Types of sleep apnea

Sleep apnea is of two types

  • Obstructive sleep apnea:This is due to complete or partial upper airway blockage.
  • Central sleep apnea: In this, the airway is not blocked, but the brain fails to signal the muscles to breathe due to instability in the respiratory control center.

Who are at risk?

  • Overweight older men and women.
  • Those with nose block due to deviated septum or polyps
  • Children with chronic adenotonsilitis

When a person is suspected for sleep apnea,we typically advise a CT scan, dynamic MRI, an overnight sleep study which is done in a hospital. However, we provide an overnight sleep study at the comfort of your house (based on your location and our availability at your location). There are surgical and non-surgical ways to manage sleep apnea.
