What is OSA?
Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) is a serious, potentially life-altering and life-threatening condition that is easily identified and effectively treated.
OSA is when a person stops breathing repeatedly during sleep because the airway collapses and prevents air from getting into the lungs.
During sleep, relaxation of the muscles at the base of the throat causes the airway to close. This condition causes extremely loud snoring, followed by silent periods when breathing has stopped. These episodes where breathing ceases are called apneas. During apnea episodes, blood oxygen levels drop dramatically.
What are the symptoms:
- Excessively loud snoring
- Gasping and choking for breath
- Frequent awakening during the night
- Abnormal daytime sleepiness or fatigue
- Limited attention
- Memory loss
