Sunday Respiratory Video

We celebrated World Sleep Day 2013 on 15 March 2013!
Sleep Apnea Syndrome (SAS) describes people who stop breathing while they are asleep and then suddenly start breathing again. It is thought to affect up to 5% of people in Europe.
In adults, the cause is muscular. During sleep, the larynx relaxes so completely that it blocks the airway, preventing the person from breathing.
