What is Sleep Apnea?
Sleep Apnea is a potentially serious sleep disorder. People with sleep apnea that goes untreated stop breathing throughout the night, sometimes many times. This disorder can deprive the brain and the body of needed oxygen. Obstructive Sleep Apnea is caused by a blockage of the airway in the back of the throat during sleep.
