Associated conditions include OBESITY; ACROMEGALY; MYXEDEMA; micrognathia; MYOTONIC DYSTROPHY; adenotonsilar dystrophy; and NEUROMUSCULAR DISEASES.

  • Characterized by repeated episodes of apneas and hypopneas during sleep caused by variability in respiratory effort but without evidence of airway obstruction. (
  • Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is a common sleep disorder characterized by repetitive upper airway obstruction, intermittent hypoxemia, and recurrent awakenings during sleep. (
  • The most used treatment for this syndrome is a device that generates a positive airway pressure-Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP), but it works continuously, whether or not there is apnea. (

  • Sleep apnea lies at the severe end of a continuum of sleep-related disorders of breathing, with simple snoring at the mildest end and upper airway resistance syndrome (UARS) in the middle. (
  • There is another, uncommon form of sleep apnea called central sleep apnea, characterized by periods of diminished or absent respiratory effort, rather than by airway obstruction (in OSA). (
  • Sleep apnea is caused by collapse of the upper airway, specifically the soft tissue in the pharynx, the passageway that leads from the nose and mouth, to the esophagus and voice-box (larynx). (
  • Sleep apnea is characterized by pauses in breathing for more than 10 seconds as the airway is obstructed during sleep. (
  • Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is the most common breathing disorder during sleep, characterized by recurrent upper airway obstruction/collapse, chronic intermittent hypoxia, and fragmented sleep. (
  • Breathing-related sleep disorder is a spectrum of diseases including snoring, upper airway resistance syndrome and sleep apnea [ 1 ]. (
  • Obstructive sleep apnea occurs because the muscles at the back of the throat relax, and this narrows down the airway, and so the patient doesn't get enough oxygen. (
