  • What Is Sleep Apnea or OSA (Obstructive Sleep Apnea)?

People who have Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) stop breathing repeatedly during sleep because the airway collapses. Breathing will resume, but the sleep patterns are interrupted and the quality of sleep is poor. Risk factors include: Being overweight, being male, and being 40 years of age and older. However, anyone (both men and women) at any age can develop sleep apnea (OSA), even children, and you do not have to be overweight to have sleep apnea.
