With more than one billion people suffering from sleep apnea, it has become one of the major disorders in recent times. Sleep Apnea is a potential sleep disorder characterized by the repeated intermittent block of breathing during sleep for a few seconds. Three types of sleep apnea are reported namely obstructive, central and mixed. Of which, Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) is the common type resulting from airway obstruction due to which the breathing is blocked for at least ten seconds.
In 2007, the World Health Organization (WHO) estimated the OSA to be over 100 million, but the numbers have significantly increased in recent times. In the US, sleep apnea is considered one of the major disorders where the average sleeping hours during night time is not more than 6 hours. Approximately 22.5% of women and more than 45% of men suffer from sleep apnea problems wherein 1 in 12 individuals report for obstructive sleep apnea. The prevalence of OSA occurs in about 26% of the adult population between 30 and 65 years and around 2-4% of the children aged 2-8 years. OSA also increases the occurrence of cardiac co-morbidities including heart failure by more than 100%, stroke by more than 50% and CAD by more than 25%. Also, there are high chances of developing psychological comorbidities such as anxiety, depression, bipolar disorders, etc.
