Obstructive sleep apnea is a common sleep disorder characterised by repeated interruptions in breathing throughout the sleep cycle.
These interruptions, called apneas, are caused by the collapse of soft tissue in the airway, which prevents oxygen from reaching the lungs. Sleep apnea can have a serious impact on energy, mental performance, and long-term health—but there are effective treatments available to counteract these symptoms.*
