What is sleep apnea?
Nearly 20 million people in America are affected by sleep apnea — and most don’t realize they have it. Sleep apnea occurs when you briefly stop breathing while sleeping. There are many possible causes, including a collapsed airway or poor circulation.
Sleep apnea leads to a person waking up dozens or even hundreds of times every night, often with no memory of doing so.
