Stress-induced sleep

Stressed-Out Worms Hit the Snooze Button

When you catch a nasty cold, curling up in bed to sleep may be the only activity you can manage. Sleeping in response to stress isn’t a uniquely human behavior: many other animals have the same reaction, and it’s not clear why. While the circadian sleep that follows the pattern of the clock has been studied extensively, sleep that’s triggered by stress is far less understood.

Taking a Look at Insomnia, From A to Z’s

An estimated 35 percent of this country’s 250 million adults experience occasional problems sleeping while roughly 20 percent have short-term or acute insomnia and approximately 10 percent have long-term or chronic insomnia. The reasons behind this widespread sleeplessness are numerous, but so are ways to address the problem.

Snoring Sounds Provide Insight for Obstructive Airway Disorders

Often unnoticed by the patient, Obstructive Sleep Apnea results in fragmented sleep patterns causing daytime fatigue and cardiovascular problems. However, the question remains of how to differentiate normal snoring from sleep apnea. Researchers will present their results on the 3-D modeling of uvula vibrational patterns and sound frequencies during snoring at the 70th meeting of the Division of Fluid Dynamics, Nov. 19-21, 2017.

Like a Baby: The Vicious Cycle of Childhood Obesity and Snoring

Poor nutrition and lack of exercise lead to the increasing prevalence of obesity which, in turn, is the major predictor of diabetes and future risk of cardiovascular disease in western societies. Excess weight is also closely associated with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), the increasingly common and potentially serious sleep disorder that is often marked by loud snoring. OSA affects about 5 to 10 percent of children 8 to 11 years old. While evidence suggests that OSA appears to exacerbate obesity and its comorbidities such as diabetes and cardiovascular disease, its effects on children have not yet been studied in detail.

Getting Enough Sleep May Help Skin Wounds Heal Faster

Getting more sleep may help wound healing, and a nutrition supplement may also help, according to a new study. The paper, published ahead of print in the Journal of Applied Physiology, was chosen as an APSselect article for November.
