Types of Sleep Apnea

Sleep apnea is a breathing disorder characterized by brief interruptions of breathing during sleep. There are two types of sleep apnea:

·                     Central - occurs when the brain fails to send the appropriate signals to the muscles to initiate breathing. Central sleep apnea is less common than obstructive sleep apnea.

·                     Obstructive - occurs when air cannot flow into or out of the person's nose or mouth although efforts to breathe continue.
