Does snoring mean Sleep Apnea?
Aug 1999 Does anyone have experience with their children's sleep apnea? My son (2 yrs old) snores terribly and seems to have trouble getting the breathing technique down at night. He can't seem to breath through his nose and sometimes will wake himself up trying to get air through. Obviously he breathes through his mouth, but when he's not in a deep sleep, he struggles with how to do it. It's painful for me to watch, not to mention the loud snoring and flopping around on the bed when he wakes up. We sleep together, so I get to participate in these events. I did see an ear/nose/throat doctor who said he did have big tonsils and probably big adenoids, but would need an x-ray to know for sure. We didn't really get into the subject of surgery, but it may come to that. However, the doc said he may outgrow it too. I really don't want to face surgery, but of course I don't want my son to lose sleep either. Thanks.
Is daughter's lack of growth due to sleep apnea?

Obstructive sleep apnea
Definition: Sleep apnea is a condition characterized by episodes of stopped breathing during sleep. See also sleep disorders
Alternative Names: Obstructive sleep apnea syndrome; Sleep apnea syndrome; Sleep apnea
Causes, incidence, and risk factors: In normal conditions, the muscles of the upper part of the throat keep this passage open to allow air to flow into the lungs. These muscles usually relax during sleep, but the passage remains open enough to permit the flow of air. Some individuals have a narrower passage, and during sleep, relaxation of these muscles causes the passage to close, and air cannot get into the lungs. Loud snoring and labored breathing occur. When complete blockage of the airway occurs, air cannot reach the lungs. For reasons that are still unclear, in deep sleep, breathing can stop for a period of time (often more than 10 seconds). These periods of lack of breathing, or apneas, are followed by sudden attempts to breathe. These attempts are accompanied by a change to a lighter stage of sleep. The result is fragmented sleep that is not restful, leading to excessive daytime

... Test Your Sleep IQ Information provided courtesy of the American Academy of Sleep Medicine Obstructive Sleep Apnea Syndrome A brief description Obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS) is a serious, potentially life-threatening condition that is far more common than generally understood. First described in 1965, sleep apnea is a breathing disorder characterized by brief interruptions of breathing during sleep. It owes its name to a Greek word, apnea, meaning, "want of breath.” There are two types of sleep apnea: central and obstructive . Central sleep apnea, which is less common, occurs when the brain fails to send the appropriate signals to the breathing muscles to initiate respiration. Obstructive sleep apnea is far more common and occurs when air cannot flow into or out of the person's nose or mouth even though efforts to breathe continue. In a given night, the number of involuntary breathing pauses or "apnea events" may be as high as 20 to 30 or more per hour. These breathing pauses are almost always accompanied by snoring between apnea episodes, although not everyone who snores has this condition. Sleep apnea can also be characterized by choking sensations. The frequent interruptions of deep, restorative sleep often lead to early morning headaches and excessive daytime sleepiness.

Sleep Apnea
Sleep apnea is a common disorder in which breathing stops during sleep for 10 seconds or more, sometimes more than 300 times a night. The hallmark of the disorder is excessive daytime sleepiness and compromised quality of life, including significant social and emotional problems. The two types of sleep apnea "obstructive" and "central" are thought to have different mechanisms. Obstructive sleep apnea may represent cessation of breathing due to mechanical blockage of the airway, while central sleep apnea appears to be related to a malfunction of the brain's normal signal to breathe. Symptoms of sleep apnea may include restless sleep, loud, heavy snoring (often interrupted by silence and then gasps), falling asleep while driving and/or during the day (at work, watching TV, etc.), morning headaches, loss of energy, trouble concentrating, irritability, forgetfulness, mood or behavior changes, anxiety or depression, obesity, and decreased interest in sex. Not all people with sleep apnea experience all of these symptoms and not everyone who has these symptoms has sleep apnea. However, it is recommended that people who are experiencing even a few symptoms visit their physician for evaluation. Prompt and proper diagnosis of sleep apnea is an important first step to treating the disorder. Potential consequences of sleep apnea include hypertension, coronary artery disease, myocardial infarction, stroke, psychiatric problems, impotence, cognitive dysfunction, memory loss, and death.

Diagnosis and Treatment of Obstructive Sleep Apnea
Obstructive sleep apnea occurs when breathing stops during sleep, perhaps hundreds of times a night. About 75% of the patients seen each year at sleep disorders laboratories are diagnosed with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). OSA usually occurs because tissues of the throat and mouth improperly block the airway. Less common is another type of sleep apnea, central sleep apnea, which appears to be related to a malfunction of the brain’s normal signal to breathe. Sleep-disordered breathing is strongly associated with high blood pressure, coronary heart disease, heart attack and stroke, as well as compromised quality of life and significant social and emotional problems. OSA is very common in children, occurring with symptoms such as poor attention, behavioral problems, delayed growth and snoring. Often, enlarged tonsils and adenoids (growths of lymph node tissue in the upper throat) are the cause. Abnormal snoring and excessive sleepiness are two of the major symptoms of sleep apnea. The result of sleep apnea is frequent awakening, which causes restless sleep. Sleep apnea sufferers may report not feeling refreshed when they awake in the morning or frequently falling asleep during the day, which can be very dangerous when driving. Many patients with sleepiness are unaware of a problem. A careful history may be required to differentiate sleepiness from OSA.

What is sleep apnea?
People with sleep apnea stop breathing for 10 to 30 seconds at a time while they are sleeping. These short stops in breathing can happen up to 400 times every night! If you have sleep apnea, the periods of not breathing may make you wake up from deep sleep. If you are waking up all night long, you aren't getting enough rest from your sleep. There are two kinds of sleep apnea: obstructive apnea and central apnea. Obstructive sleep apnea is the most common type. Nine out of 10 people with sleep apnea have this type of apnea. If you have obstructive apnea, something is blocking the passage or windpipe (called the trachea) that brings air into your body. You keep trying to breathe, but you can't get enough air because of the blockage. Your windpipe might be blocked by your tongue, tonsils or uvula (the little piece of flesh that hangs down in the back of your throat). It might also be blocked by a large amount of fatty tissue in the throat or even by relaxed throat muscles. Central sleep apnea is rare. This type is called central apnea because it is related to the function of the central nervous system. If you have this type of apnea, the muscles you use to breathe don't get the "go-ahead" signal from your brain. Either the brain doesn't send the signal, or the signal gets interrupted.

Doctors Should Screen Kids for Snoring and Sleep Apnea
Mon Apr 1,11:48 AM ET
By Melissa Schorr
NEW YORK ( Reuters Health ) - For the first time, the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) is recommending that doctors screen all children for snoring to determine if they might be at risk of obstructive sleep apnea, a temporary collapse of the upper airway that occurs during sleep. Symptoms of the condition include snoring, often with pauses, snorts or gasps as breathing temporarily stops and restarts. "Our hope is this will raise awareness of this condition among pediatricians so more children will be diagnosed," AAP committee chair Dr. Carole L. Marcus, director of the pediatric sleep center at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, Maryland, told Reuters Health.

Pressure equalization tubes are used to recreate the function of the body's own eustachian tube . In brief, the eustacian tube acts as a conduit that connects the middle ear to the air pressure of the outside world. When the eustacian tube works properly it protects the eardrum from distortion or rupture. When the eustacian tube fails to function correctly it can cause problems ranging from mild hearing loss to severe life threatening problems.

Case Study, by Lt. Col. Mustafa Alan, MD
Abstract . Sleep apnea is a serious, potentially life-threatening condition that contributes to a significant number of automobile deaths and other major accidents each year in the US. An estimated 18 million Americans suffer from sleep apnea. It is important for aviation medical examiners to be aware of its implications, which include the potential for sudden incapacitation during flight.
A 65-YEAR-OLD , black male (height 70 in., weight 215 lbs.), with 800 hours of total pilot time applied for a renewal of his third-class FAA airman medical certificate on 6/15/99. On examination, he was found to have arthritis, high blood pressure, congestive heart failure, and sleep apnea. Medications included prednisone (3 mg per day) for arthritis, Lanoxin (0.25 mg per day) and Lotensin (10 mg per day) for a heart problem and hypertension. His near and distant vision were 20/20 with correctional lenses. Hearing in the right ear was normal, but the left ear was deaf. The other findings were normal. The pilot's sleep apnea problem began 7 years ago. His complaints were as follows: loud snoring during sleep, leg cramps, dyspepsia, and awakening from sleep. On 11/9/98, an attended overnight sleep study was done to determine the sleep apnea severity. The study was performed with continuous monitoring of the EEG (2 channels) and EOG (2 channels), facial EMG (with nasal air flow measured by thermistor), respiratory efforts utilizing thoracic and abdominal strain gauges, and arterial oxyhemoglobin saturation measured by oximetry. Leg EMG were included in this montage. Sleep is judged by EEG, EOG, and EMG criteria. The results are shown in

Keywords: sleep apnea, OSA, sleep disordered breathing, mood, affective disorders Outline Abstract Abstract Depression in OSA OSA in depression Sleep architecture in depression and OSA ... References For over two decades clinical studies have been conducted which suggest the existence of a relationship between depression and Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA). Recently, Ohayon underscored the evidence for a link between these two disorders in the general population, showing that 800 out of 100,000 individuals had both, a breathing-related sleep disorder and a major depressive disorder, with up to 20% of the subjects presenting with one of these disorders also having the other. In some populations, depending on age, gender and other demographic and health characteristics, the prevalence of both disorders may be even higher: OSA may affect more than 50% of individuals over the age of 65, and significant depressive symptoms may be present in as many as 26% of a community-dwelling population of older adults.

Snore/Stress Relieving Device (SSRD)
Dr. Farhad Hakimi, a board certified maxillofacial prosthodontist, began to study respiratory obstructive sleep disorders when a colleague referred a patient to him who suffered from obstructive sleep apnea but did not want to undergo surgery. Dr. Hakimi recognized that the problem for most people suffering from these disorders was the tongue sliding backward in the mouth. Using expertise gained from 15 years as a Professor of Dentistry at New York University, he designed an innovative oral device called the Snore/Stress Relieving Device (SSRD). The SSRD is designed to slightly reposition and stabilize the lower jaw and tongue, thus freeing the air passage for comfortable breathing. This invention was patented and recently was approved by the U.S. Patent Office. The SSRD is a highly effective, non-invasive treatment for snoring and obstructive sleep apnea.
