What is sleep apnea?
Sleep Apnea is defined as an interruption in breathing which lasts at least 10 seconds during sleep. People affected by sleep apnea do not get restful sleep. Some consequences are daytime sleepiness with impaired mental and physical capabilities, high blood pressure, depression, cardiac arrest and stroke.
In cases of obstructive sleep apnea, the patient's upper airways collapse when the muscles of the soft palate slacken. The root of the tongue falls to the back of the throat, effectively blocking the flow of air into the narrow airways. In central sleep apnea there is a lack of nasal/oral air flow due to malfunctioning respiratory stimulus. In mixed sleep apnea, the absence of respiratory stimulus causes breathing to cease, which is followed by a collapse of the upper airways when the patient's respiratory efforts resume.
