Dr. Richard E. Klein from the Michigan Head & Neck Institute – OSA, the most common type of sleep apnea, occurs when air cannot flow into or out of the persons nose or mouth, although efforts to breathe continue. In a given night, the number of involuntary breathing pauses or apneic events may be as high as 20 to 60 or more per hour. Snoring and choking between apneic events is common, although not everyone who snores has OSA.
