Obstructive Sleep Apnea is the most common classification of sleep apnea. It occurs when there is a collapse and subsequent blockage of an airway in the throat. This causes the sufferer to struggle with normal breathing patterns. This stoppage in breathing can lower blood oxygen levels, and can bring about other health complications such as mental impairment, heart attack and stroke.
