Two Types Of Conditions & Treatment

There are basically two types of this general condition, obstructive sleep apnea and central sleep apnea. Obstructive sleep apnea is more common. Soft tissue blockage of the airway is typically the cause of obstructive sleep apnea, whereas central sleep apnea is caused by problems affecting the brainstem, which controls breathing. Diseases, such as Parkinson’s disease, and some medications may initiate the central form.

Treatment for sleep apnea will vary depending on the type and severity of the condition. Lifestyle changes, such as losing weight, stopping smoking or sleeping on your side instead of your back, may help. Snoring treatment may include dental devices worn during sleep that help keep the airway open.
