Sleep apnea is a breathing disorder in which one or more pauses or shallow breathing occurs while sleeping. The airway is either narrow, causing disruptive snoring, or completely obstructed (obstructive sleep apnea), causing the sleeper to gasp and wake up fully or partially. Pauses can occur 1 to 100 times a night, and usually go unnoticed by the sleeper without a bed partner.
- Daytime sleepiness
- Snoring or gasping
- Waking up out of breath
