What causes Apnea?

The facts.

Sleep apnea is a common sleep disorder characterized by repeated interruptions in breathing throughout the sleep cycle.

These interruptions, called apneas, are caused by the collapse of soft tissue in the airway, which prevents oxygen from reaching the lungs.

Weak muscles in the airway, a large tongue, obesity, and other factors may cause airway tissue to collapse and obstruct breathing.

Early morning headaches

Excessive daytime fatigue

Poor concentration

Depression or irritability

Sleepiness during routine activities

Loud persistent snoring

Witnessed pauses in breathing

Choking for air during sleep

Restless sleep

Frequent visits to the bathroom
