Sleep apnea is a disorder that commonly affects more than 12 million people in the United States. It takes its name from the Greek word apnea, which means "without breath." People with sleep apnea literally stop breathing repeatedly during their sleep, often for a minute or longer and as many as hundreds of times during a single night. Sleep apnea can be caused by either complete obstruction of the airway (obstructive apnea) or partial obstruction (obstructive hypopnea hypopnea is slow, shallow breathing), both of which can wake one up. There are three types of sleep apnea — obstructive, central, and mixed. Of these, obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is the most common. OSA occurs in approximately 2 percent of women and 4 percent of men over the age of 35. Causes The exact cause of OSA remains unclear. The site of obstruction in most patients is the soft palate, extending to the region at the base of the tongue. There are no rigid structures, such as cartilage or bone, in this area to hold the airway open. During the day, muscles in the region keep the passage wide open. But as a person with OSA falls asleep, these muscles relax to a point where the airway collapses and becomes obstructed. When the airway closes, breathing stops, and the sleeper awakens to open the airway. The arousal from sleep usually lasts only a few seconds, but brief arousals disrupt continuous sleep and prevent the person from reaching the deep stages of slumber, such as rapid eye movement (REM) sleep, which the body needs in order to rest and replenish its strength. Once normal breathing is restored, the person falls asleep only to repeat the cycle throughout the night.

Apnea, sleep apnea or obstructive sleep apnea are defined as " . . . the cessation of breathing for 10 or more seconds while asleep . . . " Obstructive Sleep Apnea
(showing a closed upper airway) Obstructive sleep apnea (obstructive sleep apnea) is cause by the closing of the upper airway while asleep. The uvula and soft pallet collapses on the back wall of the upper airway. Then the tongue falls backward, collapsing on the back wall of the upper airway, the uvula and soft pallet forming a tight blockage, preventing any air from entering the lungs. The effort of the diaphragm, the chest and the abdomen only cause the blockage to seal tighter. In order to breathe the person must arouse or awaken, causing tension in the tongue thereby opening the airway, allowing air to pass into the lungs.
(For a view of airway closure click here then use your BACK button to return.) Obstructive sleep apnea causes a drop in one's blood oxygen saturation (SaO2) and an increase in the blood's carbon dioxide (CO2). When the SaO2 drops the heart will start pumping more blood with each beat. If the SaO2 continues to drop the heart will start beating faster and faster. As the CO2 increases the brain will try to drive the person to breathe. The effort and action of the abdomen and chest will increase. Eventually that action can become severe enough to cause an arousal, clearing the upper airway blockage, allowing the person to breathe. Then you go back to sleep and it happens all over again.

Sleep apnea can cause depression
Sleep apnea can cause symptoms of apparent clinical depression which may respond quickly to treatment of the sleep disorder. A knowledge of the intellectual and emotional impact of sleep apnea may be important in making a correct differential diagnosis. Unfortunately, many physicians, psychiatrists, and psychologists may be unaware of this connection which may lead to apparent symptoms of depression. If there is a possibility that a patient's depression is caused by sleep apnea, they should undergo evaluation and, if necessary, receive treatment for their sleep disorder. In addition, people with sleep apnea may need support in addressing emotional aspects of treatment and recovery. Informed, trained therapists can provide essential therapy and support to the patient and the patient's family in the recovery process.
The invisible epidemic of sleep apnea and snoring
The impact of sleep apnea and snoring on sleep and health in the individual and for the public should not be ignored. According the National Commission on Sleep Disorders Research: "Forty million Americans are chronically ill with various sleep disorders...Sleep apnea alone is the cause of excessive daytime sleepiness experienced by almost 20 million Americans... Overwhelming evidence from testimony and specific surveys suggests that the vast majority of Americans with sleep disorders remain undiagnosed and untreated. ... " (

Overview of Obstructive Sleep Apnea
Approximately 30 million Americans are victims of a sleep disorder called obstructive sleep apnea . Many millions more are predisposed and have a high risk of developing the illness. If you are an adult male, the odds are about 50/50 that your breathing is not normal when you are sleeping. It is imperative that anyone who might have this problem or is predisposed, or knows someone they care about who has the problem, should have the clearest possible understanding about it.
We have dedicated this section of the web site to a crystal clear and detailed description of all aspects of obstructive sleep apnea. The section begins with an overview which will introduce the reader to this important sleep disorder. During the next several weeks we will be providing you with a more in-depth understanding of obstructive sleep apnea. Please check back to this section to view upcoming segments.

  • Who the heck are you?
    My name is Doug Linder. I'm just some guy with apnoea. It's easier to tell you what I am not:
    • Most importantly, I am NOT a doctor. I do not keep lists of doctors, specialists, equipment companys, or anything like that. I can't recommend doctors or brands of CPAP machines. Sorry. I don't have a folderful of secret "cures" for apnoea that I keep away from everyone else just out of spite. The minute I hear of a new potential treatment, I put it up here. I'm not highly connected to the field of sleep medicine. Yes, I have met a few nice folks in the industry, and some of them are indeed doctors. But they don't give free, anonymous, undiagnosed medical advice over the internet, either.

The most common kind of sleep apnea is called Obstructive Sleep Apnea Syndrome. Sleep apnea means "cessation of breath." It is characterized by repetitive episodes of upper airway obstruction that occur during sleep, usually associated with a reduction in blood oxygen saturation. In other words, the airway becomes obstructed at several possible sites. The upper airway can be obstructed by excess tissue in the airway, large tonsils, a large tongue and usually includes the airway muscles relaxing and collapsing when asleep. Another site of obstruction can be the nasal passages. Sometimes the structure of the jaw and airway can be a factor in sleep apnea. What are the symptoms?
    • excessive daytime sleepiness
    • frequent episodes of obstructed breathing during sleep. (The patient may be unaware of this symptom usually the bed partner is extremely aware of this).
    Associated features may include:
    • loud snoring
    • morning headaches
    • unrefreshing sleep
    • a dry mouth upon awakening
    • chest retraction during sleep in young children (chest pulls in)

    Hurricane Katina victims with apnea get help
    In just the first 30 hours following Hurricane Katrina's landfall, Awake In America received more than a dozen calls for assistance in replacing equipment of individuals who left their now water-filled homes under emergency conditions. Some of these individuals left their homes in New Orleans, as instructed, under the mandatory evacuation orders. Many people thought Hurricane Katrina would be like past hurricanes, and that they'd be home in several hours. With that thinking, they left their belongings and CPAP equipment behind. Read the story from Awake In America.
