Obstructive Sleep Apnea Syndrome (OSA)

OSA is the most common type of sleep apnea and is initiated by complete or partial obstructions of the upper airway. It is categorized by repetitive episodes of shallow or paused breathing during sleep, despite the effort to breathe, and is usually associated with a reduction in blood oxygen saturation. It is commonly accompanied with snoring. Some use the terms obtrusive sleep apnea syndrome or obstructive sleep apnea–hypopnea syndrome to refer to OSA which is associated with symptoms during the daytime. Indications may be present for years or even decades without identification, during which time the individual may become conditioned to the daytime sleepiness and fatigue associated with significant levels of sleep disturbance. Persons who generally sleep alone are often unaware of the condition, without a regular bed-partner to notice and make them aware of their symptoms.
