What Is Sleep Apnea?

Sleep apnea is a relatively common but potentially serious condition that affects one’s breathing while sleeping.  Sleep apnea is usually caused by obstructions in breathing passages; these obstructions can cause decreased oxygen flow to the lungs, shallow breathing, snoring, and pauses in the breathing.  (Sleep apnea can also be caused by failure of the brain to send correct signals to the muscles involved in breathing.)
