Below are the  3 Different Types of  Sleep Apnea:-

Central Sleep Apnea

Central Sleep Apnea is when the brain fails to signal the body to breathe.

Central Sleep Apnea is the most uncommon of the 3 Types and snoring is not a symptom.

In Central Sleep Apnea, breathing is disrupted regularly duringsleep because of the way the brain functions. It is not that you cannot breathe, you DO NOT try to breathe AT ALL. Thebrain does not tell your muscles to breathe.

Obstructive Sleep Apnea

Obstructive Sleep Apnea is the most common formof the Apnea’s.

During sleep, the soft tissue and muscles soften and relax around the airway, causing the airways to collapse.

When airways are restricted, the brain signals the body to breathe, causing the sleeper to snort or gasp for breath.

While sleepers typically do not wake during these episodes, one can stop breathing for several seconds or longer.  An Apnea can happen multiple times an hour every hour.

Complex Sleep Apnea

Complex Sleep Apnea is a combination of Central and Obstructive, where sleepers experience symptoms of both varieties.
