Types of Obstructive Sleep Apnea Symptoms And Causes

When it comes to sleep apnea, this is a very complicated and serious breathing disorder that affects a big number of people. It could occur to people due to a number of medical reasons such as issues with brain’s function or heart. Sometimes it could also happen because the tissues at the back of airways collapse on each other thus making it hard to breathe while lying on back. Here are the 3 types of OSA (obstructive sleep apnea):

Obstructive Sleep Apnea

This is the most common type of sleep apnea and it is a result of the throat muscles at the back relaxing (actually collapsing on themselves) and creating a very small passageway for air and oxygen to the brain and body.

Central Sleep Apnea

Central Sleep Apnea is more closely linked with a problem with the brain, it occurs when asleep and brain is unable to send the proper signals to the rest of the body to breathe. This usually results in the body suddenly jerking awake from a danger signal sent by the brain in fear of the body dying.

Complex Sleep Apnea Syndrome

This condition is called complex because the ones who suffer from it actually suffer from OSA and CSA both.

Symptoms
  • Loud snoring is closely related to all sleep apnea disorders because of difficulty in breathing
  • Small periods of time where body stops breathing during sleep (this can be noticed by sleeping partner or notice when one wakes up gasping for breath)
  • Waking up with a dry mouth
  • Once you fall asleep it is hard for you to stay asleep. Your body and mind keeps waking up resulting in patchy sleep and intense tiredness during the day because of incomplete night sleep. This is usually termed as insomnia.
  • Sleeping during the day is also frequently viewed in sleep apnea patients. Hypersomnia basically is the result of incomplete night sleep and since day sleep doesn’t bring you the rest and refreshment of night sleep; the patient sleeps more and more.
  • Finding it difficult to pay attention to daily activities during the day
  • Getting irritated easily by small things

    I?m amazed, I have to admit. Rarely do I come across a blog that?s both
    educative and engaging, and let me tell you, you have hit the nail
    on the head. The issue is something too few folks are speaking intelligently about.

    I’m very happy that I came across this during
    my search for something concerning this.
