What is obstructive 11577 sleep apnea?
Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is a chronic condition which interferes with ordinary breathing patterns while you sleep. It occurs when the soft tissues of the throat relax to the point of blocking the airway and limit the supply of oxygen throughout the night. Sufferers of sleep apnea experience repeated pauses in breathing throughout the night, making it difficult to impossible to get a restorative night’s rest. It’s of the utmost importance to have a healthcare team assess sleep disordered breathing conditions, as OSA has been linked with increased risk for a range of systemic health conditions including heart attack and stroke.
