Causes of Obstructive Sleep Apnea

Sleep apnea has different types; let’s see the causes for each type;

  • Obstructive sleep apnea happens when the muscles in the back of your throat relax. The soft palate, the triangular piece of tissue hanging from the soft palate (uvula), the tonsils, the sidewalls of the throat, and the tongue are all supported by these muscles. When you relax your muscles, your airway narrows or closes as you breathe in. You aren't getting enough oxygen in your blood because you aren't getting enough air. Your brain detects your inability to breathe and briefly wakes you up so you can reopen your airway.
  • Central sleep apnea is a less common type of sleep apnea in which your brain fails to send signals to your breathing muscles. This means that for a brief period of time, you make no effort to breathe. You may awaken with shortness of breath or have difficulty falling or staying asleep.

Preventive Measures of Obstructive Sleep Apnea

  • Avoid getting overweight or obese
  • Do not take stress while going to sleep
