Obstructive Sleep Apnea
This is the most common type of sleep apnea. When there is an obstruction to the upper airway, it can cause breathing to stop for brief periods of time during the night. It's not uncommon for this to happen many, even hundreds of times in one night. If you sleep alone, you may not even be aware this is happening to you.
