Posted: Aug 22, 2020
We all love sleeping. After a hectic day at work, who doesn’t want to get himself cozy with the blanket and have a tight sleep? But what if a person sleeping next to you starts snoring at 2 in the night?
Snoring is the most common thing that we all notice around us. In every family, at least one member has this habit of loud snoring all night while rest of the members suffers. We take thing so lightly that many of us do not consider snoring as a problem, which is not correct at all.
In the doctor’s term this problem is known as sleep apnea. Recent medical researches state that 1 out of the 5 (20%) adults have mild symptoms of sleep apnea while 1 in the 15 suffers from a severe disorder. People of all ages suffer from this while it is more prevalent in those aged above 50.
Basically, sleep apnea is a sleep disorder in which breathing stops and starts at a continuous rate. We call it snoring and do not pay any heed which in a long run could result in a heart disease, high blood pressure or a serious breathing problem.
There are many cases found where person suffering from sleep apnea is not aware at all about his problem. He never feels so, and the family members won’t tell him. So following are some of the symptoms:
- Loud snoring throughout the night
- Sore throat, or morning headache
- Concentration problem
- Gasping for air during sleep
- Obesity or hypertension
- Excessive stress or work load
- Dental problem
Now, sleep apnea can be of different types, let’s discuss:
- Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA): This is the most common form of sleep apnea. In this, the muscles in the back of your throat relax, causing oxygen deficit. Your brain nerve senses your inability to breath and you suddenly wake up. If not treated in an early stage, this can also result in loud snoring and even chocking
- Central sleep apnea (CSA): This is a rare form mostly found in elderly people. In CSA, the brain nerves do not transmit signal to you breathing muscles and you might end up gasping for air after a short period of time.
Now, as the universal rule goes "if there is a problem, there has to be a solution". This sleep apnea also has treatment.
Now when it comes to treatment, you need to be pretty sure what kind of medical facility you are opting for, as there are many sleep apnea doctors in Seattle who claim themselves to be the best in the business. Also sleep apnea could be treated in different ways, like following mandibular advancement therapy like usual medicines or going for a dental solution. The latter treatment is considered as the safest, therefore the most preferred one.
