What to know about Sleep Apnea


Sleep apnea is a type of sleep disorder that occurs when breathing is disrupted when sleeping. Air will stop flowing due to a blockage, either causing a sufferer to snore or feel tired despite having a full night of sleep. This disorder can potentially be dangerous to sufferers if they are unable to get a good night’s rest, affecting their work and personal life.

Classification of Sleep Apnea

1) Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) is the most common category of sleep-disordered breathing. The muscle tone of the body orarily relaxes during sleep, and at the level of the throat the human airway is composed of collapsible walls of soft tissue which can obstruct breathing during sleep. (Consider to choose an Auto CPAP Device)
2) In pure Central Sleep Apnea (CSA) or Cheyne-Stokes respiration, the brain’s respiratory control centers are imbalanced during sleep. (Consider to choose an Auto BiPAP Device)
3) Mixed Sleep Apnea (MSA) is a combination of Obstructive and Central apnea.

Symptoms of Sleep Apnea

• Loud snoring

• Inability to concentrate during the day and a decrease in cognitive ability

• Sufferers will feel inclined to sleep or take naps during the day time to make up for tiredness

You may prefer to consult with your family doctor or specialist to adopt a sleep study before you are identified Sleep Apnea.

Ignoring the signs of sleep apnea can be particularly damaging and dangerous to your life. If your sleep is regularly disrupted, you may find your work life and productivity is minimal. More importantly, you may significantly shorten your lifespan, as issues including high blood pressure, heart disease and even fatal accidents caused by falling asleep at the wheel can be more common, for example.
It’s important to get treatment for sleep apnea as soon as you notice signs. Depending on your preference, consult with your family doctor, or book an appointment with a specialist to give you a sleep test before you are identified with sleep apnea.
