What is Obstructive Sleep Apnea?

Obstructive sleep apnea is a serious sleep disorder that keeps your brain from getting the oxygen that it needs while you rest. While a patient with obstructive sleep apnea is asleep, the muscles in their throat start to relax until the airway collapses. Once the patient’s airway collapses, the brain notices the patient isn’t breathing and wakes up just enough to re-open the airway.

Patients with sleep apnea can wake up hundreds of times during the night without realizing it. Because they keep waking up, their bodies are unable to reach that deep REM state they need to wake up feeling restored and refreshed. Patients with sleep apnea find it harder to be productive throughout the day. They are also prone to more serious health risks if they don’t receive treatment.
