If you have sleep apnoea, the walls of your throat collapse during sleep, obstructing the upper airway. Your breathing is temporarily blocked, for a period of up to sixty seconds. Once the brain registers the lack of breathing, it sends a small wake-up signal to arouse you and open your upper airways. Returning to sleep is almost immediate with the incident not usually remembered the next morning.
This cycle may repeat itself numerous times each night causing fragmented sleep and awakening fatigued and unrefreshed.
