Decrease the Symptoms of Sleep Apnea

by Phil Hardesty New research is showing that exercise not only helps the quality of our sleep, but it can improve conditions such as obstructive sleep apnea, or OSA. What is OSA? Obstructive sleep apnea is a condition where a person's breathing frequently pauses during sleep. One of the most noticeable sign of OSA is snoring. Other signs and symptoms of OSA are: Excessive daytime fatigue and sleepiness Observed episodes of breathing cessation during sleep Abrupt awakenings accompanied by shortness of breath Awakening with a dry mouth or sore throat Awakening with chest pain Sudden waking with gasping for breath Morning headache Difficulty concentrating during the day Experiencing mood changes, such as depression or irritability Difficulty staying asleep (insomnia) There is a growing body of information about the negative effects that poor sleep has on our health. Research done by scientists at the University of Wisconsin-Madison School of Medicine and Public Health over an 18-year period uncovered an alarming connection between sleep apnea, hypertension, stroke and depression. The study identified that people with severe untreated sleep apnea have as much as five times more risk of cardiovascular death. The good news is that exercise can have a positive impact on sleep, including those with sleep apnea. A 2014 meta-analysis published the journal Lung found that exercise, including aerobic exercise and strength training at varying degrees of intensity and frequency, has...

CONCLUSIONS: Awareness of possible repercussions of the celiac trunk stenosis to peripancreatic arteries should be elevated. Restoration of physiological blood flow by removing pathologic anatomy should be performed. Since there is no correlation between the size of a visceral aneurysm and the risk of rupture, having a high postrupture mortality, pancreaticoduodenal artery aneurysms should be treated even if asymptomatic. Surgical treatment remains the mainstay treatment of the Dunbar syndrome complicated by visceral aneurysms. PMID: 31961777 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Dulin, Elizaveta A. KlimanovaAbstractWith an exception of few reports, the plasma concentration of ouabain and marinobufagenin, mostly studied cardiotonic steroids (CTS) assessed by immunoassay techniques, is less than 1 nM. During the last 3 decades, the implication of these endogenous CTS in the pathogenesis of hypertension and other volume-expanded disorders is widely disputed. The threshold for inhibition by CTS of human an...

Jie, S.U.N. Xuan, X.U. BiaoAbstract and KeywordsHypertension (HT) is the most common public-health challenge and shows a high incidence around the world. Cardiovascular diseases are the leading cause of mortality and morbidity among the elderly (age> 65 years) in the United States. Now, there is widespread acceptance of the causal link between HT and acute myocardial infarction (MI). This is the first data-mining study to id...
