Have you ever asked yourself how and why we sleep?
Overall, sleep influences your health and quality of life, aging process, etc.
Sometimes, fatigue should be understood as an alarm sign of the underling sleeping disorder.
Modern sleep medicine has identified up to 88 different forms of sleep & apnea disorder. It is important to understand that sleep disorder can be a serious and life-long medical condition that can impact every aspect of your life.
Average person spends about 26 years of his life - asleep.
Have you ever asked yourself why we sleep? Although science has not been able to completely answer this, it has demonstrated its key role in the performance of our memory for example. During sleep the growth hormones are released, which are essential for cell growth. This means that if we do not sleep well, our quality of life will decree, we will age faster and be more prone to different disease.
Three key questions are:
- How we sleep?
- How much is enough?
- Why we sleep in the first place?
Many people find it difficult to assess whether their daytime tiredness and sleepiness is still within the normal range. Overview: When should fatigue be understood as an alarm sign?
If you are unsure as to whether your symptoms require medical attention, the following recommendation applies from a sleep medicine standpoint:
- If you suffer from increased fatigue for more than three to four weeks for no apparent reason
- If you have to take few "microsleeps" during the day
When we go to sleep, our musculature upper airways relax. Sometimes during breathing this causes constriction at the level of the soft palate and the tongue base, by which they start to vibrate loudly: producing snore sound.
Although most snorers do not exceed a noise level of 20-30 decibels (dB), peak values of more than 80-90 dB can be observed which constitutes the volume of for example, busy highway.
They will take care of you
