What is Central Sleep Apnea (CSA)?

Another type of sleep Apnea is called Central Sleep Apnea (CSA). This condition is not common and occurs in less than 10% of the Sleep Apnea community. Unlike OSA, a patient with CSA stops breathing even though the airway is still open. The condition is caused by the brain’s respiratory centre malfunctioning which interferes with the signal that is responsible for telling your body to breathe.

 

 People with brain stem injuries such as stroke and brain tumours, those with chronic respiratory conditions or people with heart conditions such as congestive heart disease or atrial fibrillation are more at risk of developing CSA.
