Sleep apnea is a potentially serious sleep disorder in which breathing repeatedly stops and starts. You may be a victim of sleep apnea if you snore loudly or feel tired even after a full night's sleep.
The main types of sleep apnea are:
Obstructive sleep apnea. This is the more common form of apnea that occurs when throat muscles relax
Central sleep apnea. This occurs when your brain doesn't send proper signals to the muscles that control breathing
Complex sleep apnea syndrome. This apnea occurs when someone has both obstructive sleep apnea and central sleep apnea
