    Sleep apnoea, a breathing disorder consisting of complete pauses or partial decreases in breathing during sleep, is often associated with snoring and daytime sleepiness. Obstructive sleep apnoea is usually caused by upper airway obstruction. Less common is central sleep apnoea, resulting from...
