Sleep Apnoea is a common sleep disorder and is characterised by abnormal pauses in breathing during sleep. These breathing pauses may last up to a minute and may occur multiple times every hour. With each breathing pause oxygen levels are reduced and at the end of the pause the person momentarily wakes from sleep to begin breathing again. Learn more about this disorder.
