Connecting the World of Sleep Apnea Discover—Understand—Participate in your own care!
What is Sleep Apnea? Sleep Apnea is a common but serious sleep disorder. The muscles at the back of your throat relax too much so your airway becomes blocked. This prevents oxygen from entering your lungs so your breathing is stopped or there will be periods of shallow breathing. Both can last from a few seconds to a few minutes and may happen many times a night. When this happens, your body wakes you up to resume breathing although you may not realize it.
