Obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA) is a sleep related breathing disorder that is characterised by partial or complete blockage of the upper airway during sleep. This may result in stopping to breathe during sleep, which usually interferes with the sleep cycle.
This can then present as excessive daytime sleepiness, snoring, morning headaches and high blood pressure.
