What is Sleep Apnea?

Sleep apnea is a common condition and chronic disorder affecting millions. It causes people to repeatedly stop breathing while they are sleeping during the night. Each pause in breathing is called “apnea” – meaning “no breath”. This pause typically lasts 10 seconds or longer and happens regularly throughout the night. This causes a restless sleep and flow on conditions from not getting enough sleep.
