ABSTRACT
The article discusses the disorder in breathing during sleep. Ear oxygen saturation in normal, young, healthy subjects, changes little from resting values throughout a normal night's sleep. Breathing in sleep apnea syndromes ceases recurrently for periods of 10 seconds or longer, for many times in each hour of sleep. It was stated that obstructive sleep apnea is already considered a common concomitant of the alveolar hypoventilation syndrome.
