Do Americans Snore? Well studies show that 25 % of Americans in all ages have a problem with chronic snoring while sleeping. Therefore, they need Sleep Apnea testing  as a  method to cure from snoring. The most common treatment for moderate to severe obstructive sleep apnea is Continuous Positive Airflow Pressure (CPAP). Other treatments  include:

 

  1. Using  3 tiny, polyester implants may bring a good night’s sleep.
  2. Sleep Apnea One Night Test-at home or hospital
  3. One simple, safe and effective treatment method used to stop snoring is the Pillar Procedure. It was designed to stiffen the patient’s palate to help him/her stop snoring.

Because snoring can affect the quality of your sleep and that of your bed partner and the way you feel during the day hinges on how well you sleep at night.  As we age we experience changes in our sleeping patterns, but a good night’s sleep is just as important. In this article we explain the signs and types of Sleeping Apnea:

Signs:

First of all, physically, if pauses occur while you snore, and if choking or gasping follow the pauses, these are major signs that you have sleep apnea. This description  is given by professionals. Another common sign of sleep apnea is fighting sleepiness during the day, at work, or while driving. You may find yourself rapidly falling asleep during the quiet moments of the day when you’re not active. Even if you don’t have daytime sleepiness, you have to talk with your doctor if you have problems breathing during sleep.

Other signs of sleep apnea include, morning headaches; feeling irritable; depressed; memory or learning problems; and not being able to concentrate; or having mood swings or personality changes; in addition to waking up frequently to urinate; and having dry mouth or sore throat when you wake up.

Types of sleep apnea

  • Obstructive      sleep apnea is the most common type of sleep apnea. It occurs when the soft      tissue in the back of your throat relaxes during sleep and blocks the      airway, often causing you to snore loudly.
  • Central      sleep apnea is      a much less common type of sleep apnea that involves the central nervous      system, occurring when the brain fails to signal the muscles that control      breathing. People with      central sleep apnea seldom snore.
  • Complex      sleep apnea is a combination of obstructive sleep apnea and central sleep      apnea.

Finally, exercise is recommended  in general, it is  good for the mind as it is for the body. Even a little regular exercise medical doctors suggest can boost a person energy and mood and relieve stress, anxiety, and depression which are related to sleep apnea. AAE
