What are Sleep Disorders?

Sleep disorders are conditions that prevent a person from getting restful sleep and, as a result, can cause daytime sleepiness and dysfunction. There are approximately eighty different types of sleep disorders. About 70 million Americans suffer from them. The most important sleep disorders are:

Sleep apnea:

One of the common sleeping disorder in which the individual encounters one or more breathing pauses or shallow breaths during the sleep. It might last for few minutes to few seconds depending upon the severity of the individual's disorder. For example, it can occur 30 times or more in a time frame of an hour. When breathing interrupted during the sleep the suffering individual won't get enough oxygen to the body, eventually, the sound sleep will be converted to lite sleep. Due to the poor quality sleep at night time automatically the sleep will start to haunt the day time. There are two types of Sleep apnea

Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA): OSA is very common out of two types, in which it is caused due to the airway block which collapses soft tissues in the throat.

Central sleep apnea: Unlike OSA, there is no interruption in the airway, in spite the brain stops providing the signal to the muscles to breathe.


It is a sleeping disorder in which an individual encounters ‘excessive sleeping' throughout the whole day and finding hard in staying awake. The potential causes of hypersomnia are substance abuse, sleep deprivation issues, being overweight, and also genetic plays a vital role. Some of the symptoms are memory loss, irritated feeling, anxiety and depression, tiredness, and etc.
