Almost everyone snores at some point or another. But, if you or a loved one always snores, the problem might be more serious than you think.
There are several different ways a person may breathe when he or she is sleeping.
During a sleep apnea event, the tongue relaxes against the top of the throat, closing the airway. This cuts off oxygen to the brain. After a few seconds, the body’s natural reflex kicks in and the individual startles awake for the tongue muscles to tighten, opening the airway and restoring airflow. The snorer often never fully awakens, but this interruption of sleep patterns causes fatigue.
Many people with sleep apnea are unaware of their issue. If they have a bed partner, diagnosis may come after the partner notices the constant snoring, long pauses between breaths, and loud snorting or choking sounds that go with a startle. If there is no-one else in the room, the issue may pass unremarked until other symptoms prompt an investigation.
Sleep apnea can cause fatigue and sleepiness during the day, irritability, depression, headaches, hypertension, and a host of other health problems. All these have these triggers: oxygen deprivation and fractured sleep cycles. If you think you or someone you love has UARS or OSA, ask for a referral to or a consultation with sleep expert Dr. Bryan Weyneth.
