Obstructive Sleep Apnea

 

Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) involves repeated arousals from sleep because breathing ceases when the upper airway for breathing is momentarily obstructed. OSA patients may be so sleep-deprived that they their mental functions are significantly impaired and they may become a hazard to themselves or others. OSA is also associated with hypertension and heart disease.
