Sleep Disorders Can be Dangerous.... Find your solution here.
To get started, lets have a look at the common sleep disorders around us. The most common sleep disorders we see around us are: •Sleep Apnea •COPD (Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease) •Emphysema (type of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease)
So, These were the most common sleep disorders we usually face. Now let us take a closer look at them... What is Sleep Apnea? Ans: Sleep apnea is a type of sleep disorder characterized by pauses in breathing or instances of shallow or infrequent breathing during sleep. Sleep apnea affects the way you breathe when you’re sleeping. In untreated sleep apnea, breathing is briefly interrupted or becomes very shallow during sleep. These breathing pauses typically last between 10 to 20 seconds and can occur up to hundreds of times a night, jolting you out of your natural sleep rhythm. As a consequence, you spend more time in light sleep and less time in the deep.
This chronic sleep deprivation results in daytime sleepiness, slow reflexes, poor concentration, and an increased risk of accidents. Sleep apnea can also lead to serious health problems over time, including diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, stroke, and weight gain. Type Of Sleep Apnea: Usually there are 3 types of Sleep Apnea:1.Obstructive sleep apnea: It is the most common type of sleep apnea. It occurs when the soft tissue in the back of your throat relaxes during sleep and blocks the airway, often causing you to snore loudly. 2. Central sleep apnea: It’s a much less common type of sleep apnea that involves the central nervous system, occurring when the brain fails to signal the muscles that
3.Complex sleep apnea: It’s a combination of obstructive sleep apnea and central sleep apnea. What is COPD (Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease)? Ans: chronic obstructive pulmonary (PULL-mun-ary) disease or COPD is a progressive disease that makes it hard to breathe. "Progressive" means the disease gets worse over time. Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), also known as chronic obstructive lung disease (COLD), chronic obstructive airway disease (COAD), chronic airflow limitation (CAL), and chronic obstructive respiratory disease (CORD), is a lung disease defined by persistently
What is Emphysema? Ans: Emphysema is a type of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) involving damage to the air sacs (alveoli) in the lungs. As a result, your body does not get the oxygen it needs. Emphysema makes it hard to catch your breath. You may also have a chronic cough and have trouble breathing.
What happens when you have these problems....? Hmm.. Let me guess.... You can`t get a peaceful sleep all night ..
