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.

How Your Lack of Sleep can Help Tumors Thrive
I'm Monique Evans with today's health news.Getting a good night's sleep could be a lifesaver for those with cancer. According to a newstudy, sleep apnea could contribute to the growth of blood vessels inside tumors. Sleepapnea is a condition marked by shallow breaths or pauses in breathing during sleep. One consequenceof sleep apnea is hypoxia. Hypoxia is when the organs and tissues are receiving insufficientoxygen. This hypoxia could be contributing to the growth of blood vessels inside tumors. Vilaseca and team, who used mice for this study, found that with decreased oxygen, amechanism called vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) activated to help tumors thrive.During this study, 12 mice with kidney tumors
were subjected to hypoxia, and as a result,they exhibited increases in cells that play a role in building blood vessels. This studymight explain why healthy habits that increase oxygen in the blood result in better outcomesfor cancer patients. For dailyRx, I'm Monique Evans.
