In a person's life, sleep accounts for nearly 1/3 of the time, and its quality is closely related to human health. This shows how important sleep is to everyone.
This article is about a series of treatment methods for sleep breathing, and it is recommended to collect it and read it again.
During sleep breathing, the airflow moves in the narrow airway to generate noise, and the soft tissues such as the soft palate and the tongue vibrate under the action of the airflow, which together form the snoring sound.
Therefore, the essence of snoring is the narrowing of the airway during sleep.
When the airway is narrowed to a certain extent, the airway completely collapses and atresia occurs, which is obstructive sleep apnea.
Repeated apnea during sleep can lead to a lack of oxygen at night, which in turn causes repeated awakenings and interrupts sleep. In addition, due to repeated interruption of sleep, there will be less deep sleep, poor sleep quality, and a series of physiological changes such as daytime sleepiness, which is called obstructive sleep apnea syndrome.
The disease is one of the risk factors leading to hypertension and cardiovascular and cerebrovascular embolism, which is potentially harmful.
It can be seen that sleep apnea is an "upgraded version" of snoring and a potentially harmful disease. And simple snoring is not a disease, called benign snoring.
Therefore, snoring is not the performance of sound sleep, but the possibility of sleep hypoxia.
