The Causes of Sleep Apnea

There are three kinds of sleep apnea, which are classified by their cause:

Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) – The most common form of sleep apnea, OSA occurs when there are physical blockages of the breathing passageways

Central Sleep Apnea (CSA) – The rarest form of sleep apnea, CSA occurs when the feedback mechanisms of the brain function improperly, affecting a person’s breathing patterns.

Complex/Mixed Sleep Apnea – This type of sleep apnea is a mix of OSA and CSA.
