All for the people’s health
All for the people’s happiness
In today's society, under the tremendous pressure of life and work, many people have poor sleep quality, and they are prone to snoring after falling asleep. This not only affects the rest of the people around you, but also harms your body.Physical health. The French health magazine "medisite" quoted the latest research results as saying that frequent snoring may cause a variety of respiratory diseases.
A new study from Umeå University in Sweden shows that long-term snoring can cause upper respiratory tract disease, swallowing dysfunction, and obstructive sleep apnea. Obstructive sleep apnea is a serious disease, usually accompanied by repeated upper airway obstruction, causing people to apnea during sleep. In addition, this disease also increases the risk of cardiovascular disease.
Researchers conducted a comparative test between people who snore frequently and people with sleep apnea syndrome. The results showed that the neuromuscular disease in the upper respiratory tract of these people was very obvious, and the nerves and muscles of the soft palate were also damaged. Because of the lack of "quiet sleep", it is difficult for the human body to repair damaged tissues, thus forming abnormal muscle tissue.
Currently, researchers are trying to find a cure for these respiratory diseases. They have begun to cultivate some muscle tissues and nerve cells and place them in a harmful environment in a vibrating state to simulate the process of human muscle damage in order to develop new treatment methods.
People who love snoring have poor memory
A new study by Australian scientists shows that severe snoring may affect people’s memory.
The research team of RMIT University selected 44 participants to conduct research. These participants are all patients with severe snoring and sleep apnea. The researchers asked patients to recall three experiences in their childhood, youth, and recent life, and scored them according to the level of details of the recall described by them, and then compared the scores with 44 peers without sleep apnea symptoms. It turns out that people with severe snoring can rememberThe details of the matter are less than those of the control group's peers, such as when talking about who attends their wedding, what is the specific address of the place they have lived in, etc. Specifically, 52.3% of sleep apnea patients can only evoke very general memories in the brain, while this proportion is only 18.9% of healthy people. Interestingly, the above phenomenon is limited to the participants' memories of their youth, and does not affect their memories of their childhood. Researchers pointed out that childhood memories are not affected, perhaps because apneas generally begin in youth.
Researchers pointed out that wearing a nasal mask while sleeping to keep the nasal airflow unobstructed is an effective way to deal with apnea. Future research aims to explore how to treat snoring to improve memory and even recall things that have been forgotten.
Remember 8 tips to prevent snoring
1. Enhance physical exercise and maintain goodliving habit.
2. Stay away from alcohol and tobacco. Smoking can cause aggravation of respiratory symptoms, drinking can aggravate snoring, nocturnal breathing disorders and hypoxemia, especially drinking before going to bed. Only by keeping the nose and pharynx unobstructed can snoring be reduced.
3. For obese people, actively reduce weight and strengthen exercise. Our experience is to lose 5% to 10% of body weight.
4. Most patients with snoring have decreased blood oxygen levels, so they are often accompanied by high blood pressure, arrhythmia, increased blood viscosity, and increased heart burden, which can easily lead to cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases. Therefore, we must pay attention to blood pressure Monitoring, taking antihypertensive drugs on time.
5. It is forbidden to take sedative and sleeping drugs before going to bed, so as not to aggravate the inhibition of the respiratory center regulation.
6. Adopt a side-lying sleeping position, especially the right-side sleeping position, to avoid falling after the tongue, soft palate, and uvula are relaxed during sleep, which will aggravate upper airway blockage. A small ball can be placed on the back during sleep to help compulsorily maintain sleep in a lateral position.
7. After surgery, patients should eat soft food as the mainstay, and do not eat hot food. Avoid strenuous activities.
8. Patients with snoring should also prevent colds and treat nasal congestion diseases in time.
To adjust the three internal organs in total snoring
From the perspective of traditional Chinese medicine, sleep apnea syndrome with snoring as the main symptom is more common in people with obesity and a short neck. These people have phlegm damp constitution. The production of phlegm and dampness is closely related to the lungs, spleen and kidneys. Therefore, conditioning the three internal organs can eliminate phlegm and dampness and relieve the symptoms of snoring.
First, the lung is a place for gas exchange inside and outside the body, regulating the operation, distribution and excretion of human body water. The lung qi is promulgated, spreading the body fluid from the spleen to the body, and then the qi turns into sweat and is discharged from the body through the sweat holes. Lung failure, unable to communicate with water, waterIt will be excreted. Second, the turbid fluid produced during metabolism is transported to the lungs and kidneys in time through the transfer and dispersion of the spleen, thereby preventing the stagnant accumulation of water-damp turbid fluid in the body. Loss of health of the spleen will affect the transmission of water and liquid. Third, the kidney is a dirty water, which controls the balance and coordination of the entire body's water metabolism. If the kidney qi is lost, the water will not be vaporized and excreted.
Therefore, the dysfunction of the three internal organs, the abnormal movement of water and fluid in the body, the phlegm and the wetness running around, the inaccessibility of the neck makes the airway unsmooth and cause snoring, so snoring is not only what people think" "Fatigue". In treatment, it is necessary to invigorate the lungs and spleen, invigorate the kidneys and resolve phlegm. It is recommended that patients with severe snoring should go to a regular hospital in time and undergo differentiation of symptoms and signs under the guidance of professional doctors.
