apnea, sleep
Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is the apnea (abnormal, temporary cessation of respiration) caused by intermittent physical obstruction of the upper airway of the nose and pharynx (basically the area of the throat from the voicebox to the rear openings of the nasal passages) due to chronic adenoidal or tonsillar enlargement or due to neurological or muscular problems of the area of the soft palate and tissues of the pharynx. In children it is most often associated with chronic adenoidal enlargement and/or obesity; older children and adults with sleep apnea are more likely to have neuromuscular problems or to be obese. The upper airway region (nose, mouth, and throat above the larynx) is collapsible to enable us to talk and swallow. More than than 30 pairs of muscles control the degree of openness of the airway in a process of balancing the natural tendency to collapse with the need to maintain an open airway. Certain structural abnormalities - enlarged adenoids or tonsils , abnormalities of facial bone structure, or obesity can disrupt this balance in the direction of more easy obstruction of the airway. Severe disruptions produce

    Sleep apnea can cause depression
    Sleep apnea can cause symptoms of apparent clinical depression which may respond quickly to treatment of the sleep disorder. A knowledge of the intellectual and emotional impact of sleep apnea may be important in making a correct differential diagnosis. Unfortunately, many physicians, psychiatrists, and psychologists may be unaware of this connection which may lead to apparent symptoms of depression. If there is a possibility that a patient's depression is caused by sleep apnea, they should undergo evaluation and, if necessary, receive treatment for their sleep disorder. In addition, people with sleep apnea may need support in addressing emotional aspects of treatment and recovery. Informed, trained therapists can provide essential therapy and support to the patient and the patient's family in the recovery process.
    The invisible epidemic of sleep apnea and snoring

According the National Commission on Sleep Disorders Research: "Forty million Americans are chronically ill with various sleep disorders...Sleep apnea alone is the cause of excessive daytime sleepiness experienced by almost 20 million Americans... Overwhelming evidence from testimony and specific surveys suggests that the vast majority of Americans with sleep disorders remain undiagnosed and untreated. ... " (

    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.

  • What Is It? Symptoms Diagnosis Expected Duration ... Additional Info
  • What Is It? Sleep apnea is a disorder in which people stop breathing for short periods of time during sleep. The periods when breathing stops are called apneas. They generally last between 10 and 30 seconds. In severe cases, apneas can happen many hundreds of times each night. They disrupt the person's ability to get a good night's sleep. This can lead to a loss of alertness, which can lead to accidents. People with untreated sleep apnea are up to seven times more likely to be involved in motor-vehicle accidents. People with untreated sleep apnea also have a much higher risk of developing high blood pressure.

    What is Obstructive sleep apnea? The most common kind of sleep apnea is called Obstructive sleep apnea Syndrome. sleep apnea ARTICLES.
    Updated March 10, 1999
    Sleep Apnea Articles UPPP Surgery LAUP Surgery ... A Doctor with Sleep Apnea reviews recent research for fellow patients What is Obstructive Sleep Apnea? The most common kind of sleep apnea is called Obstructive Sleep Apnea Syndrome. Sleep apnea means "cessation of breath." It is characterized by repetitive episodes of upper airway obstruction that occur during sleep, usually associated with a reduction in blood oxygen saturation. In other words, the airway becomes obstructed at several possible sites. The upper airway can be obstructed by excess tissue in the airway, large tonsils, a large tongue and usually includes the airway muscles relaxing and collapsing when asleep. Another site of obstruction can be the nasal passages. Sometimes the structure of the jaw and airway can be a factor in sleep apnea. What are the symptoms?
    • excessive daytime sleepiness
    • frequent episodes of obstructed breathing during sleep. (The patient may be unaware of this symptom usually the bed partner is extremely aware of this).
    Associated features may include:
    • loud snoring
    • morning headaches
    • unrefreshing sleep
    • a dry mouth upon awakening
    • chest retraction during sleep in young children (chest pulls in)
    • high blood pressure
    • overweight
    • irritability
    • change in personality
    • depression
    • difficulty concentrating
    • excessive perspiring during sleep
    • heartburn
    • reduced libido
    • insomnia
    • frequent nocturnal urination (nocturia)
    • restless sleep
    • nocturnal snorting, gasping, choking (may wake self up)
