Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is a specific type of sleep-disordered breathing. When someone has OSA, the airway is blocked during sleep, preventing the passage of air and leading to pauses in breathing.
If you think you may have OSA, talk to your healthcare provider. They may recommend treatments such as Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP).
