OBSTRUCTIVE SLEEP APNEA (OSA):

Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) is a potentially serious disorder characterized by the involuntary cessation of breathingvthat occurs during sleep. Several types of sleep apnea exist, but the most common type is obstructive sleep apnea,vwhich occurs when the throat muscles intermittently relax and block the airway during sleep. The breathing stoppages reduce oxygen levels and trigger “micro-arousals” that disrupt sleep quality. Approximately 25 million adults in the U.S. suffer from Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA), which can cause them to stop breathing hundreds of times per night for just a few seconds or more than a minute.
