This condition is caused by a blockage in the airways that stops breathing while patients sleep. Patients gasp for air and wake up, resulting in a cycle of waking and sleeping that can happen hundreds of times in one night. The condition can greatly impact one’s quality of life, so diagnosis and treatment are essential.

Deciding which one is right for you is a personal decision, and the choice is often made by taking into consideration several factors including the severity of the condition, the treatment option that best fits a patient’s lifestyle, and a patient’s budget.
