What is Sleep Apnea?
Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is a common but serious medical condition that leads to trouble breathing during sleep. It is caused by the collapse of the airway in the back of the nose, mouth and throat during sleep. When this happens, the brain and organs become oxygen deprived which may cause poor quality and quantity sleep.
