Definition

Under normal circumstances, the brain plays an important role in regulating one's breathing. Due to various reasons, this regulation is sometimes disturbed during sleep, thus causing abnormalities in the breathing pattern. Central sleep apnoea often presents with symptoms similar to obstructive sleep apnoea, except that it is not due to an obstruction.
