AtObstructive sleep apnea and hypopnea syndrome, there is a barrier to the passage of air, usually due to the closing or collapse of the tracheal wall or another part of the airway. This leads to the production of loud noise when sleeping (snoring), night awakenings and great difficulty in maintaining sleep.


Prolonged periods of apnea, especially when maintained for a long time, lead to poor cerebral oxygenation and, consequently, to progressive symptoms of:

> Morning Headache
> forgetfulness
> Irritability
> Daytime sleepiness

The biggest loss of a bad night's sleep is thedaytime sleepinesswhich can limit work activities and even leisure time.
