SLEEP ~ “The Balm of Hurt Minds”
..ayon yan kay Shakespere
Yung mga tao raw na may severe form ng apnea ( Sleep apnea means that you often stop breathing for 10 seconds or longer during sleep.) ay may risk na mamatay several times kaysa dun sa wlang sleeping disorder..
“This is not a condition that kills you acutely. It is a condition that erodes your health over time” Sinabi ni Dr. Michael J. Twery, director of the National Center on Sleep Disorders Research, sa isang telephone interview..
For people with apnea, their upper airway becomes narrowed or blocked periodically during sleep. That keeps air from reaching the lungs. In some cases, breathing stops for seconds to a minute or so; the pauses in breathing disrupt sleep and prevent adequate amounts of oxygen from entering the bloodstream.
“When you stop breathing in your sleep you don’t know it, it doesn’t typically wake you up,” Twery said. Instead, it can move a person from deep sleep to light sleep, when breathing resumes. But the overall sleep pattern is disturbed, and it can happen hundreds of times a night.
He said that a person typically will have four or five cycles per night of light sleep, deep sleep and REM (rapid eye movement) sleep, when most dreams occur. More deep sleep comes early in the night with more REM sleep closer to waking up. This pattern helps control hormones, metabolism and levels of stress.
