A 'Good Night' Sleep!

After a long tiring day everyone want is a good and sound sleep. To take rest and get ready for another day. Many people are lucky to get a sound and fulfilling sleep.
Few are not that lucky, but some are really unfortunate in this matter. They suffer from a breathing disorder called Sleep Apnea -- A potentially serious sleep disorder in which breathing repeatedly stops and starts. The person can't sleep properly at night and as a result he feels tired, sleepy, depressed at day time. Sometimes the person is so sleep deprived that his brain shuts automatically for rest. It can cause serious accidents. It can be really dangerous.

There is a test that confirms Sleep Apnea. A CPAP Machine that helps proper breathing at night so that the person suffering can get a "good night" sleep. After getting some sleep the patient feels better. But he or she will have to use the CPAP machine with mask always to get proper sleep and rest.

Sleep apnea is a condition that causes brief, repeated pauses in breathing throughout the night. In addition to affecting your slumber, sleep apnea can threaten your heart health. Sleep apnea is a risk factor for high blood pressure, which raises the risk of both heart attacks and strokes. Sleep apnea also is more common in people who are obese.
