Learn More About CPAP Machines
Sleep apnea means that the person's breathing can stop while they are asleep. It can happen because their throat and tongue muscles will be more relaxed during sleep and the soft tissue can end up causing the airway to be blocked. This condition can be fatal and should be taken seriously. Someone with sleep apnea will be directed to begin using a CPAP machine by their physicians. CPAP stands for continuous positive airway pressure.
