I discovered a lot of people suffer from sleeping disorders. However, sleep apnea and snoring treatment are here. Sleep deprivation is a condition in which the patient cannot experience continuous sleep. Both sleep apnea and snoring are closely related to breathing disorders; the former being a more fatal complication than the latter. Thought both stems from congestion in the airways during sleep, snoring does not affect the quality of sleep.
Sleep apnea is by far the most significant disease tied to microsleeps in terms of prevalence, affecting roughly 10 to 15 million people. Moreover, sleep apnea can not only be dangerous to one’s well being but it also affects our comfort levels during our sleep.
Sleep apnea occurs in all age groups but is more common in men and may be under-diagnosed in women. Ironically, it is noted, breathing through the mouth affects hundreds of processes in the human body. Sleeping on the back can make breathing about 2 times heavier reducing oxygenation and triggering sleep apnea.
There are two types of sleep apnea:
Type one is Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) – This is the more common of the two forms of sleep apnea, and is caused by a blockage of the airway; usually when the soft tissue in the back of the throat collapses during sleep.
Type two is Central Sleep Apnea (CSA) – Unlike OSA, the airway is not blocked, but the brain fails to signal the muscles to breathe, due to instability in the respiratory control center. So, the effort to breathe is absent.
Despite all of the symptoms and the debilitating disorder, we have a treatment to help with getting a restful sleep soon!
