Was ist eine positionsabhängige Schlafapnoe?

What is position dependent sleep apnea?

In classic sleep apnea, the airways are repeatedly blocked during sleep, which leads to an interruption in breathing. Position-dependent sleep apnea is a special form of this. Here the airways are mainly blocked in the supine position.

Sleep apnea affects the quality of sleep and can have a significant impact on performance and overall health. If you have sleep apnea and supine apnea events are twice as common as those on your side, your sleep apnea is probably position dependent. Sleeping on your side can significantly reduce your symptoms.

Check with your doctor if you have been diagnosed with position dependent OSA.

Wenn Sie in Rückenlage schlafen

When you sleep on your back, your airways are blocked, which can cause breathing to stop.

Wenn Sie in Seitenlage schlafen

When you sleep on your side, your airways are free, which makes breathing easier.
