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.

An Insomnia Label More Harmful Than Poor Sleep

People who worry about poor sleep have more emotional and physical problems during the day than those who do not worry, regardless of how well either sleep, according to research conducted at The University of Alabama.

Blame Tired Brain Cells for Mental Lapses After Poor Sleep

A UCLA study is the first to reveal how sleep deprivation disrupts brain cells’ ability to communicate with each other, leading to temporary mental lapses that affect memory and visual perception.

Insomnia Linked with Early Death and Kidney Dysfunction

• Insomnia was linked with increased risks of early death, rapid kidney function decline, and kidney failure in a group of US veterans. • Results from the study will be presented at ASN Kidney Week 2017 October 31–November 5 at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center in New Orleans, LA.
