Sleep Apnea Irvine
Sleep ApneaSleep apnea is serious sleep disorder during which breathing starts and stops, repeatedly. It can have three different types:
- Obstructive sleep apnea - This is the most common form of the disorder. In this apnea occurs due to the relaxing of the throat muscles when the patient is asleep.
- Central sleep apnea - It happens when the brain does not send signals to muscles that control the breathing.
- Complex sleep apnea - It occurs when a patient suffers from both control and obstructive sleep apnea.
