Below, two sleep disorder experts offer an introduction to sleep apnea, its diagnosis, and treatment options. What is sleep apnea?
DANIEL WAGNER, MD: "Apnea" means "without breath." And sleep apnea is a type of "without breath" that occurs only during sleep. The majority of cases are obstructive, where the throat back behind your tongue literally gets sucked closed by the chest as it's trying to pull air through it. That's because the muscles of the throat have relaxed enough when you're asleep to allow that to happen. It would never happen while you were awake you would choke and know it immediately. That goes on for 10, 20, 30, sometimes 60 seconds. The efforts of the chest finally wake the person up briefly, usually without their knowing it. They breathe a few times and get their oxygen levels back up, and then as they fall back into light sleep, the whole business happens again.

Why it happens
Sleep apnea is a serious sleep disorder in which the upper airway passages are blocked repeatedly during the night. It's often caused by enlarged adenoids (glands in the throat just behind the nose) and tonsils; when your child's muscles relax at night, these oversized glands can temporarily block air from getting to his lungs. Other causes of airway blockages include frequent illness ( ear infections sore throats , and tonsilitis allergies The list of symptoms for sleep apnea is long. The most telling signs are snoring and sweats profusely while asleep. Combined with any of the above symptoms, repeated night-wakings can be a sign of sleep apnea. Because they have trouble breathing, children with sleep apnea may stir more often, waking up to get the air they need. If you think your toddler might have sleep apnea but aren't sure, you can look to his daytime behavior for more clues. Children with apnea are often

Sleep Apnea
Sleep apnea is described as the cessation of breathing during sleep. What is actually occurring is the intermittent and repetitive closure of the airway druing sleep. This begins a vicious circle of events. The patient falls asleep, the airway closes. Then in response to closure and the need to breathe, the brain wakes up briefly, the patient breathes; the brain retruns to sleep and the circle begins again. These events may occur hundreds of times across the night resulting in severely fragmented sleep, poor oxygenation and daytime sleepiness. The corrective treatment most often used is nasal CPAP. This is a tight fitting mask, connected via a flexible tubing to an air pump. This allows a positive pressure of air to splint the airway open. The patient breathes well, sleeps well and shortly is no longer sleepy. Other treatment options include: ENT surgery, weight loss, position changes, and dental appliances. If you choose surgery or dental appliance, it is important to note that the symptom of snoring may be corrected but apnea may remain. Always see your sleep specialist for followup which may include another sleep study.

Sleep Science Editor It is estimated that a large portion of sleep disorders have gone undiagnosed in the general population. Sleep disorders have a negative effect on physical and mental performance. The most common form of sleep disorder is sleep apnoea and may affect up to 10% of the general population. This condition is most prevalent in the population of men over the age of 30. Could you suffer from sleep apnea? High rate of respiratory infection, dry mouth on waking, frequent night time awakenings, intense dreaming, gagging, snoring daytime sleepiness and morning headaches are all symptoms of sleep apnea.

Obstructive sleep apnea
Definition: Sleep apnea is a condition characterized by episodes where a person's breathing stops while sleeping. See also sleep disorders
Alternative Names: Obstructive sleep apnea syndrome; Sleep apnea syndrome; Sleep apnea
Causes, incidence, and risk factors: In normal conditions, the muscles of the upper part of the throat keep this passage open to allow air to flow into the lungs. These muscles usually relax during sleep, but the passage remains open enough to permit the flow of air. Some individuals have a narrower passage, and during sleep, relaxation of these muscles causes the passage to close, and air cannot get into the lungs. Loud snoring and labored breathing occur. When complete blockage of the airway occurs, air cannot reach the lungs. For reasons that are still unclear, in deep sleep, breathing can stop for a period of time (often more than 10 seconds). These periods of lack of breathing, or apneas, are followed by sudden attempts to breathe. These attempts are accompanied by a change to a lighter stage of sleep. The result is fragmented sleep that is not restful, leading to excessive daytime

What is sleep apnea?
People with sleep apnea stop breathing for 10 to 30 seconds at a time while they are sleeping. These short stops in breathing can happen up to 400 times every night! If you have sleep apnea, the periods of not breathing may make you wake up from deep sleep. If you are waking up all night long, you aren't getting enough rest from your sleep. There are two kinds of sleep apnea: obstructive apnea and central apnea. Obstructive sleep apnea is the most common type. Nine out of 10 people with sleep apnea have this type of apnea. If you have obstructive apnea, something is blocking the passage or windpipe (called the trachea) that brings air into your body. You keep trying to breathe, but you can't get enough air because of the blockage. Your windpipe might be blocked by your tongue, tonsils or uvula (the little piece of flesh that hangs down in the back of your throat). It might also be blocked by a large amount of fatty tissue in the throat or even by relaxed throat muscles. Central sleep apnea is rare. This type is called central apnea because it is related to the function of the central nervous system. If you have this type of apnea, the muscles you use to breathe don't get the "go-ahead" signal from your brain. Either the brain doesn't send the signal, or the signal gets interrupted.
