What Is Obstructive Sleep Apnea?
Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is a common problem that affects a person’s breathing during sleep. A person with OSA has times during sleep when air cannot flow normally into the lungs. The block in airflow (obstruction) is usually caused by the collapse of the soft tissues in the back of the throat (upper airway) and tongue during sleep. It is characterized by pauses in breathing or periods of shallow breathing during sleep.
