A great number of people suffer from sleep disorders such as insomnia and sleep apnea which can have a negative effect on their health.
The sleep apnea is a common sleep disorder known as an interrupted breathing while you sleep. People who have this problem and do not take anything to treat it can stop breathing repeatedly while they sleep. In other words, the brain and the body may not get enough oxygen.
There are 2 types of sleep apnea:
- OSA (obstructive sleep apnea) occurs when there is a blockage of the airway and the back of the throat’s soft tissue collapses while sleeping.
- The second one is known as central sleep apnea. In this case the airway is not blocked but the brain is not able to signal the muscles to breathe due to instability in the respiratory control center.
The sleep apnea is a disorder that can affect any person, regardless of the age.
There are many factors that can contribute to the occurrence of sleep apnea and the most common include having a family history of sleep apnea, being overweight, gastroesophageal reflux, being over the age of 40, being male and nasal obstructions due to allergies, deviated septum, and sinus problems.
