                        <p>
&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;<strong>W</strong>hen you're awake, throat muscles help keep your airway stiff and open so air can flow into your lungs. When you sleep, these muscles are more relaxed. Normally, the relaxed throat muscles don't stop your airway from staying open to allow air into your lungs. 
But, if you have obstructive <strong>Sleep Apnea</strong>, your airways can be blocked or narrowed during sleep because:
                        <ul><li> Your throat muscles and tongue relax more than normal. </li><br><br>
                        <li>Your tongue and tonsils (tissue masses in the back 
                          of your mouth) are large compared to the opening into 
                          your windpipe. </li><br><br>
                        <li>You're <a href="http://www.nhlbi.nih.gov/health/dci/Diseases/obe/obe_whatare.html" target="_blank">overweight</a>. </li><br><br>
                        <li>The extra soft fat tissue can thicken the wall of the 
                          windpipe. This causes the inside opening to narrow and 
                          makes it harder to keep open. </li><br><br>
                        <li>The shape of your head and neck (bony structure) may 
                          cause a smaller airway size in the mouth and throat 
                          area. </li><br><br>
                        <li>The aging process limits the ability of brain signals 
                          to keep your throat muscles stiff during sleep. This 
                          makes it more likely that the airway will narrow or 
                          collapse. </li><br><br>
                        <li>Not enough air flows into your lungs when your airways 
                          are fully or partly blocked during sleep. This can cause 
                          loud snoring and a drop in your blood oxygen levels. </li><br></ul>
