What is snoring?
Snoring is for most of us the first expression of a deep sleep. For many others, however, an unpleasant disturbance of the common night’s sleep. Recent scientific research has shown that snoring is a serious lethal health hazard.
Snorers are often lonely but not alone. 60% – 80% of all men and 40% of women over 50 years snore.
Many of them without knowing it.
How does snoring happen??
Snoring is caused by the temporary relaxation of the muscles of the upper respiratory tract. The soft tissues of the palate and the mucous membranes in the pharyngeal space flutter back and forth.
The tongue muscles slackened in the sleep sinks backwards and closes the throat area for seconds – it comes to Atemnot.
Snoring is the precursor to a disturbed breathing.
The use of certain medications – including sleeping pills and fatty food, as well as alcohol in the evening, not only increase the snoring, but also its volume.
Can snoring endanger my health?
Damage caused by snoring is caused by respiratory failure (sleep apnea). Increased relaxation of the airways leads to a narrowing or even temporary exposure of the air flow during inhalation. This condition is called apnea (Greek “calmness”).
The airways are closed and there is at times no oxygen supply to the lungs and brain. This lasts until the brain ends this situation by an automatic, unnoticed wake-up reaction: the jaw closes, the tongue pushes forward and the pharynx opens again.
This cycle can be repeated over 50 times an hour in one night, as is the case with an estimated 2 million Germans today.
Decreased sleep quality – Poor concentration
“He who does not sleep, who does not think” is a well-known saying.
In patients suffering from “sleep apnea” the quality of sleep is disturbed. This affects the well-being of the patient during the day. A patient with sleep apnea experiences during the day, lack of concentration and a tiredness up to falling asleep. In particularly severe cases, falling asleep during the day can no longer be prevented by the patient (sleep forced).
The reduced quality of sleep can lead to severe emotional impairments, which can be reflected in the form of irritability to depression.
Sleep apnea can have the following effects:
- relationship problems
- reduced efficiency
- a headache
- Daytime tiredness and lack of concentration
- personality change
- Chronic sleep disorders
- sexual dysfunction (impotence)
- nocturnal sweating
- high blood pressure
- Heart attack
- Shorter life expectancy
60% of patients suffering from sleep apnea also have high blood pressure disease. The blood pressure is initially only too high at night, later on during the day. Sleep apnea is the cause of unexplained high blood pressure.
