What is obstructive sleep apnea?
Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) is a condition in which breathing stops involuntarily for brief periods of time during sleep. This is normally due to the narrowing of the airway at the back of the throat. Periods when breathing stops are called apneas or apneic episodes.
