obstructive sleep apnea syndrome
I believe that many friends have experienced snoring when they have a cold, rhinitis, tonsillitis, drinking or exhaustion. Generally speaking, this kind of snoring is smooth and even, harmless to the body. Today, I will teach you how to identify dangerous snoring!
While sleeping like this, appearSnoring that is suddenly interrupted, discontinuous, and lasts for more than ten seconds or more is professionally called obstructive sleep apnea, which is what we commonly call snoring.
People who suffer from this disease are very uncomfortable no matter night or day.
When sleeping at night, there will be continuous loud snoring, suffocation, suffocation, sleep structure disorder, restlessness, hyperactivity, and increased nocturia.
During the daytime, dizziness and headaches occur upon waking up in the morning, lack of energy during the day, falling asleep at work, inattention when studying, and even accidents when driving!
If you or your family members have the above symptoms, you must pay attention! This is not necessarily because he is lazy or sleepy, it may be that he is sick, and he needs to go to the ENT specialist clinic for further diagnosis as soon as possible.
sleep monitoring check
Your doctor will do an evaluation based on the symptoms you describe, and then they will do a sleep monitoring exam.andNighttime sleep apnea monitoring examination is a golden key for us to get rid of the fog of snoring.
Snoring must not be sleeping soundly, it may be snoring!
Let me take you to look at the sleep monitoring data of a patient with severe snoring to see how many times he has apnea in one night? Each red straight line in the graph represents an apnea event, and the monitoring data report graph of this patient shows that it is red and purple.
Everyone can now experience the feeling of apnea with me, try to take a breath, how long can you hold it? I can last for 1 or 2 minutes at most, but when this patient sleeps, the longest breath holding time is actually as long as 5 or 6 minutes. Such a serious breath holding, that is, the number of apnea is as many as 200 times a night! It is conceivable that this can sleep well? If this is the case for a long time, how much damage to the body should it have!
At this point, everyone understands, snoring must not be a sound sleep, it may be snoring, it is a disease, and it must be cured!
1/3 of the life is spent in sleep, based on the 90-year-old life expectancy, almost 30 years are spent in sleep, so, in the end, I want to say, pay attention to health, pay attention to sleep, pay attention to the health of your loved ones Snore a little.
“Doctor’s Kindness” Keynote SpeechHubei Radio and Television Changjiang Kangyang
During this period of time, I have received many concerns from family and friends, are your doctors crazy busy? If you have to go to work even when you are sick, can your body handle it? You must pay attention to rest. Only when you are cured can the patient be cured. Indeed, in the three years of fighting against the epidemic, we medical staff have become soldiers and heroes in the eyes of everyone, but I think that we are actually a group of ordinary people who shine in ordinary positions. Today I will share with you a short story that happened in our department during this period. I remember that at the beginning of last month, at the beginning of the adjustment of the epidemic prevention and control policy, as the vanguard of medical treatment in the province, my Wuhan Union Hospital, as always, undertook the treatment of a large number of critically ill patients. Under the unified coordination and arrangement of the hospital, my ear and nose While maintaining daily diagnosis and treatment, the Department of Throat and Throat also receives critically ill patients. Every medical colleague is doing his best to help his patients get better as soon as possible. I clearly remember that Mei Xiaohu, who was usually laughing and joking, comforted the grandfather on the bed while having a fever, “Be optimistic, you will be able to go home soon!” I still remember that the head nurse took the oxygen generator at home to The emergency in the ward, I still remember, in the WeChat group of the department, a new mother who was still in confinement sent a message to the director: The department is short of people, I sign up! This is us, medical workers in the new era, whether in the face of the epidemic or in our daily work, we will do our best! Every ordinary but great medical staff is like a cell, forming a brave guard to maintain the health of the people; like bricks and stones, they have built the Great Wall of Steel for the health cause in the new era! The epidemic will pass, but we are always here!
