What is sleep apnea?


While you Sleep your body relaxes and muscles soften causing the tongue to drop back as it relaxes and reduce the airflow as you are breathing. The soft tissue may vibrate and this causes you to snore.

Obstructive Sleep Apnea

If you have obstructive sleep apnea your airway periodically closes over and prevents air from getting to your lungs as you sleep. An apea can last from anywhere from a ten seconds to an entire minute in severe cases. Multiple apeas through the night can cause sleep disturbance due to a lack of oxygen to the brain.
