What Is Sleep Apnoea?
Sleep apnoea is a condition that occurs when the airways that oxygen moves through become partially obstructed. The soft tissues inside of your mouth relax excessively, which results in the airways being blocked. As a result, you may snore loudly. You can wake up hundreds of times each night when your brain sends you a signal to do so due to a lack of oxygen. With sleep apnoea, you stop breathing completely. Hypoapnoea refers to severely restricted breathing.
