    Who Contracts Sleep Apnea?

    Morbidly obese people usually suffer from this problem, which is why they have to wear oxygen masks to bed. In the obese, sleep apnea is caused by the pressure of their own weight on their lungs. Obese people also snore a lot and gasp for breath. Usually, middle-aged men who are morbidly obese are at a greater risk of contracting sleep apnea. A woman’s physiology protects her from contracting this disorder.

    Obstructive sleep apnea has an adverse effect on the patient’s heart because deprivation from oxygen prevents proper circulation. This disorder is, therefore, associated with congenital and congestive heart failure, which is again found in morbidly obese people. Sleep apnea is more in coronary cases that have been left neglected and untreated for such a long time that now they are no longer considered to be treatable.

    People with congenital Down’s syndrome stand a greater risk of contracting sleep apnea because about half the patients of Down’s syndrome have large heads, tonsils, tongue, and adenoids as well as a narrow nasopharynx.

    People who have undergone pharyngeal flap surgery also suffer from sleep apnea because the surgery gives rise to an obstruction in breathing, which can cause death if it is not monitored by an efficient doctor. Sleep apnea can be treated in a number of ways. Usually, doctors and ENT specialists consider the following points while drawing up treatment plans for people suffering from sleep apnea.


    Minor symptoms of sleep apnea include irritability, concentration problems, frequent urination, rise in heart rate, depression, esophageal reflux, headaches, moodiness, Noctoria (a condition which forces a patient to visit the bathroom for urination at night), lowered libido, and profuse sweating in the night.
