Sleep Disorder and Sleep Apnea Video

November 6, 2008

in Sleep Apnea, Videos

The above video is about 30 minutes long and goes over many different sleeping disorders. It has some great information on types of sleep, the need for sleep, the different types of medications and how they can effect you etc. I included it on my blog because it covers a lot of what we talk about on the cant sleep forums.

This next video talks about sleep apnea and the equipment used if you go the Cpap route. I am posting this video on the blog because it goes over some very interesting points about sleep apnea in children. A topic that very little is known about at this time.

I think my mother as sleep apnea and so does her doctor. She refuses to get tested. What should I do. Isn’t this disorder dangerous?

My father and brother wear a special sleep mask to bed for sleep apnea. My brother loves his and says he’s never felt so well rested in his life. My father doesn’t like his mask though and has been back to the specialist a few times to try to figure out what he’s doing wrong with either adjusting the fit or if there is a problem with the mask itself.

Chronic snoring is a strong indicator of sleep apnea and should be evaluated by a health professional. Since people with sleep apnea tend to be sleep deprived, they may suffer from sleeplessness and a wide range of other symptoms such as difficulty concentrating, depression, irritability, sexual dysfunction, learning and memory difficulties, and falling asleep while at work, on the phone, or driving. Left untreated, symptoms of sleep apnea can include disturbed sleep, excessive sleepiness during the day, high blood pressure, heart attack, congestive heart failure, cardiac arrhythmia, stroke or depression.’`”.
