Sleep Disorders Can
To get started, lets have a
look at the common sleep
disorders around us.
The most common sleep disorders we see around us are:
•COPD (Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease)
•Emphysema (type of chronic obstructive pulmonary
So, These were the most common sleep disorders
we usually face. Now let us take a closer look at
What is Sleep Apnea?
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
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)?
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?
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.
