What is Sleep Apnea?
Sleep apnea is a medical condition characterised by repeated pauses in breathing and/or shallow breathing during sleep. An apnoea is defined as complete cessation of breathing lasting 10 seconds or greater.
Sleep apnea can be classified into three categories. They are: Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA), Central Sleep Apnea (CSA), and Complex sleep apnea syndrome (CSAS).
