Abstract

Sleep disordered breathing reflects a spectrum of disorders ranging from simple or habitual aesthetic snoring, to Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) of varying severity. All of these entities result from increased upper airway resistance due to the summation of static and dynamic narrowing of any number of anatomical subsides in the upper aero digestive tract, including the nose, nasopharynx, retropalatal oropharynx, pharyngeal tonsil region, and retrolingual oropharynx
