Sleep apnea occurs when you regularly stop breathing for 10 seconds or longer during sleep.
How many times do you stop breathing during the course of an hour?
You may not even realize that you do stop breathing.
Your partner or spouse may have a better idea and even then, it’s hard to actually track it without doing some kind of a sleep test.
- Under 5 times per hour: Normal
- Between 5 – 15 times per hour: Mild Sleep Apnea
- Between 15 – 30 times per hour: Moderate
- 30 or more times per hour: Severe
