About Sleep Apnea WHAT IS SLEEP APNEA? Sleep apnea is a serious, potentially life-threatening condition that is far more common than generally understood. Early recognition and treatment of sleep apnea is important because it may be associated with irregular heartbeat, high blood pressure, heart attack, and stroke. Sleep apnea may be characterized by choking sensations. The frequent interruptions of deep, restorative sleep often lead to early morning headaches and excessive daytime sleepiness. Certain mechanical and structural problems in the airway may cause interruptions (apneic events) in breathing during sleep. In some people, apnea occurs when the throat muscles and tongue relax during sleep and partially block the opening of the airway. When the muscles of the soft palate at the base of the tongue and the uvula (the small fleshy tissue hanging from the center of the back of the throat) relax and sag, the airway becomes blocked, making breathing labored and noisy and even stopping it altogether. Sleep apnea also can occur in obese people when an excess amount of tissue in the airway causes it to be narrowed. With a narrowed airway, the person continues his or her efforts to breathe, but air cannot easily flow into or out of the nose or mouth. Unknown to the person, this results in heavy snoring, periods of no breathing, and frequent arousals (causing abrupt changes from deep sleep to light sleep).

Sleep apnea is a condition in which breathing is repeatedly interrupted during sleep. The time period during which the breathing stops usually lasts from 10 to 30 seconds. When these episodes occur repeatedly, sleep apnea can seriously disrupt the quality of sleep. Diagnosis

Treatment of snoring, sleep apnea, insomnia, night terrors, sleep walking, bed wetting and narcolepsy.
At Texas Regional Sleep Disorder Center, our approach to snoring and sleep apnea is comprehensive. Snoring is caused by an obstruction of air while one Is sleeping as it passes through the nose and to the back of the throat, or pharynx. Many times the snoring is not serious enough to cause any physical illness. Other times the snoring is a symptom of a very severe obstruction of breathing and the body has to work to breath to maintain normal bodily functions. If one has sleep apnea, breathing can stop for up to five minutes and during this time, when the breathing has stopped, the pulse increases and the blood pressure increases so as to give emergency needs of oxygen to the body. If this process Is allowed to progress then the individual having this is more prone to permanent high blood pressure, cardiovascular disease, leading to stroke and sudden death. Sleep apnea can affect people of all ages. Children get sleep apnea from enlarged tonsils and adenoids. This can happen in a newborn. This is usually manifested in children by fatigue, irritability, and of course, the audible snoring and breathing sensations. Breathing obstruction can be either in the nose or in the oral pharynx. In the nose, it is caused by cartilaginous or bony obstruction of the nasal septum which divides the nose into right and left compartments. It also can be caused by chronic sinusitis when one assumes the recumbent position, the infectious material rolls out of the paranasal sinuses and stops us the nose making one breathe through their mouth. After a period of time, this gasping for air through the mouth causes elongation of the soft palate and uvula, and later the tongue will press against the soft palate and uvula which has been elongated by this sleep apnea process, and breathing will stop.

Sleep Apnea
What is sleep apnea?
Sleep apnea is a serious sleep problem. If you have it, you stop breathing for more than 10 seconds at a time many times while you sleep. Another term for this problem is obstructive sleep apnea. Sleep apnea affects between 2 and 10% of people. It is more common in men than in women. It is also more common in people who are overweight, but there are many people with normal weight who have sleep apnea.

sleep apnea in Renal Failure. sleep apnea is common in renal failure patients among those with a PLMSI less than 20. sleep apnea Links
Sleep Apnea in Renal Failure Sleep apnea is common in renal failure patients, and may be associated with coronary artery disease and stroke, arrhythmias and both systemic and pulmonary hypertension. It could contribute to the high mortality from cardiovascular disease in the dialysis population, but these answers, as well as the specific causes of sleep apnea in ESRD are unknown. The following links not only validate the frequency of sleep apnea in ESRD patients, but also offer a screening questionaire, diagnostic criteria and management guidelines. Twenty-nine consecutive patients with ESRD reporting disrupted sleep or daytime sleepiness underwent all-night polysomnography. The PLMS index and the total number of arrousals per hour predicted mortality. An index of greater than 20 was associated with a 20 month survival rate of 50%, compared with a 90% survival rate among those with a PLMSI less than 20.

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. The success rate for patients using the

Pressure Equalization Tubes:
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.

Sleep apnea is a serious sleep disorder in which the upper airway passages are blocked repeatedly during the night. It's most often caused by enlarged tonsils and adenoids (glands in the throat just behind the nose); when your child's muscles relax at night, these oversized glands can temporarily block air from getting to his lungs. Other causes of airway blockages include frequent illness ( ear infections sore throats , and tonsillitis allergies , being overweight How to tell if your child has sleep apnea
The list of symptoms for sleep apnea is long. The most telling signs are snoring and difficulty breathing coughs or chokes at night, is a restless sleeper, and sweats profusely when he's asleep. Combined with any of the above symptoms, repeated night-wakings can be a sign of sleep apnea. Because they have trouble breathing, children with sleep apnea may stir more often, waking up to get the air they need. If you think your child might have sleep apnea but aren't sure, look to his daytime behavior for more clues. Children with apnea are often

Facts About...Sleep Apnea
What Is Sleep Apnea? Sleep apnea 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 respirations. Obstructive sleep apnea is far more common and occurs when air cannot flow into or out of the person's nose or mouth although efforts to breathe continue. In a given night, the number of involuntary breathing pauses or "apneic 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.
