Reporters asked the White House about the signs, and White House spokesman Andrew Bates explained that they were due to Biden using a continuous airway pressure machine the night before to treat her sleep apnea.

He revealed that he suffered from sleep apnea in 2008, when he was Vice President under Barack Obama (2009-2017). However, his personal physician did not mention the case in any of the reports issued in 2021 and 2023.
