Sleep apnea is a respiratory disorder that causes pauses in people’s breathing while they sleep. Breathing can stop for ten to 30 seconds or more, in excess of ten times per hour. Each time a person’s breathing stops, sleep is disrupted. The health consequences can be serious. In addition to quality of life issues, patients can run an increased risk of cardiovascular and metabolic diseases.
