There are three types of sleep apnea. 

  1. Obstructive Sleep Apnea is the most commonly diagnosed type of the condition. It occurs when the tissue at the back of your throat closes during sleep and blocks your airway.

  2. Central Sleep Apnea occurs when signals from your brain do not transmit correctly to initiate your body's mechanisms that drive your ability to breathe.

  3. Mixed Sleep Apnea is diagnosed when the patient shows signs of both obstructive and central sleep apnea.
