Sleep Disorder Center

Snoring or gasping while sleeping may be a sign of sleep apnea and may be why you are feeling tired during the day. More than 40 million Americans have sleep apnea and don’t even know it. Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is when you stop breathing or your breathing slows down too much while you are sleeping. This happens because the airway collapses and prevents air from getting into your lungs. Untreated sleep apnea can put you at risk for a number of serious health conditions. The goal is to help open up the airway and restore good sleep.
