Three Types of Sleep Apnea
There are three types of sleep apnea Harbor Point Dental Group wants you to be aware of. Obstructive sleep apnea is the most common form and occurs when throat muscles relax. Central sleep apnea occurs when your brain doesn’t send proper signals to the muscles that control breathing. Complex sleep apnea Syndrome, also known as treatment-emergent central sleep apnea, occurs when someone has both obstructive and central sleep apnea.
Loud snoring and a drop in your blood oxygen level can occur if the air flow into your lungs is blocked. The timeframe of this disorder may impact an individual 30 or more times per hour. Sleep apnea may be noticed by a family member if they see a pause in breathing that can last for few seconds, or even minutes.
