutes. These episodes can cause a variety of high-risk health issues and complications including heart disease, stroke, diabetes, cancer, obesity, high blood pressure, headaches, insomnia, and mental disorders.

Sleep apnea may be caused by genetics, poor posture, allergies, enlarged tonsils, and other issues. Obstructive sleep apnea is the most common form of sleep apnea. This is caused by airways in the throat and mouth collapsing during sleep. If you have obstructive sleep apnea, you or your partner may notice:

  • Extended pauses in breathing during sleep
  • Loud snoring
  • Restless sleep
  • Serious daytime sleepiness
  • Irritability or personality change
  • Poor memory or concentration
  • Headaches
  • Weight gain
  • Depression
