    Do you have sleep apnea?

    Sleep apnea is a disorder that causes your body to stop breathing while you sleep. It’s a potentially fatal condition, with harmful short- and long-term complications, that affects more than 1 in 3 men and 1 in 6 women.

    What causes sleep apnea?

    There are three main types of sleep apnea: Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), which more than 80% of sleep apnea patients have, occurs when enlarged and/or relaxed throat muscles obstruct your upper airway, blocking air from entering and leaving your lungs. Central sleep apnea (CSA), so named for its relation to the central nervous system, occurs when the brain stops signalling for the body to breathe until it detects a lack of oxygen and/or a heightened level of carbon dioxide that needs to be exhaled. Complex sleep apnea (CompSA) is a combination of OSA and CSA.

    Eventually your brain senses that you’ve stopped breathing and causes you to wake up just enough to gasp and start breathing again. Then you fall back to sleep and the cycle begins again. This can happen more than 120 times every hour, even though you may not remember waking up. As you can imagine, apneas put immense short- and long-term strains on the body. Short-term effects of sleep apnea Of course apneas cause the immediate life-threatening danger of not inhaling enough oxygen (or exhaling enough poisonous carbon dioxide). But the body’s constant waking due to these apneas can also cause sleep deprivation. This can lower people’s energy and attentiveness the next day, negatively affect their moods and relationships with others, and raise the risk for memory loss, cognitive impairment and injury.

    Long-term effects of sleep apnea Untreated sleep apnea has been linked to an increased risk for other chronic and life-threatening conditions such as hypertension (high blood pressure) and heart failure, as well as poorer glucose control in patients with type 2 diabetes.

    The first step toward treating sleep apnea and living healthier is recognizing the signs and symptoms of sleep apnea and asking your doctor to get screened and tested. Roughly 80% of people with sleep apnea don’t know they have it,5 partly because they can never witness their own nighttime symptoms.

    Common sleep apnea symptoms:

    While snoring is still the strongest predictor of sleep apnea in men and women, not everyone who snores has it. And more important, not everyone who has it snores. Below are other common sleep apnea symptoms:

    Constant tiredness

    Poor concentration

    Night sweats

    Weight gain

    Lack of energy

    Forgetfulness

    Sexual dysfunction

    Frequent urination at night

    In addition, women often show subtler, atypical symptoms such as insomnia, morning headaches, depression and anxiety.

    These symptoms often lead to misdiagnoses such as depression, insomnia or menopausal side effects.8 If you have these symptoms, be sure to ask your doctor about whether you might have sleep apnea.

    Hints for Better Sleep

    Maintain a regular bed and wake time.

    Different people require a different number of sleeping hours each night to feel recovered. The average person needs 5-7 hours. You should try and go to bed and wake at a similar time each day to ensure a good sleep pattern is maintained.

    Exercise at least 20 minutes 3 times a week.

    Getting your body moving keeps you healthy and agile while promoting better sleep quality and better living. It is best to exercise during the day or early evening, and not during the last 3 hours before bedtime.

    Avoid caffeine close to bedtime.

    Caffeine is a stimulant and therefore produces an alerting effect. The effects of caffeine can remain for 3-5 hours and even if you don’t think caffeine affects you, it may be disrupting or changing your sleep quality.

    Use your bedroom only for sleeping.

    It is best to keep work materials, computers and televisions out of the sleeping environment. This strengthens the association between bed and sleep.

    Refrain from eating 2 hours before bedtime.

    Your metabolism slows during sleep so this will give your stomach time to digest your most recent meal before it slows down during the night. Make sure your sleeping environment is cool, quiet and dark. These conditions promote better sleep quality.

    What to Expect from a Sleep Apnea Test

    What to expect from a sleep apnea test Following your visit, your doctor will prescribe a sleep study to determine if you are experiencing sleep apnea. The study is a simple, painless procedure that will take place overnight in a sleep lab or in your home, depending on your health history and insurance.

    Adhesive sensors will be placed on your scalp, forehead, chin, chest, leg, and index finger to collect information from your brain, heart, lungs, and muscles. Bands may be wrapped around your chest and stomach to measure your breathing. Most people fall asleep and stay asleep without trouble. A sleep technician will collect this data while you sleep and wake you in the morning.

    Your doctor will review your results and work with you to develop a treatment plan, if necessary. Alternatively, portable sleep-testing technology may allow for in-home sleep apnea testing, depending on your health condition and insurance coverage. A sleep study is the first step to starting treatment. Treating your sleep apnea can lead to a happier, healthier life.

    What Our Patients Say

    • Alliance is very dependable and reliable! Oh one occasion, my patient's back up battery for his vent died unexpectedly, while we were at Morgan's Wonderland. Alliance sent someone over to bring us new back up battery and an extra oxygen tank within twenty minutes! Amazing! Anytime we have issues or supplies needed for him, Alliance has always taken care of it. I have nothing but good things to say about them and look forward to continue working with them in the future.
