Extractions: Lawrence Martin, M.D., FACP, FCCP For what seemed ages piled on ages, I lay there, frozen with the most awful fears, not daring to drag away my hand; yet ever thinking that if I could but stir it one single inch, the horrid spell would be broken. I knew not how this consciousness at last glided away from me; but waking in the morning, I shudderingly remembered it all, and for days and weeks and months afterwards I lost myself in confounding attempts to explain the mystery.

We both experienced what is known as "sleep paralysis." My first episode occurred many years ago, probably before I went to medical school. Since then I've had the experience three or four more times, a frequency of about once a decade. Each time is terrifying. I suddenly am awake and aware of the bed and my situation, but realize I cannot move. It is not a dream; I desperately want to move but no muscles respond. I can breathe, but on at least one occasion my head was under the blanket, and I felt a dread of suffocation.

"I sleep eat." "Oh?" I raise my eyebrows slightly, indicating, 'that's interesting,' and hastily skim through her thick office chart. She has been seeing a psychiatrist on and off for years.

Extractions: 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:
Extractions: Sleep apnea is a sleeping disorder in which a person stops breathing repeatedly during their sleep, sometimes hundreds of times during the night, and often for a minute or longer. A sufferer of sleep apnea has frequent episodes (up to 400-500 per night) in which he or she stops breathing. Sleep apnea warning signs include excessive snoring, choking, or gasping during sleep. There are three different types of sleep apnea; obstructive sleep apnea, central sleep apnea, and mixed (a combination of the two). The Greek word "apnea" literally means "without breath." With each apnea event, the sleeper's brain briefly arouses in order to resume breathing, causing sleep to be extremely fragmented and of poor quality. Sleep apnea is a serious, potentially life-threatening condition that can cause many health problems if left untreated.

Extractions: BACKGROUND The central nervous system abnormalities in patients with sleep disorders to be discussed below can be caused by several mechanisms. First, patients may have less sleep than needed (i.e., disorders causing insomnia). Second, patients may have sleep fragmentation (i.e., obstructive sleep apnea). Third, patients may have abnormal regulation of sleep/wake (i.e., narcolepsy). These disorders can all lead to excessive daytime sleepiness. The excessive daytime sleepiness can cause, or be a correlate (by unclear mechanisms) of abnormal cognitive function. The sleep deprivation literature confirms that sleepy brain may not function normally.
Extractions: 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
Extractions: WASHINGTON - People who die in their sleep may stop breathing because they have lost too many brain cells, U.S. researchers reported Monday. Sleep apnea - a condition in which people stop breathing for long stretches of time in their sleep - may sometimes be caused by the destruction of cells in the brain stem, where autonomic functions such as breathing are controlled, they said. Tests on rats showed that the loss of key brain stem cells that die off with age caused such disrupted sleep that the animals eventually stopped breathing completely. The same thing may be happening in elderly people, said neurobiologist Jack Feldman of the University of California Los Angeles. "We wanted to reveal the mechanism behind central sleep apnea, which most commonly affects people after age 65," Feldman said in a statement. "Unlike obstructive sleep apnea, in which a person stops breathing when their airway collapses, central sleep apnea is triggered by something going awry in the brain's breathing center."

Extractions: Sleep apnea occurs when breathing stops during sleep for at least 10 seconds at least five times an hour. Mild sleep apnea causes few symptoms, but the condition may lead to low oxygen levels, which can be life threatening. Sleep apnea is more common in people who smoke, drink alcohol or are overweight. It may also occur in people at high altitudes. There are two types of sleep apnea: "obstructive sleep apnea" and "central sleep apnea." Obstructive sleep apnea is due to a blockage in the airways. Central sleep apnea is caused by a problem with the nerves that control breathing. In some cases a mixture of both types of sleep apnea may occur. The two types of sleep apnea Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) affects primarily men between the ages of 30 and 50. It occurs when air passage in the upper respiratory tract becomes obstructed during sleep (obstruction is caused by soft tissue of the pharynx relaxing and blocking the flow of air). It prevents breathing until low levels of oxygen in the blood cause a person to respond by waking up and taking a deep, snorting breath. Being overweight or having a small tongue or mouth can contribute to the obstruction. In children enlarged tonsils or adenoids are the most common cause of obstruction
