What Is Sleep Apnea?

Sleep apnea is a disorder that causes a person to repeatedly yet briefly stop breathing throughout sleep. The two most common types of sleep apnea are central sleep apnea and obstructive sleep apnea. Central sleep apnea (CSA) is triggered when the brain fails to properly communicate with the lungs during sleep. Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is when the soft tissues in the back of the throat collapse during sleep and block airflow.

Symptoms of Sleep Apnea

Sometimes it can be difficult to diagnose sleep apnea since the disorder happens while you’re sleeping. However, there are some symptoms you can look for while you’re awake. Other symptoms can be monitored by a friend or family member while you’re asleep. Some symptoms include:

  • Daytime Drowsiness
  • Difficulty Focusing on Tasks
  • Dry Mouth
  • Forgetfulness
  • Frequent Headaches
  • Loud or Frequent Snoring
  • Sore Throat
