Sleep apnea is a disorder wherein a person stops breathing for several seconds repeatedly during sleep. There are two kinds of sleep apnea: obstructive and and central. Obstructive apnea occurs when the throat muscles relax or momentarily collapse, obstructing the airway. Central sleep apnea alludes a possible cerebral problem as the brain doesn’t send signals to the muscles that control breathing.
