Obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA) is common. It is a disorder which mostly affects overweight middle-aged men. Sufferers are often witnessed to snore heavily before stopping breathing for many seconds. The abdomen may see-saw with the chest as the air cannot move in and out of the lungs.
Snoring may be loud and spouses will benefit from a good pair of ear plugs such as those from ZenPlugs.
Daytime sleepiness may be a serious problem. Sufferers often fall asleep at inopportune times like in meetings or whilst driving. This may lead to irritability, snappiness, depression and anxiety. The risk of stroke and heart attack is also much higher. This is probably because blood pressure rises during episodes. As well as this, the risk factors for sleep apnoea and these complications overlap.
Ear plugs can help bed-fellows get some sleep. Molded ear plugs are more effective than other types. ZenPlugs last for years and don't protrude from the ears so are comfortable when lying on your side. They are also antibacterial so help prevent ear infections. Otherwise these can occur with prolonged or repeated ear plug usage.
