Do You Know What Happens During Sleep??

Sleep is the time when our body and mind are at rest. Various physiological changes occur in our body during sleep. When we are awake the physiological factors of our body like temperature, blood pressure, oxygen level, glucose content and so on are at optimal levels to facilitate smooth body functioning. However, when sleeping, the level of these are reduced due to the lowering of functional demands.


http://www.thehealthysleep.in/physiological-changes-during-sleep/

Assessment Of Physiological Changes During Sleep

Many of the physiological variables like heart rate are irregular in our conscious state. These are slowed down and regularised during sleep. The status of various physiological changes occurring during sleep are as follows: -

Brain Activity

Studies on brain activity during sleep has been going on for quite some years. They have shown that the brain remains active throughout the sleeping hours. In fact, the rate of neuron activity is higher in REM state, stage of sleep associated with dreaming, than during the wake stage. The pattern of neuron activity might be the reason for the intensity associated with dreaming process.

Body Temperature

The temperature of our body is maintained at a certain level during the conscious state with functions such as sweating, changing blood flow, shivering and so on. This procedure of controlling temperature fluctuations is known as thermoregulation. During sleep our body temperature is known to reduce by about two Fahrenheit.

Breath Changes

Breathing during sleep is known to be regularised and slower than during the wakeful hour, when breathing patterns are affected by activity, emotions or stress.

Cardiovascular Activity

The cardiovascular activity varies during sleep and conscious hours. It varies during the different stages of sleep as well. The rate of cardiovascular activity is greater during REM stage of sleep.

Physiological Activity

Physiological activities like urine production are known to decrease during sleep. However, the rate of some activities contributing to growth like production of growth hormone, cell repair and the sort are known to increase during sleep.
The Healthy Sleep, is an advanced centre dealing with sleep related disorders and the first in India to provide Oral Appliance Treatment.

Are You Tired of Getting A Poor Night's Sleep

One of the most common problems faced by people during sleeping is Snoring. It may affect our day to day life negatively. It also affects the quality of sleep by spending energy on sleeping when one is supposed to save energy. Snoring is a type of sound produced due to obstructed breathing while sleeping in which the soft tissues behind the throat loses its muscle tone and starts to vibrate while breathing.    

 
http://www.thehealthysleep.in/sleep-disordered-breathing/#snoring



Generally, snoring is due to vibration of the soft palate. Air passes through airways results in lung strain to get required oxygen. The major factors which cause this obstructed breathing could be the posture of sleep, overweight, alcohol consumption, uses of antihistamines or sleeping pills, facial skeletal anomalies, enlarged tonsils or smoking.
 
Some people believe that apart from the disturbance that is caused by snoring, there is no other problem. But snoring could be an indication of a breathing problem or a problem related to the air tube or the passing way of the breathing air. Hence, snoring needs to be thought of as a timely indicator of some sort, which might be a precursor to some serious health issue.
 
Usually, the treatments for snoring are limited to customizing and using dental or oral appliances. Oral Appliance Therapy is suggested as the easiest and the most suitable corrective measure for snoring. But in certain cases, where snoring happens due to defect by birth with the facial skeletal system or due to some accident that has changed the course of the face, surgical methods also may be suggested.

The Healthy Sleep – Advanced Center for Snoring, Sleep Apnea and Migraine Therapy. We are the first and front runner in providing Oral appliance for Snoring and Sleep Apnea at the affordable cost.

Does Snoring Wakes You All Night ?

Oral Appliance Therapy is recommended for patients who are diagnosed with sleep disorders like Snoring, Sleep Apnoea etc,

Just as all other oral related topics, even Oral Appliance Therapy can be prescribed by your dentist, who is trained in Sleep Medicine. A custom fitted oral device particular to your needs is can be used to resolve all sleep disorders.

There are several over-the-counter options available, but not recommended. Over-the-counter devices are usually appealing because they are cheap. However, since the quality is compromised, the situation could further worsen and create complications for the patient.


http://www.thehealthysleep.in/best-oral-appliances/


The most common oral device used for therapy is the Anti-snoring Device. This device is easily available on websites and pharmacies. Many patients just buy it and use it without proper prescription; as a result they rarely see any improvement in their conditions. What people do not realise is that the usage of these devices should be supported with proper medical solutions. Only a dentist, who is trained in Sleep medicine, can explain a detailed usage of the oral device followed by certain restrictions and lifestyle changes. Only, he is capable of doing so because he has observed and analysed your particular situation.

Many patients are unaware of the fact that, the oral devices can be customised as per the condition of the patients. Hence, it can be very comfortable for the patients to use it on a daily basis. Snoring and Mild Sleep Apnoea can now be successfully treated with the usage of these new age Dental Sleep Appliances.

Dr. Krishnan A. Subramanian is the director of  The Healthy Sleep, an Advanced Centre for Snoring, Sleep Apnoea, and Migraine Therapy. Over the years, Dr. Krishnan A. Subramanian has successfully cured several paediatric sleep disordered breathing cases.
