Definition

The upper airways may sometimes be obstructed by various structures, including the tongue, during sleep. This may lead to disrupted sleep and lack of oxygen. Patients with this condition experience severe sleepiness during the day, and snoring during the night.

Treatment and drugs

Sleep studies are necessary. Donning breathing masks during the night is usually effective.
