Are You Snoring Yourself to Death?

bedroomSnoring is no laughing matter. It can rob you of sleep and can disrupt good functioning in the daytime. Snoring can be a sign of sleep apnoea, a breathing disorder which gives rise to breathing pauses and reduction of ventilation during sleep.

An article from http://www.updatednews.ca has featured some facts about snoring and sleep apnoea:

  • Snoring and OSA can lead to other health issues, such as Acid Reflux Disease, Memory Loss, Stroke, Depression, Diabetes, Heart Attack, and more. Even frequent nighttime urination can be the result of snoring and OSA.

  • OSA means you actually stop breathing at night due to an involuntary muscular obstruction of your airway. This occurs hundreds of times each night, causing you to constantly wake to catch your breath.

  • A recent case study published by Eastern Virginia Medical School’s Division of Sleep Medicine in the Journal of Clinical Sleep Medicine concludes that wearing a simple chinstrap while you sleep can be an effective treatment for OSA. The chin strap works by supporting the lower jaw, which keeps the muscles and your tongue from involuntarily obstruction your airway. But it’s so comfortable that you won’t even know you have it on. You just won’t snore, and you won’t stop breathing, instead, you’ll sleep deeply.
