Sleep Apnoea Linked to Speedier Memory Loss

confusedSleep apnoea is closely linked to snoring due to the restriction of the airways. Sleep apnoea is chielfly the inability to breathe during sleep and affects 53 percent of men and 26 percent of women.

Key takeaways:

·    A study has showed that sleep apnoea patients are diagnosed with mild cognitive impairment more than a decade earlier compared to people without sleep apnoea.

·     Lack of sleep and low blood oxygen levels not only caused cognitive decline but also promoted onset of Alzheimer’s disease

·       Patients who made use of a CPAP machine began to show mental decline at similar age to people without sleep apnoea.

"This study is adding to the emerging story that sleep apnoea may be contributing in some way to the acceleration of cognitive decline as you age, and that is potentially another good reason to get evaluated and treated."
