Obstructive sleep apnoea is a relatively common condition where the wall surfaces of the throat relax and narrow throughout sleep, disturbing normal breathing. People with OSA might experience repeated episodes of apnoea and hypopnoea throughout the night. As lots of people with OSA experience episodes of both apnoea and hypopnoea, medical professionals occasionally refer to the problem as obstructive sleep apnoea-hypopnoea syndrome, or OSAHS. The term 'obstructive' distinguishes OSA from rarer forms of sleep apnoea, such as central sleep apnoea, which is caused by the brain not sending signals to the breathing muscle mass during sleep. Some people with OSA might additionally experience evening sweats and may get up frequently throughout the evening to pee.
