Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA)
Most common type of sleep apnea and is caused by complete or partial obstructions of the upper airway. It is characterized by repetitive episodes of shallow or paused breathing during sleep, despite the effort to breathe, and is usually associated with a reduction in blood oxygen saturation. The most common type of sleep apnea is caused by complete or partial upper airway obstruction. It is distinguished by repeated episodes of shallow or paused breathing during sleep, despite efforts to breathe, and is usually associated with a decrease in blood oxygen saturation. Sleep apnea is a sleeping disorder characterised by breathing pauses or periods of difficulty breathing while sleeping. This is most commonly associated with loud snoring. As breathing resumes, there may be a choking or snorting sound. Because it disrupts normal sleep, those who are affected are frequently sleepy or tired during the day. It can cause academic problems or hyperactivity in children. Obstructive (OSA), central (CSA), and a combination of the two are the three types of sleep apnea,Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), central sleep apnea (CSA), and a combination of the two. The most common type is OSA. Obesity, a family history of the condition, allergies, and enlarged tonsils are all risk factors for OSA. Breathing is interrupted in OSA due to a blockage of airflow, whereas breathing stops in CSA due to a lack of effort to breathe. People who suffer from sleep apnea are frequently unaware of their condition. It is frequently picked up by a family member. An overnight sleep study is commonly used to diagnose sleep apnea.
