Obstructive Sleep Apnea is defined as a blockage of airflow during sleep. This can happen due to a narrow or weak airway, the tongue falling into the back of the throat, or the jaw dropping as we reach a relaxed state of sleep. The most common indicators of Sleep Apnea are presence of snoring, pauses in breathing, or gasping for air while sleeping.
