German term or phrase:Apnoe
Apnoe ist das Tauchen mit dem Luftvorrat in der Lunge
Explanation: (First e should have an acute accent)
Medical term, Latin is apnoea (British English the same, US English apnea). It means suspension of breathing.
The Greek word "apnea" literally means "without breath." There are three types of sleep apnea: obstructive, central, and mixed; of the three, obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is the most common. Despite the difference in the root cause of each type, in all three, people with untreated sleep apnea stop breathing repeatedly during their sleep, sometimes hundreds of times during the night and often for a minute or longer.
