What is sleep apnea?
Sleep apnea (sleep-disordered breathing) is a serious and common sleep disorder affecting about 12 million Americans, according to the National Institutes of Health (NIH). Its name comes from a Greek word, apnea , meaning "without breath." People with sleep apnea stop breathing briefly many times during the night. The breathing pauses last at least 10 seconds, and there may be 20 to 30 or more pauses per hour. The main symptoms of sleep apnea are persistent loud snoring at night and daytime sleepiness. Another symptom is frequent long pauses in breathing during sleep, followed by choking and gasping for breath. People with sleep apnea don't get enough restful sleep, and their daytime performance is often seriously affected. Sleep apnea may also lead to high blood pressure, heart disease, heart attack, and stroke. However, it can be diagnosed and treated.

Sleep Apnea
What is sleep apnea? Sleep apnea refers to interruption of breathing during sleep. Apnea is a Greek word that means "want of breath." The most common form of sleep apnea is obstructive sleep apnea. In obstructive sleep apnea, the muscles of the soft palate around the base of the tongue and the uvula relax, obstructing the airway. The airway obstruction causes the level of oxygen in the blood to fall (hypoxia), increases the stress on the heart, elevates blood pressure, and prevents the patient from entering "REM sleep," the restful and restorative stage of sleep. In other words, sleep apnea causes deprivation of quality sleep. What are symptoms of sleep apnea? The symptoms of obstructive sleep apnea include loud snoring and/or abnormal pattern of snoring with pauses and gasps. Other symptoms include excessive daytime sleepiness, memory changes, depression, and irritability. In some patients sleep apnea can contribute to high blood pressure, heart failure, stroke, and heart attack. Obstructive sleep apnea typically affects middle-age, overweight men, and may affect women in later years. Obstructive apnea can be aggravated by alcohol, sleeping pills and tranquilizers taken at bedtime.

General Health Newsletter Sleep Health News
During sleep, we usually pass through five phases of sleep: stages 1, 2, 3, 4, and REM (rapid eye movement) sleep. These stages progress in a cycle from stage 1 to REM sleep, then the cycle starts over again with stage 1. We spend almost 50 percent of our total sleep time in stage 2 sleep, about 20 percent in REM sleep, and the remaining 30 percent in the other stages. Infants, by contrast, spend about half of their sleep time in REM sleep. For more, read the Sleep article.

Obstructive Sleep Apnea Subscribe to My Apnea Support Group Listserv! CPAP is an acronym for Continuous Positive Air Pressure, and is the word used for the machines that apneacs use when they sleep to get REM sleep. Obstructive Sleep Apnea is a very under-diagnosed sleeping disorder which I was diagnosed with in December 1995. Apnea is not realistically a life or death issue but it is very much about quality of life. Since my diagnosis I have been getting treatment. To find out more about the condition, which is most noticeable in those who snore, see the following: Apnea: The Sleep Well Sleep Apnea IF YOU CAN ANSWER YES TO MORE THAN ONE OF THESE you should tell your doctor to check you out for sleep apnea:

It is also for those who may be thinking of becoming a Breathing Therapist themselves. Hello my name is Michael A Clark, welcome to my site. I am a qualified Buteyko Therapist I also hold qualifications in Stress Management, counselling and Reiki. The Brisbane Medical Trials of 1996 compared two study groups. The group treated with Buteyko reported an astonishing 92% reduction in the use of Bronchodilators (Ventolins)! This compared to the other group who were treated with conventional treatment which showed no improvement. I was hooked! As quickly as possible I did the Butyeyko Course, passed my exam and completed the necessary case studies. In no time I was practising and found that by incorporating my Stress Consultancy experience I could in fact gain even better results.

Considering how common a condition it is, it is remarkable that the first reports of what is now called obstructive sleep apnea date only from 1965 when it was independently described by French and German investigators. The term “Pickwickian sydrome”, inspired by Charles Dickens ' account in The Pickwick Papers of Joe, the fat boy, has been used in medicine to describe various conditions associated with obesity , excessive appetite and sleepiness and it was once presumed to be due to an endocrine problem. “Pickwickian syndrome” soon became the descriptor for the newly identified disorder but as more cases were recognized it became clear that neither obesity nor somnolence were necessarily present. “Pickwickian” was later reserved for “the obesity-hypoventilation syndrome” and today the term is best avoided because of its ill-defined meaning. The early reports of sleep apnea described individuals who were very severely affected, often presenting with severe

80. Chronic Obstructive Airways Disease
Abstract with links to obstructive sleep apnea.
Chronic Obstructive Airways Disease
There can be large falls in arterial oxygen saturation during sleep in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. In general, these falls can be predicted from daytime oxygen levels and are not due to classical OSA syndrome, but to a number of factors which combine to produce worsening hypoxaemia during sleep. These patients are often at the limits of their respiratory capacity, and the loss of the intercostal and accessory muscle contribution to breathing, and the increase in upper airways resistance associated with REM sleep, cause marked falls in ventilation. In addition, patients may be hypoxic while awake and small falls in ventilation and PaO2 lead to large falls in arterial oxygen saturation during sleep. The hypoxic episodes demonstrated by overnight oximetry in a patient with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease differ in character from those seen in patients with OSA syndrome (figure 10). Figure 10. Overnight arterial oxygen saturation monitoring in a patient with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. There is some evidence that increases in upper airway narrowing during sleep, short of apnoeas and even snoring, may contribute to the development of CO2 retention in these patients. However classical sleep apnoea is not significantly more common in unselected COPD patients with raised CO2 levels, and excessive nocturnal hypoxaemia is not one of the predictors of long- term survival in patients with COPD.
