Sleep Apena101

  1. 1. PRESENTS<br />SLEEP APNEA 101<br />
  2. 2. WHAT IS SLEEP APNEA?<br />Sleep apnea is a sleep disorder characterized <br />by abnormal pauses in breathing or instances of abnormally low breathing, during sleep. <br />Each pause in breathing, called an apnea,<br /> can last from a few seconds to minutes, and may occur 5 to 30 times or more an hour. Similarly, each abnormally low breathing event is called a hypopnea. <br />Sleep apnea is diagnosed with an overnight sleep test called a polysomnogram, or a "sleep study".<br />
  3. 3.
  4. 4. IS YOUR PARTNER TELLING YOU THAT YOU SNORE?<br />An individual with sleep apnea is rarely aware of having difficulty breathing, even upon awakening.<br /> Sleep apnea is recognized as a problem by others witnessing the individual during episodes or is suspected because of its effects on the body. <br />Symptoms may be present for years (or even decades) <br />without identification, during which time the sufferer may become conditioned to the daytime sleepiness and fatigue associated with <br />significant levels of sleep disturbance.<br />
  5. 5. SLEEP APNEA SYMPTOMS<br />Excessive daytime sleepiness<br />Waking with an un-refreshed feeling after sleep, having problems with memory and concentration, feeling tired, and experiencing personality changes.<br />Morning or night headaches. <br />Heartburn or a sour taste in the mouth at night.<br />Swelling of the legs.<br />Getting up during the night to urinate.<br />Sweating and chest painwhile you are sleeping.<br />Symptoms of sleep apnea that others may notice include:<br />Episodes of not breathing <br />Loud snoring.<br />Restless tossing and turning during sleep.<br />Nighttime choking or gasping spells.<br />
  6. 6. EFFECTS OF SLEEP DEPRIVATION<br />
  7. 7. Statistically speaking, <br />more than 40 MILLION people in the U.S., <br />or one in seven individuals, <br />suffer from not enough or poor quality of sleep.<br />Sleep deprivation is known to cause the following<br />Cerebral vascular accidents/strokes<br />Heart disease<br />Hypertension<br />Diabetes<br />Obesity<br />
  8. 8. Most adults need about seven to eight hours of sleep <br />within the 24-hour cycle that makes up our <br />circadian rhythm, or biological clock.<br />Sleep is a resting state where the body is inactive, blood pressure <br />and temperature are lowered, breathing is slowed, <br />and senses are unaware.<br />Medical science believes that during sleep our bodies repair and renew their tissues, nerve cells, and biochemical's. <br />A common misconception is that your brain during sleep is inactive. Quite the contrary, it is widely believed that sleep is a time for the brain to organize long-term memory and new information, <br />and to put activities and emotions into context.<br />
