Air Jordan 19s
I want to talk today about a very serious and common disease that affects an estimated number of 20 million Americans Sleep Apnea. That just as prevalent as asthma Air Jordan 19s or diabetes. Now, I not a doctor, but for advice on this topic, I turned to Helena Ederveen, our Official Guide to Health Education. Helena is a Clinical Nutritionist and specializes in snoring remedies.Sleep Apnea is a sleep disorder in which breathing repeatedly stops and starts throughout the night. Many people don’t think of snoring as a sign of something potentially serious, and not everyone who has sleep apnea snores. You have to go through a process known as a study, but the results can determine the type of sleep apnea you are experiencing and how to treat it.Sleep apnea occurs in two main types: obstructive sleep apnea, is the more common form that occurs when throat muscles relax and become obstructed. The risk of OSA rises with increasing body weight, active smoking and age. In addition, patients with diabetes or diabetes have up to three times the risk of having OSA.Some treatments involve lifestyle changes, such as avoiding alcohol or muscle relaxants, losing weight, and quitting smoking. Many people benefit from sleeping at a 30 degree elevation of the upper body or higher, as if in a recliner. Doing so helps prevent the gravitational collapse of the airway. Sleeping on your side rather than flat on your back is also recommended as Air Jordan 10s a treatment for sleep apnea, largely because the gravitational component is smaller in the lateral position.The other main type of sleep apnea is Central sleep apnea, in which your breathing repeatedly stops and starts during sleep due to lack of respiratory effort. Unlike obstructive sleep apnea, in which you can’t breathe because of upper airway obstruction, central sleep apnea occurs when your brain doesn’t send proper signals to the muscles that control your breathing.In central sleep apnea, your body misses out on cycles of breathing. The sudden drop in blood oxygen levels that occur during sleep apnea increase blood pressure and strain the cardiovascular system. These changes raise the risk of heart failure and stroke. Central sleep apnea is less common, accounting for less than 5 percent of sleep apneas.Just when you thought it couldn get worse, Some people with sleep apnea have a combination of both types. When obstructive sleep apnea syndrome is severe and longstanding, episodes of central apnea sometimes develop.The most common treatment for sleep apnea is the use of a continuous positive airway pressure device, commonly known as a Machine. This device keeps the airway open during sleep by means of a flow of pressurized air into the throat. Patients diagnosed with sleep apnea can have corrective surgery to fix their airways as well, but those solutions are primarily for extreme cases. Milder cases of sleep apnea can be treated with the use of a specially shaped pillow.There are also holistic approaches to preventing against sleep apnea as well. You can learn more about these approaches, by visiting Helena website. We have a link to the left of the video.Now for our question Do you suffer from sleep apnea, or do you know someone who does? Let us know your experiences and how you are handling this disorder. The more knowledge and experience we share, the better. Some suggest to buy the CPAP and some do not. One of the doctors advised me that the best is to loose weight. My weight is little excessive compared to my height. The i tried Yoga and it gave me some result. it puts me lazy for the entire day.Really good information Helena. I will check out your website this week. Recently, my husband was diagnosed with Sleep Apnea. I was constantly asking him to tell his doctor that he would stop breathing several times in the night,which frightened me and kept me awake also. For the whole of last year I was tired, lethargic and put on a lot of extra weight. By chance when in hospital following an angina attack and following a night Air Jordan 5s where I kept most of the ward awake, a doctor questioned me and recommended I take a sleep study test I did and it showed that I was 28 times per hour over a 7 hour period pretty severe!! I now have a breathing machine, very sexy, and it is amazing AND my wife is able to sleep now too no more snoring!!I had no idea what sleep apnea was and no idea that it was affecting me in the way that it did. Now people tell me that I used to dose in the afternoon and I can recall many times when I had to stop the car and pull over because I felt I was dosing.This is a seriously dangerous condition and getting the word out to friends and relatives of those who Air Jordan 17s suffer unknowingly is critical thank you for devoting a video to the cause.Hi David,I have been in the dental field for 25+ years and there is an amazing new appliance on Air Jordan 16s the market for patients with sleep apnea. It is called Somnomed and it is a wonderful alternative for patients in place of the oxygen mask if indicated. Patients would need to have the medical study first for accurate diagnosis and the good news is that in most cases, this appliance, even though fitted by a dentist, is covered under their medical insurance.
