Sleep apnea is a breathing disorder characterized by repetitive pauses in breathing during sleep. Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) involves a decrease or complete halt in airflow despite an ongoing effort to breathe. It occurs when the muscles relax during sleep, causing soft tissue in the back of the throat to collapse and block the upper airway. When air rushes through a partially collapsed airway, it creates the sound of snoring, and snoring is one of the most obvious signs of sleep apnea. Sleep apnea can be very serious if left untreated because it increases the risk of heart attack, high blood pressure, obesity, stroke and diabetes.
