What is Sleep Apnea?
Obstructive sleep apnea is when the airway collapses during sleep, blocking the flow of air to the lungs. The person tries to continue to breathe, but the harder they try, the tighter the airway closes. Eventually the brain “wakes up” the person to a lighter level of sleep and the person will reposition their jaw and tongue to open the airway—usually with a gasp or snort. The sleeper will then usually start the whole process over again.
