Sleep apnea - What happens?
A person with sleep apnea drifts off to sleep and during the night, the tongue, excess throat tissue, or relaxed throat muscles block the airway during sleep.
Breathing stops or is reduced for least 10 seconds. The body struggles for air, and the oxygen level in the blood drops.
The brain must then wake the individual , an arousal , to resume normal breathing for four or five breaths until the oxygen levels rise. The individual then falls back to sleep and the process can repeat itself many times throughout the night.
Someone suffering from sleep apnea should consider seeing a sleep doctor
