Snoring Obstructive Sleep Apnea and Treatment Animation
Snoring and sleep apnea.In normal breathing, air enters the nostrils and goes through the throat and the tracheato the lungs. In people who snore this airway is partiallyobstructed by excess tissue of the throat, such as large tonsils, large soft palate ortongue. Another common cause of obstruction is the dropping of the tongue into the throatdue to over relaxation of tongue muscles during sleep. Air currents competing throughnarrow spaces in the throat cause the soft palate essentially a piece of soft tissuehanging in the throat to vibrate. This vibration is the source of the noise we hear when someoneis snoring.
Sleep apnea happens when the airway is completelyobstructed, no air can go through and the person stops breathing. This cessation ofbreathing triggers the brain to respond by waking up the person just enough to take abreath. This repeats itself again and again during the course of the night and may resultin sleep deprivation. Snoring and mild sleep apnea may be treatedwith a mandibular advancement device. This device is designed to move the lower jaw andthe tongue slightly forward and thus making the space in the back of the throat larger.
Sleep in and win
This season with the Perth Linx we'vebeen basically assessing the sleep quantity and quality for the athletesand use that information to make differences or changes throughout theseason in terms of training times travel and scheduling to optimize recovery andperformance for the Perth Linx. So really I study kicked off first dayby ascertaining these sleep pattens of the athletes will be used wristwornactigraphy over a period of three to four weeks we also administered a number ofquestionnaires to assess the prevalence
of potential sleep disorders with theathletes. the results in issue were quite positive we found that the Perth Linx athletesslept quite well and we're doing a lot of things really good in terms of time youwent to bed and time to get up and in preparation for training I struggled a lot with just getting tosleep after a game on the road particularly when we had a game the nextday that was probably my biggest struggle so I found it really beneficialto kind of look at the data for the
sleep patterns and routines that I hadand try and create a routine that sort of was the best at cultivating a goodnight's sleep after a game I mean I don't know if I played betterbut I certainly felt better and I think mentally that for me was reallyimportant i think the lessons transfer straight into the public number one wesee the electronic devices do disturb and disrupt overnight sleep not just athletes but also in people ingeneral public so remove electronic devices in a time prior to sleep willreally help and also ensuring that the
room is comfortable and eliminatingstimulating and and activities prior to sleep I think routine is vital. Manyadults have there are kids in a routine of going to bait to have this prebed routine of maybe bath time and relaxation and and you know quiet timebefore bed as adults we really don't focus on thatwe do lots of work watch TV maybe have a drink jump straight intobed and try to initiate sleep straight away So the same things we do with akid we should translate those through
to adults as well i think a lot of peopleyou know subscribe to the philosophy of rise andgrind get up early in the morning train really hard to think about the morehours you put in the better but really what you want to do is try to optimizethis recovery for performance so my motto at the moment is to sleepin and win.

When I first came in, I was just kind of nervous,but then, right when I walked into the place, they were so nice. Johnson and Edwards' officetotally is very professional. Everyone that I've worked with in their office has beentotally professional, and I respect that highly. As a mother, you tend to be very protective,but I just felt totally at ease because from the moment you walk in the door here, thestaff greets you and they're very friendly, and they just treat you like family. So Iwas very comfortable with him; as a person and as a dentist, he just was very professionaland very knowledgeable and just seemed like a veteran in his field. He explained the entireprocedure and showed me a tutorial that really
helped me to understand what I was going tobe going through ultimately. Johnson is a very caring , very knowledgeable,professional. Very up to date on everything, very friendly, very good manners. I don'tknow that a could have done anything any better than the way Ben did. Edwardsis very personable and he makes you feel very comfortable. I just right away felt like Iwas in good hands, and everything went well. Pacific Northwest is a fantastic place. Idon't think that this experience of getting a wisdom tooth taken out would have been aseasy if it weren't for them.
