Sleep apnea (AP-ne-ah) is a common disorder in which you have one or more pauses in breathing or shallow breaths while you sleep. Breathing pauses can last from a few seconds to minutes and as a result, the quality of your sleep is poor which makes you tired during the day. Sleep apnea is a leading cause of excessive daytime sleepiness.

Sleep apnea is a chronic condition that requires long-term management. Untreated, obstructive sleep apnea can cause high blood pressure and other cardiovascular diseases, memory problems, weight gain, sexual dysfunction and headaches.
Fortunately, lifestyle changes, mouthpieces, surgery, and breathing devices can successfully treat sleep apnea in many people.
