Sleep Apnea

The Greek word "apnea" literally means "without breath." Sleep apnea is an involuntary
cessation of breathing that occurs while the patient is asleep. 

Three types of sleep apnea:


Obstructive, Central, and Mixed. Of the three, obstructive sleep apnea, often called OSA for short, is the most common.


Obstructive sleep apnea (the most common cause of sleep apnea) is caused by a blockage of the airway, usually when the soft tissue in the rear of the throat collapses and closes during sleep.

Central sleep apnea,  the airway is not blocked but the brain fails to signal the muscles to breathe. 

Mixed sleep apnea, as the name implies, is a combination of the two. With each apnea event, the brain rouses the sleeper, usually only partially, to signal breathing to resume.

Sleep Apnea Devices Lower Blood Pressure

12/1/2015 HealthDay Reporter

For those suffering from sleep apnea, the disrupted sleep and reduction of oxygen getting to the brain can contribute to high blood pressure, but the two common treatments for the condition both lower blood pressure, Swiss researchers report.

A comparison of the treatments -- continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) and mandibular advancement devices (MADs) -- showed that each produces a modest reduction in both systolic and diastolic blood pressure rates, the researchers found.

"CPAP and MADs not only reduce symptoms of obstructive sleep apnea such as sleepiness, but also lower blood pressure," said lead researcher Dr. Malcolm Kohler, chair of respiratory medicine at the University Hospital of Zurich.
