Sleep quality reflects health status
Hypertension, old people, healthy insomnia, polyp, polyp, sleep disease, adequate sleep, related experts, causing the elderly to sleep well, initially brain organic diseases such as hypertension, cerebral infarction, etc., these diseases reduce brain blood flow, causing brain metabolismThe disorder causes symptoms of insomnia.
Systemic diseases or psychological causes can also affect sleep.
Older people, like young people, also need adequate sleep, which is an important factor in health and longevity.
Older people can’t sleep, and many are due to double apnea.
Temporary apnea in young people is almost always caused by obesity, and most of the elderly are due to the sluggishness of the nose and throat after the old body declines, and the tongue roots fall, causing the upper trachea to separate and causing apnea.
Older people on the upper airway will bring symptoms such as hypoxia, poor ventilation, suffocation, apnea and excessive arousal response, which is one of the reasons why many elderly people will wake up soon after falling asleep.
Therefore, experts especially reminded that if the elderly with poor sleep are accompanied by symptoms such as hernia, discomfort, sweating, increased number of nocturia and lack of sleep, it is best to go to the hospital for sleep monitoring to find out the real cause and step on it.Good symptomatic treatment.
Experts have done experiments, an elderly person with severe sleep apnea disease in the elderly, an extended apnea in sleep for more than 3 minutes, and a physically strong person will die if not breathing for 4 minutes.
It can be seen that most of the so-called “endless” elderly people have been killed by sleep diseases.
In daily life, we have heard that some old people don’t wake up when they sleep.
Dr. Wang Yuzhou, deputy director of the Beijing Tongren Hospital, secretary-general of the China Sleep Research Association, explained that from the perspective of sleep, this “endless” is not unrelated to sleep-disordered breathing.
He said that some elderly people have obvious symptoms of snoring when they are young, but as they get older, the soft palate becomes harder and harder, and the vibration is getting weaker and weaker. So the snoring sound will become smaller and smaller. When the soft palate does not vibrate, the old man willNo snoring.
For the elderly with dual sleep apnea, no snoring is a serious hazard, because when he is apnea during sleep, the family is not easy to detect.
