What is sleep apnea
Sleep Apnea is a common disorder in which you experience one or more pauses in breathing or shallow breaths while you sleep.
These breathing pauses can be seconds or minutes long and may occur 30 times or more in an hour. Typically, normal breathing then starts again, sometimes with a loud snort or choking sound.
Sleep apnea usually is a chronic (ongoing) condition that disrupts your sleep, as the pauses cause you to move out of deep sleep into light sleep.
Sleep apnea is a leading cause of excessive daytime sleepiness, as the quality of resulting sleep is poor, making you tired throughout the day
