Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is a serious disorder caused when your breathing is interrupted during sleep. It’s commonly caused when the soft tissues in the back of the throat collapse during sleep. It’s often marked by snoring.
People with OSA often feel sleepy during the day and sometimes are unable to concentrate. If left untreated, OSA can result in a number of health problems like high blood pressure, heart failure, and diabetes.
