When you have sleep apnea, your breathing is frequently blocked or partially blocked while you are asleep. The severity of the issue depends on how frequently your lungs aren't getting enough air. 5 to 30 or more times an hour are possible for this to occur.
The most typical type of sleep apnea, obstructive sleep apnea, is the focus of this discussion.
People who have had a stroke, heart failure, are on certain medications (such as opioids), have a brain tumour, or have an infection can develop central sleep apnea, a less common form of apnea. Despite the fact that central sleep apnea isn't the subject of this discussion, some of the methods outlined here may be used to treat it. You can learn more about central sleep apnea by speaking with your doctor.
