Obstructive Sleep Apnoea Syndrome (OSAS) is a disorder consisting of ‘apnoeas’, or breathing pauses, during sleep. These obstructive apnoeas are mainly caused by the collapse of the upper airway walls. OSAS affects more than 25% of the population and has a significant impact on the quality of life of the sufferer, whose sleep is not restful and who may experience daytime fatigue and an increased risk of accidents. Moreover, the chronic reduction of the levels of oxygen in the blood increases the risk of systemic diseases such as high blood pressure or insulin resistance.
