What is Sleep Apnea?
Snoring is often caused by changes in your upper airway while you sleep. Your airway may narrow, limiting air flow as you breathe and sleep. Our soft tissue may vibrate (commonly known as snoring), or it may completely collapse, causing you to stop breathing. Collapsing of the soft tissue is called Obstructive Apnea and may last 10-seconds or more. Your airway may even move through all three stages during the night
