What Is Sleep Apnea?
Sleep apnea is a sleep disorder that disrupts sleep by obstructing the airways. Sleep apnea affects over 18 million Americans. Sleep apnea creates breaks in between breathing which may cause some to awaken. Sleep apnea causes breathing to stop or get shallow. Sleep apnea often goes undetected to patients with the disorder due to the fact that sleep apnea only happens as they sleep. Sleep apnea can be divided into two different types; obstructive sleep apnea and central sleep apnea. If left untreated, one can suffer from constant sleep deprivation, high blood pressure, heart failure, heart attack, stroke or depression. It is highly encouraged that one treats their sleep apnea before symptoms worsen.

It is a chronic condition that must be treated. Sleep apnea is difficult to measure for children, but studies have found that at least 2 to 3% of children suffer from sleep apnea. If left untreated pediatric sleep apnea can result in learning deficiencies and behavioral problems.

Exercise and healthier habits can help patients with sleep apnea maintain a better lifestyle to improve their symptoms. Patients can also practice relaxation techniques like yoga, massage therapy, breathing exercises and more more to help curb their sleep apnea.

What Kinds Of Sleep Apnea Are There?
There are two main types of sleep apnea. There is obstructive sleep apnea and central sleep apnea. Obstructive sleep apnea happens when the airways become compromised. Some leading factors that can contribute to this sleep disorder would be larger tonsils, neck size change, obesity and changes to the shape of the roof of your mouth. Central sleep apnea does not result in your airways being obstructed, but occurs in the brain. Central sleep apnea is when the brain negates sending signals to regulate sleep patterns throughout the night. Some conditions include drug-induced apnea, Cheyne-Stokes breathing, high-altitude sleep apnea and other medical conditions.
