Short Communication on Obstructive Sleep Apnea

Obstructive sleep apnea is a severe sleep disorder. It causes breathing to stop and start repeatedly while you sleep.With sleep apnea, the muscles in your upper airway relax while you’re sleeping. This causes your airways to become blocked off, keeping you from getting enough air. This may cause your breathing to pause for 10 seconds or longer until your reflexes initiate br eathing to restart.You’re considered to have severe sleep apnea if your breathing stops and restarts more than 30 times an hour The apnea hypopnea index (AHI) measures obstructive sleep apnea to determine a range from mild to severe, based on the number of breathing pauses per hour you have while sleeping
