What Is Sleep Apnoea?

Sleep apnoea is a potentially serious sleep condition that occurs when the airways that oxygen moves through become partially blocked. The soft tissues inside of your mouth relax greatly, which results in the airways being obstructed. As a result, you may snore loudly. For someone with sleep apnoea, breathing stops repeatedly. A sufferer may wake up hundreds of times a night. That’s because the brain sends a signal to do so due to a lack of oxygen.
