Sleep Disordered Breathing

The most common form of sleep disordered breathing is Obstructive Sleep Apnea Syndrome, or OSA. Sleep apnea is a condition where a patient will stop breathing repeatedly during periods of sleep, resulting in fragmented unrefreshing sleep. Sleep apnea is usually associated with loud snoring or snorting. Jerking of arms and legs may be noticed by a bed partner and the patient may awaken short of breath or with heart pounding. Patients with sleep apnea are often unaware of their problem and have frequent arousals/awakenings caused by the pauses in breathing. Untreated sleep apnea usually results in excessive daytime sleepiness and may contribute to high blood pressure, cardiac problems, depression and sexual dysfunction.

In addition to obstructive sleep apnea, sleep disordered breathing may also be related to central or mixed apneas upper respiratory resistance syndrome, or asthma related sleep breathing problems.
