Sleep apnea can cause a person to stop breathing for ten seconds or more while sleeping. This issue interrupts the sleep cycle because the person is awakened from sleep to get the body to breathe again. Though it is a common sleep disorder, it increases the risk of heart attack, stroke and other health conditions. The most common type of sleep apnea is obstructive sleep apnea, which occurs due to blockage of the airway during sleep. The potential sign of obstructive sleep apnea is loud and disruptive snoring.
