What happens in people with Obstructive Sleep Apnea?
The soft tissue at the back of the throat relaxes during sleep, lack of muscle tone and gravity then cause the airway to narrow resulting in vibration to cause snoring. If the airway continues to collapse an obstruction follows causing an apnoea. FAQs
