Sleep Apnea is a serious sleeping disorder, happens when the person’s breathing is repeatedly interrupted during sleep. Apnea means breathing pause for at least ten seconds. Reason for disorder is when the throat is unable to keep the airway open. The main types of Sleep Apnea are:
- Central apnea occurs when the brain doesn’t send the proper signal to the muscles that control breathing
- Obstructive sleep apnea occurs when the muscles that support the soft palate relax.
- Complex sleep apnea occurs when both the central and obstructive apnea happens in the case.
