Sleep Apnea Pillow - Relief from Snoring
Specially designed pillows for sleep apnea may be the difference between life and death. Anyone with sleep apnea realizes how important it is to sleep not only comfortably but also safely. Every year, approximately 38,000 men and women die from sleep apnea related problems. While sleep apnea is more common in men, anyone can develop this dangerous problem.
About Sleep Apnea
People with sleep apnea repeatedly stop breathing during the night for anywhere from a few seconds to a couple minutes. There are three main forms:
- Central Sleep
In Obstructive Sleep Apnea tissue in the rear of the throat closes during heavy sleep obstructing air intake. With Central Sleep, the brain relaxes so much that it fails to send messages to the lung and throat muscles prompting them to keep breathing. Mixed is a combination of both the obstruction and failed brain messages.
If you think you might have sleep apnea, you should see your doctor. In many cases, pillows for sleep apnea will help open airways and give you a better night's sleep.
