health care makes the world happy.

Sleep is like closing a window, so that it can be opened with passion after recuperation. But the apnea that occurs in sleep can not only make people feel comforted from sleep, but also lead to more fatigue. For this reason, respiratory experts remind you to pay attention to sleep, and pay more attention to breathing in sleep.

Some people sleep silently, while others snore like thunder. Is snoring sick?

2% – 4% of people have sleep apnea

Professor Xiao Yi, director of the respiratory department of Peking Union Medical College Hospital, told the reporter that most snoring is pure snoring and benign, while 10% – 30% of people snore intermittently and have apnea, which is a typical symptom of obstructive sleep apnea syndrome.

At present, obstructive sleep apnea syndrome has received more and more attention from the medical community. According to foreign statistics, 2-4 people in every 100 people suffer from this disease. There are also an endless stream of domestic doctors. It is reported that it takes an average of one month to make an appointment for sleep monitoring at Peking Union Medical College Hospital.

poor sleep breathing is harmful.

Speaking of the occurrence of obstructive sleep apnea syndrome, Xiao Yi explained that when people are awake, the pharyngeal tissue is tense, so they will not block their breathing; After falling asleep, some people’s pharynx relaxes or because of tissue hypertrophy, part of the airway is blocked, and snoring will occur; If the airway is completely blocked, the airflow cannot enter the lungs, which will cause apnea.

In the case of severe oxygen shortage, the brain will briefly wake up the body to the point where it can just tighten the throat, so as to remove airway obstruction. With a loud wheezing sound, breathing will return to normal. In this cycle, the breathing becomes very shallow, the sleep is fragmented, and the body is tired after waking up in the morning. In the long run, because the body often lacks oxygen, lungs, hearts and other organs will be damaged.
