Sleep apnea is a potentially serious sleep disorder in which breathing repeatedly stops and starts. You may have sleep apnea if you snore loudly, and you feel tired even after a full night's sleep. Sleep apnea occurs when the muscles in the back of your throat relax. These muscles support the soft palate, the triangular piece of tissue hanging from the soft palate (uvula), the tonsils, the side walls of the throat and the tongue. When the muscles relax, your airway narrows or closes as you breathe in, and you can't get an adequate breath in. This may lower the level of oxygen in your blood. Your brain senses this inability to breathe and briefly wakes you from sleep so that you can reopen your airway. This awakening is usually so brief that you don't remember it. If your physician has diagnosed you with sleep apnea, they may prescribe CPAP therapy.
CPAP stands for Continuous Positive Airway Pressure. CPAP therapy is considered the "gold standard" for treating sleep apnea. A CPAP machine pressurizes air that is delivered through a special delivery system that utilizes a mask. This system holds a motorized fan that draws air from a room, gently pressurizes it, then delivers it at the prescribed settings. The CPAP was developed to help prevent the collapses that happen during a sleep apnea episode. By helping to keep the airway firm and open, the pressurized air provides the support necessary for the user to breathe freely and without obstructions.
