What Is Obstructive Sleep Apnea?
Obstructive sleep apnea, also known as OSA, is a sleeping disorder that occurs when the soft tissues and muscles in the back of your throat relax and block your airway while you sleep. With the airway blockage, it makes it difficult to maintain a normal breathing pattern which usually leads to intermittent pauses in breathing anywhere from 10 to 20 seconds at a time.
