Sleep apnea is a sleep disorder characterized by repeated interruptions in breathing during sleep. There are two primary types: obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), where the airway is blocked by relaxation of throat muscles, and central sleep apnea, where the brain doesn’t signal the muscles to breathe. Complex sleep apnea syndrome, a combination of the two, is also recognized. Sleep apnea can disrupt sleep, leading to various consequences.
Symptoms and Impact:
Psychological support is crucial for individuals with sleep apnea, as it can be emotionally distressing. Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) can help address psychological symptoms, improve adherence to treatment, and enhance overall well-being. Diagnosis and treatment should be guided by a healthcare provider specializing in sleep disorders.
