Sleep Apnea is a Highly Risky Disorder

Those who have sleep apnea ought to know that it is a highly risky disorder that may lead to heart attack, obesity and even depression.


Many people have it and they are not even aware of the fact. Sleep apnea affects 18 million Americans. They face the issue of restless sleep. The problem may have a lot to do with dissatisfaction which is a symptom of insomnia as well. 

Usually, the person with apnea will start snoring at night and then his breathing will stop for a while leading to the brain signaling the body to momentarily awaken. The individual will suddenly wake up and breathe in gulps of air then get back to the business of sleep. 

But the cycle of sleepiness and awakening will occur several times during the night. This is extremely bad for overall health. It causes a range of physical and psychological problems. 

  • Obesity,
  • irritability,
  • daytime fatigue,
  • diabetes, 
  • depression,
  • heart attack,
  • stroke and 
  • hypertension

are just a few which you will contract thanks to this disorder

Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) and central sleep apnea are the two types of sleep apnea in which OSA is most common. There are several palliative measures you may take. One of the most obvious ones is to lose weight. Even a small amount of poundage shed will lead to an ameliorative effect. 

Beyond that there is a machine known as CPAP which can be attached to the respiratory system at night and it will help in easing the breathing patterns. 

"We know that obstructive sleep apnea is a potential cause of high blood pressure, and we know that CPAP use is associated with reductions in blood pressure in people with hypertension," says sleep specialist Vishesh K. Kapur, MD, of the University of Washington, Seattle. "And now there is reasonable evidence that this treatment can prevent high blood pressure in patients who don't already have it."

Sleep apnea is largely conquered via this machine which is available currently. While you will wake up feeling refreshed using CPAP, there are a few side effects of the device. It causes dry throat/nasal passage as well as headaches. 

There is a pulse generator that is in the pipeline too. It will be fitted to the body and trigger the respiratory reflex to act on demand whenever breathing becomes troublesome. 

 

"The device itself is a pacemaker-like device that is placed just under the skin of the right upper chest," said Soose, director, University of Pittsburgh Medical Center Division of Sleep Surgery.

Sleep apnea can be treated by sleep hygiene as well. By avoiding caffeine and other stimulants close to bedtime their deleterious effects can be avoided leading to restful and refreshing sleep.
