Sleep Apnea in Lexington, MA

If your breathing is interrupted while you sleep, you may have a serious sleep disorder known as sleep apnea. People who have this condition and are undiagnosed are at risk for developing high blood pressure and also have an increased risk of heart failure and stroke. Dr. David Rosen offers sleep apnea treatment for patients in Lexington, MA who may be experiencing some of the common sleep apnea symptoms such as fatigue and drowsiness throughout the day.

Types of Sleep Apnea

There are two types of sleep apnea that patients need to be aware of: Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) and Central Sleep Apnea (CSA). OSA is the more common form of this condition and occurs when there is a blockage of the airway. This can happen when the soft tissues in the back of the throat collapse during sleep.

CSA is a condition when the brain stops sending signals to the muscles to breathe. This is a result of instability in the respiratory control center and may require medical intervention.
