Sleep Apnea: Diagnosis And Treatment Options
Sleep apnea is a sleep-related breathing disorder characterized by pauses in breathing or shallow breathing during sleep, which may result in reduced blood oxygen levels. The most common type of sleep apnea is obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), where the airway collapses and blocks airflow during sleep. OSA often affects men more often than women and can significantly disrupt sleep. Read on to learn more about sleep apnea and the common treatment options.
