Caption

An illustration comparing an obese and normal sleeper. In adults, sleep apnea is commonly caused by excess weight and obesity. During sleep, when the throat and tongue muscles are more relaxed, soft tissue, excess fat deposits and the weight of abdominal fat pressing on the lungs can interfere with normal sleep.
