Sleep Apnea is a respiratory disorder characterized by the temporary interruption of breathing in sleep for more than 10 seconds. The terms SAHS or OSAS are often used to refer to this type of pathology.
- If it is a respiratory reduction, we are referring to hypopnea
- If it is respiratory detention, it’s called apnea.
These breathing pauses of more than 10 seconds, can be repeated 5 to 30 times per hour. In cases where there are more than 30 repetitions per hour, it is considered severe apnea.
Sleep Apnea and Hypoapnea Syndrome (SAHS) is a very common pathology and according to the latest studies it affects more than 25% of the population.
During the night
Some of the most common symptoms during the night are loud or frequent snoring, silent pauses in breathing, choking or gasping sounds, abnormal motor activity, sleep interruption, nocturia (waking during the night to go to the bathroom), gastroesophageal refluxes, sweating, convulsions, and insomnia.
During the day & other problems
Fatigue, bad mood, impatience and irritability, memory deficit, intellectual impairment, concentration difficulties, somnolence, headache, impotency, decreased libido, mouth dryness, voice alterations.
Other problems that may occur: depression, hyperactive behaviour (especially in children), arterial hypertension, leg swelling, coronary heart disease, chronic diurnal hypoventilation.
One of the major risk factors for sleep apnea is excess body weight. People are much more likely to develop sleep apnea if they are overweight or obese. However, sleep apnea can occur in people without weight problems as well.
Other common risk factors for sleep apnea include: Having a short underjaw, having certain palate or respiratory path shapes, a big neck and/or tongue, big amygdala or frequent face-up sleeping.
