- unrefreshed sleep
- restless sleep
- morning headache

Apnoeas occur when the airway at the back of the throat is sucked closed when breathing in during sleep.When awake this tendency is overcome by the action of opening muscles of the upper airway. Partial narrowing results in snoring, occlusion in apnoea and critical narrowing vin hypopnoeas.
Patients are woken by the struggle to breathe against the blocked throat. The awakenings are so brief that the patient remains unaware of them but is woken thousands of times per night leading to daytime sleepiness and impaired performance.
Important contributory factors are obesity, a small pharyngeal opening and chronic air flow limitation.
