You may be wondering what sleep apnea even is. Sleep apnea can be divided into three different types: obstructive, central, and mixed. Central sleep apnea is caused by misfires in communication from the brain; if your sleep apnea is found to be central, you’ll need to seek treatment from a specialist in neurological disorders. However, we can help you with obstructive sleep apnea, which also happens to be the most common type of sleep apnea. Obstructive sleep apnea involves the obstruction of the airway by the structures in the mouth or throat. This obstruction can cause long pauses in breathing lasting 10 seconds or even longer, and as you gasp to get airflow back, you’ll disrupt the deepest sleep stages. That’s why sleep apnea lessens the quality of your sleep, even if it doesn’t wake you completely.
