What is sleep disordered breathing?


Sleep apnea is a common disorder that can be serious. In sleep apnea, your breathing stops or gets very shallow. Each pause in breathing typically lasts 10 to 20 seconds or more. These pauses can occur 20 to 30 times or more an hour. The most common type is obstructive sleep apnea. That means you are unable to get enough air through your mouth and nose into your lungs. When that happens, the amount of oxygen in your blood may drop. Normal breaths resume with a snort or choking sound. People with sleep apnea often snore loudly. However, not everyone who snores has sleep apnea.

Night Terrors
The sleep disorder of night terrors typically occurs in children aged 3-12 years, with a peak onset in children aged 3½ years. Sleep is divided into 2 categories: rapid eye movement (REM) and nonrapid eye movement (non-REM). Non-REM sleep is further divided into 4 stages, progressing from stages 1-4. Night terrors occur during the transition from stage 3 non-REM sleep to stage 4 non-REM sleep, beginning approximately 90 minutes after the child falls asleep. Night terrors are distinctly different from the much more common nightmares, which occur during REM sleep. Night terrors are characterized by frequent recurrent episodes of intense crying and fear during sleep, with difficulty arousing the child. Night terrors are frightening episodes that disrupt family life. An estimated 1-6% of children experience night terrors. Boys and girls are equally affected. Children of all races also seem to be affected equally. The disorder usually resolves during adolescence.

Jet lag disorder
Jet lag, also called time zone change syndrome, is a sleep disorder that can affect anyone who quickly travels across multiple time zones. Jet lag is caused by a disruption to your body's internal clock or circadian rhythms which tell your body when it's time to be awake and when it's time to sleep. The more time zones crossed, the more likely you are to experience jet lag.

Narcolepsy
Narcolepsy (NAHR-koh-lep-see) is a sleep disorder where you do not get enough REM sleep. REM (rapid eye movement) sleep is the stage of sleep where you dream. Not getting enough REM sleep at night causes you to be sleepy during the day. You can fall asleep at any time, even when you do not want to. With this disorder, you may have no control over when you fall asleep. You may not sleep well at night, and do not get enough sleep in a 24-hour period. Narcolepsy may cause you to have relationship problems and problems at work. Narcolepsy can affect how you feel about yourself and your life.
