Sleep Apnoea is a Forgotten Condition That Needs More Recognition by All
Obstructive sleep apnoea is a condition which needs to be addressed as soon as possible. This is because sleep apnoea can lead to more complications such as hypertension, diabetes, heart disease and stroke. An article from http://www.huffingtonpost.co.uk has offered facts to tell everyone why sleep apnoea needs to be recognized as soon as possible.
Sleep apnoea is a condition where the muscles in the throat relax in a sleeping person resulting in the airways narrowing, causing the person to stop breathing. As a consequence, they wake up (often without knowing it) frequently throughout the night in order to regain breath. This repeated process can put a serious mental and physical strain on the affected person.
People with sleep apnoea are at increased risk of a number of serious conditions including stroke, heart failure and one study estimates that untreated sleep apnoea can reduce life expectancy by 20 years.
Sleep apnoea is also proven to cause high blood pressure and has been associated with depression.
At its most serious, undiagnosed sleep apnoea has caused death on the roads, and can have a devastating effect on professional and social lives. Such outcomes are a severe and unnecessary cost to both the individual and wider society.
