Sleep Apnea is the cessation of breathing (while asleep) for a certain period of time (at least 10 seconds). In overweight individuals the tonsils and tongue are larger and full of fat…At night when you are lying down (especially on your back , also known as the ‘supine’ position), the enlarged tonsils and tongue fall backwards into the throat further adding to the obstruction caused by the excess fat along the walls of the airway ( see physiology section above ).

This in turn results in a narrowing of the airway, which is the basis of what an obstruction is all about.
