A NEW WAY TO STOP SNORING SO YOU CAN HAVE A GOOD SLEEP
While many think that it is a negligible annoyance, researchers have proved that it can be precarious to our health. This is because 18 million Americans are related to OSA. People who suffer from OSA frequently and abruptly stop breathing during the night due to complete or partial blockage of their airway. This blockage occurs when the jaw, throat, and tongue muscles relax, blocking the airway used to breathe. The result of which is lack of oxygen, continuing for about a minute which happens hundred times every night. But most of the time people wake-up after this complete or partial obstruction because it leaves them completely exhausted.
OSA IS LINKED WITH HEALTH PROBLEMS LIKE:
- HEART ATTACK
- ACID RE-FLUX
- MEMORY LOSS
- FREQUENT NIGHT TIME URINATION
People above the age of 35 are more prone to this disorder and risk.
Diagnosis and treatment of OSA can be expensive and is not always covered by insurance. You will have stay at a sleep clinic, requiring an overnight visit which costs up-to $ 5,000. The Doctor will then carefully analyse the data and will give you one of the several treatments. It will include a procedure, in which you will need to wear a CPAP device that pushes air through your nose and mouth while you sleep to keep airways open, and may even include a painful surgery.
But now there is a more comfortable, less expensive and presumptuous treatment option available. A study made by EASTERN MEDICAL SCHOOL'S DIVISION OF SLEEP MEDICINE in the 'JOURNAL OF SLEEP MEDICINE' has found out that by wearing a simple chinstrap while you sleep can to an extent be an impressive treatment for OSA.
The CHIN STRAP which is now manufactured by a company called - 'MY SNORING SOLUTION'. This works by supporting the lower jaw and tongue, preventing blockage of the airway. Its made up of and high-tech, lightweight, and super comfortable material. Using the Chin strap has helped thousands of people to get a good relief from snoring which has given them a good night sleep, resulting in good health.
