Sleep Apnoea: Symptoms, Causes, Treatment and Home Remedies
Sleep apnoea is a long-term condition that affects people as they sleep. This condition causes obstruction in breathing causing you to take shallow breaths, and then have sudden inhalation. There are no diagnostic tests, however you can help yourself or your partner to get treated. An article from http://medical-base.com offers some facts about this breathing problem.
Sleep apnoea moves you from a deep sleep to a light sleep, interrupting your body’s natural recovery cycle.
Sleep apnoea comes in two common forms, obstructive and central. Obstructive when your breathing is blocked while sleeping. This most commonly occurs if your airway collapses, your tonsils are enlarged, or you are overweight. As a result, your body forces air out, partially waking you up.
Central occurs less frequently, and is a result of a miscommunication between the part of your brain controlling sleeping and your lungs. As a result, it can happen to anyone.
Sleep apnoea can be inherited. In addition, sleep apnoea more frequently occurs in males, with a particular emphasis on Black and Latinos. Finally, sleep apnoea increases as you age, peaking at around year 65.
Figuring out for sure if someone you know or love suffers from sleep apnoea will require listening to their breathing as they sleep. Sleep apnoea can cause people to be tired, so watch out for irritable behaviour, depression, and mood swings. While sleeping, keep track of their in breaths and out breaths. Short pauses, sudden inhalations, and loud snoring are common signs.
One of the easiest things to do is to live healthier. Cut out caffeine before bed, reduce alcohol consumption, reduce weight, sleep regularly, and cut down on pills that aid in sleeping.
