Obstructive Sleep Apnoea (OSA) occurs when a person's airway closes over during sleep. This leads to a drop in oxygen levels and a brief awakening. This can happen many times each hour. It can leave a person sleepy during the day and therefore be at higher risk of driving or other accidents. There is some evidence that having sleep apnoea increases the risk of diabetes, heart attack or stroke. OSA can be treated.
