Number Of Times You Stop Breathing

It can be mild, moderate, or severe, depending on the number of times in an hour that your breathing stops (apnoea) or becomes very shallow (hypopnea). Apnea episodes may occur from 5 to 100 times an hour. More than five apnoea’s per hour is abnormal. More than 30-40 per hour is considered severe sleep apnoea.
