Obstructive Sleep Apnea
Obstructive sleep apnea is a potentially serious sleep disorder. It causes breathing to repeatedly stop and start during sleep. There are several types of sleep apnea, but the most common is obstructive sleep apnea. This type of apnea occurs when your throat muscles intermittently relax and block your airway during sleep. A noticeable sign of obstructive sleep apnea is snoring.
Excessive daytime sleepiness
Observed episodes of breathing cessation during sleep
Abrupt awakenings accompanied by gasping or choking
Awakening with a dry mouth or sore throat
Difficulty concentrating during the day
Experiencing mood changes, such as depression or irritability
High blood pressure
Sleep Apnea Treatments
Sleep apnea treatments range from lifestyle changes, such as losing weight or changing sleep positions, to CPAP therapy, to surgery.
One may be able to treat mild cases of sleep apnea by changing your behavior, for example:
Avoiding alcohol and sleeping pills.
Changing sleep positions to improve breathing.
Stopping smoking. Smoking can increase the swelling in the upper airway, which may worsen both snoring and apnea.
