Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is a severe sleep disorder that causes ongoing disruptions in breathing while you sleep. There are a few types of sleep apnea, but OSA is the most common — and the most dangerous.
OSA causes the muscles in your throat to relax while you sleep, partially or entirely obstructing the flow of air into your lungs. Your diaphragm and chest muscles work harder to reopen the airway, causing a gasp or jerking motion.
This interrupted breathing pattern can repeat 30 or more times every hour while you sleep for 10 seconds or more.
