Sleep apnea

An intermittent cessation of airflow at the mouth and nose during sleep. Apneas of at least 10 seconds are considered important, but persons with sleep apnea may have apneas of 20 seconds to up to 2 or 3 minutes. Patients may have up to 15 events per hour of sleep. [from HPO]

4.

Obstructive sleep apnea

A condition characterized by obstruction of the airway and by pauses in breathing during sleep occurring many times during the night. Obstructive sleep apnea is related to a relaxation of muscle tone (which normally occurs during sleep) leading to partial collapse of the soft tissues in the airway with resultant obstruction of the air flow. [from HPO]
