The Story of a Sleep Apnea Victim
My husband, Norman, often fell asleep watching television, and the kids snickered. "Dad's getting old," my daughter would whisper. But Dad wasn't really old. In his early fifties, he was much too young to be sleeping his life away. As the malady became worse, he'd fall asleep a dozen times a day, even in the middle of a sentence. He often fell asleep while driving, creating a danger to himself and to others. If I were there, I'd nudge him with my elbow or shout to wake him up. Several times, however, he was alone and he landed in the ditch.

We all breath at a rate of 10-20 times a minute without conscious effort.

What Is Sleep Apnea? People with untreated sleep apnea stop breathing repeatedly during their sleep, sometimes hundreds of times during the night and often for a minute or longer. The most common symptoms of sleep apnea are loud snoring and excessive daytime sleepiness. The frequent interruptions of deep, restorative sleep often leads to excessive daytime sleepiness and may be associated with an early morning headache. Sleep apnea is very common and affects more than twelve million Americans, according to the National Institutes of Health. Risk factors include being male, overweight, and over the age of forty, but sleep apnea can strike anyone at any age, even children.

Facts About...Sleep Apnea
What Is Sleep Apnea? Sleep apnea is a serious, potentially life-threatening condition that is far more common than generally understood. First described in 1965, sleep apnea is a breathing disorder characterized by brief interruptions of breathing during sleep. It owes its name to a Greek word, apnea, meaning "want of breath." There are two types of sleep apnea: central and obstructive. Central sleep apnea, which is less common, occurs when the brain fails to send the appropriate signals to the breathing muscles to initiate respirations. Obstructive sleep apnea is far more common and occurs when air cannot flow into or out of the person's nose or mouth although efforts to breathe continue. In a given night, the number of involuntary breathing pauses or "apneic events" may be as high as 20 to 30 or more per hour. These breathing pauses are almost always accompanied by snoring between apnea episodes, although not everyone who snores has this condition. Sleep apnea can also be characterized by choking sensations. The frequent interruptions of deep, restorative sleep often lead to early morning headaches and excessive daytime sleepiness.

Obstructive Sleep Apnea and DS
by Dr. Len Leshin, MD, FAAP
Apnea (literally, "without breath") is the term used when someone stops breathing for very short periods of time, usually 10 to 20 seconds. It's termed "obstructive" when respiratory efforts continue, such as movements of the chest. It's termed "central" when all respiratory effort stops. There is also a mixed version. In children, sleep apnea is almost always obstructive. During the apneic episode, the child will have decreased oxygenation of the blood. Symptoms of Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) are: snoring, restless/disturbed sleep, frequent partial or total wakenings and daytime mouth breathing. Some children with OSA have odd sleep positions, often with their neck bent backwards, or even in a sitting position. Some children with OSA sweat profusely during sleep. In adults, there is an association of obesity, but that's not a common association in children. Some children will have daytime grumpiness or sleepiness, but it's not common. Some children may have noisy swallowing as well. Children with Down syndrome (DS) are certainly at risk for OSA. In 1991, one study showed 45% had OSA. This can be caused by several different factors present in DS: the flattened midface, narrowed nasopharyngeal area, low tone of the muscles of the upper airway and enlarged adenoids and/or tonsils.

Sleep Apnea
What is sleep apnea?
Sleep apnea is a serious sleep problem. If you have it, you stop breathing for more than 10 seconds at a time many times while you sleep. Another term for this problem is obstructive sleep apnea. Sleep apnea affects between 2 and 10% of people. It is more common in men than in women. It is also more common in people who are overweight, but there are many people with normal weight who have sleep apnea.
How does it occur?
During normal sleep, throat muscles relax. If, when this happens, there is too little room inside your throat, or too much tissue pressing on the outside of your throat, your airway can become blocked. This blockage stops the movement of air and the amount of oxygen in your blood drops. The drop in oxygen causes the brain to send a signal for you to wake up so that you open up the airway in your throat and start breathing again. If you have sleep apnea, this cycle may repeat as often as 50 or more times an hour. Generally you will not remember waking up but the many arousals will make you sleepy the next day.

Individuals who snore may also suffer from obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS) . Snoring is not sleep apnea, and sleep apnea is not snoring.
(See End of this page for more information on UCI's Center for Snoring and Sleep Disorders) (It is important to understand the difference between Snoring and Sleep Apnea, because an individual may be afflicted with one, or the other, or both.) Tired during the day? Tired of a poor night's sleep? Want to go from this to this? Individuals who snore may also suffer from obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS). There are a variety of treatments for each disorder, and our Department has had extensive experience in treating patients who suffer from both kinds of sleep disorders. Many people snore. It has been estimated that anywhere from 30 - 50% of the United States population snore at some time or another. Significant snoring is sometimes described as "heroic" snoring, in which the snoring loudness may be heard more than two bedrooms away. Such snoring may cause several problems: Marital Discord
Sleep disturbances (from spousal prodding)
Waking episodes (from one's own snoring)
Frequent association with OSAS Snoring is not sleep apnea, and sleep apnea is not snoring. Snoring is a social problem, as indicated above, and may be associated with significant sleep disturbance, waking episodes, etc. without OSAS. However, many patients with loud snoring do have significant obstructive sleep apnea.
