What Is Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA)?

Obstructive sleep apnea is when a person stops breathing during sleep. Normally while you sleep, the muscles that control the tongue and soft palate keep the upper airway open, and air moves in and out of the lungs. If these muscles relax, the airway becomes narrower or completely blocked. This blockage causes snoring and prevents air movement in and out of the lungs. This is obstructive sleep apnea.

Often people who suffer from obstructive sleep apnea are unaware of the problem. A family member and/or bed partner may notice the signs of sleep apnea first. If your partner shows any of the signs of obstructive sleep apnea you should persuade them to see their physician. Obstructive sleep apnea is a serious health problem that needs medical attention.

Signs and Symptoms of Obstructive Sleep Apnea

The following signs and symptoms are commonly associated with obstructive sleep apnea:

  • Loud snoring, interrupted by pauses in breathing
  • Excessive daytime sleepiness
  • Gasping or choking during sleep
  • Restless sleep
  • Mental confusion
  • Irritability
  • Hypertension
  • Nocturnal angina
  • Depression
  • Obesity
  • Sexual dysfunction

You'll Feel the Benefits of CPAP Therapy

To experience the benefits of CPAP therapy, you should use your CPAP machine every time you go to sleep and during any scheduled nap. If you are not consistent with the regular use of the CPAP machine, your symptoms will reoccur. The following is a partial list of the benefits of CPAP therapy once you have committed to the treatment plan:

  • Elimination of snoring and abnormal breathing events
  • Increased energy
  • Restful sleep
  • Improved quality of life
  • Feeling rested during the day
  • Reduced risk of high blood pressure, heart disease, heart attack, and stroke
