Sleep apnea is a pause in breathing caused by the upper airway collapsing and blocking the air flow. If your breathing disruptions most commonly occur when sleeping on your back, then it is known as POSA. POSA can be identified during a sleep study, and effective treatment would encourage alternative sleeping positions, lessening the breathing pauses caused by sleeping on your back.
