Numerous people face sleeping difficulties daily, like insomnia, sleep apnea, night terrors and sleep disturbances.
Sleep apnea is a disorder which occurs when the breathing is interrupted during the sleep. It is a result of the lack of oxygen in the body and the brain, and can be of two types:
-OSA (obstructive sleep apnea) which is a result of the blockage of the airway when the back of the throat’s soft tissue collapses during sleep.
-- Central sleep apnea occurs when the brain doesn’t signal the muscles to breathe due to instability in the respiratory control center.
Sleep apnea might affect all people, regardless of age, and the main risk factors include obesity, genetics, gastroesophageal reflux, a large neck size, allergies, nasal obstructions due to sinus problems, or deviated septum. Also, men and people over 40 are more prone to sleep apnea.
