    The patient should have spontaneous breathing, but the breathing frequency should be adjustable by the device. The BPAP ST should be tried in cases where BPAP does not enter the respiratory tract, treatment is required at higher pressure, and especially in the presence of central apneas. In patients with obstructive sleep apnea syndrome as well as pathologies leading to alveolar hypoventilation such as restrictive pulmonary disease, COPD, obesity-hypoventilation syndrome, sleep-related hypoventilation / hypoxemic syndrome, it may be advisable to use spontaneous respiration and determination that the triggering power is insufficient.


    Home Sleep Test

    Polysomnography; It is the name of the patient who is used in the diagnosis of sleep disorders such as snoring, sleep apnea, periodic leg movements during sleep and night sleep, by measuring the brain waves, eye movements, respiratory activities, oxygen percentage in the blood and muscle activity for at least 6-8 hours.


    Home Sleep Test

    The sleep test is used to assess sleep apnea findings and to diagnose sleep disorders. Sleep apnea is a sleep disorder characterized by a period of time during which the breathing stops for a while and continues again. Symptoms of sleep apnea;

    • Daytime sleepiness
    • Voice and continuous snoring
    • Breathing periods during breathing and breathing hunger
    • Resting sleep

    The sleep test is also used to diagnose other sleep disorders.

    • Narcolepsy (daytime, deep sleep attacks)
    • Fainting with sleep (seizure)
    • Restless Legs Syndrome
    • Chronic insomnia (difficulty falling asleep)
    • REM sleep behavior disorders (sleepwalker)

    The national heart, lung and blood institute warns that untreated sleep disorders increase the risk of heart attack, high blood pressure and stroke.



    What is Sleep Apnea?

    Sleep apnea is one of the most important diseases caused by snoring and can be expressed as a sleep breathing sleep. The sleep apnea, which means that the breathing stops and becomes superficial during sleep, can be repeated many times during the night. During the sleep apnea, relaxation occurs in the muscles that allow the upper respiratory tract to remain open. It is called sleep apnea for at least 10 seconds of breathing as a result of airway obstruction of tongue root or soft wrist or overgrown tonsils.

    During the sleep apnea, the breathing effort continues, but after a while more and more this effort stimulates the brain and airway opens. The person who snores until the breath stops stops breathing again and again with a loud groan.

     When necessary precautions are not taken, it is known that the sleep apnea increases the risk of traffic accidents 7-8 times by causing carelessness and causes job accidents. Although the incidence of sleep apnea is 1-4%, it can be better understood how serious a problem is if it is thought that 3% of diabetes mellitus and about 5% of asthma frequency.


    Causes of Sleep Apnea

    The reason for the sleep apnea is that the muscles in the throat are loosened to cover the area where the air will pass. Strictures in the upper respiratory tract can cause respiratory tract wear out from childhood, which can lead to sleep apnea syndrome. Being overweight, having large tonsils and nose can also be among the causes of sleep apnea. The sleep apnea can be seen not only in adults but also in children.

    Snoring in a person with sleep apnea syndrome occurs 3-4 times more, very rough and noisy. In addition to snoring, breathlessness, frequent sighing, flapping with arm movements, frequent and prolonged respiratory durations, waking up in the morning are also seen in people with sleep apnea syndrome. Hypertension is seen in 30-50% of patients with sleep apnea syndrome, although it is not exactly the cause of sleep apnea.


    Sleep Apnea Symptoms

    The most important symptom of sleep apnea is breathlessness in sleep. Other sleep apnea indications can be listed as follows:

    Restlessness during sleep
    Do not get up often
    Oral establishment
    Respiratory durations as a manifestation
    In addition, headache, forgetfulness, impairment of concentration, depression, morning wakefulness and sleeping at an extreme level of sleepiness and fatigue state of the sleep apnea can be observed during the day.

     People with signs of sleep apnea can experience many serious symptoms during the day. Sudden death, stroke, heart attack and heart failure in sleep, difficulty in weight loss if the patient is obese, respiratory failure in pulmonary patients, sexual desire and impotence, and uncontrolled diabetes can be cited as examples. Besides, the sleep apnea can cause traffic and job accidents because it causes continuous lack of fatigue and concentration during daytime.


    Sleep Apnea Test

    Sleep apnea test is the most important step in the process of diagnosis and treatment of the disease. A sleep apnea test called "polysomnography" is a test that records brain activity and respiratory events throughout the night.

      Polysomnography, a sleep apnea test, is based on the measurement of brain waves during sleep, eye movements, airflow in the mouth and mouth, snoring, heart rate, leg movements and oxygen levels. Patients need to stay in a sleeping room overnight in order to be able to do the sleep apnea test. During the test, the signals received by the cables connected to the various points of the body are transferred to the computer outside the room. By examining these records taken until the Sabah, many parameters such as how many times breathing stops during sleep, how long it stops, how long it takes to stop breathing, how oxygen values and heart rate are affected, and whether or not the patient suffers deep sleep.


    How to Prevent Sleep Apnea

    The sleep apnea can be prevented by simple things to take. The most important of the interchangeable risk factors for the disease is obesity. Sleep apnea can be reduced by 50%. In addition, avoiding alcohol and sleeping pills, quitting smoking and not lying on the back also reduce the inconvenience. Sprays or elastic bands that reduce snoring and provide nasal opening are not sufficient for the treatment of sleep apnea.


    Sleep Apnea Treatment

    Obesity, which should be done first in the treatment of sleep apnea, is to be overcome. If there are significant anatomic strictures in the upper respiratory tract, the patient should be evaluated for surgical intervention by an Ear Nose Throat specialist.

     Progressive airway pressure (CPAP) therapy should be used in the treatment of sleep apnea. Depending on the treatment effect and the patient's preference, the patient should be followed up either by making adjustments in automatic settings or by switching to a constant pressure device. In case of difficulty in using CPAP device or in case of mild cases, it can be prevented to block the upper respiratory tract by falling back to the lower jaw with the appliance in the mouth.

     The specific treatment of sleep apnea is provided by the use of devices that deliver compressed air to keep the airway open continuously. PAP (positive airway pressure) devices prevent sleep apnea by allowing upper airways to remain open during sleep. These devices, which give compressed air through a silicon mask that sits firmly on the face during the night, may initially seem annoying to the patient. However, patients who wake up in the morning and have wakefulness easily accept the device. A second night must be spent in the sleep laboratory to determine which device is appropriate for the patient and to see if apneas are missing or have been reduced to a minimum number. After sleep apnea therapy, the survivors of sleep apnea survivors rise again.


    What to know about respiratory devices

    Cpap and BiPAP are respiratory devices used in patients with respiratory problems.

    BIPAP (Bilevel positive airway pressure)

    Continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP)

    These two devices are used for external breathing assistance. Respiratory devices can be used not only for ALS, but also for many respiratory problems such as chronic lung disease, sleep apnea. Here, the target is to provide mechanical respiratory support for patients who can not get enough oxygen due to respiration. For ALS patients, a respiratory device, usually of the BIPAP type, is used. This is caused by the fact that these patients lose their ability to breathe spontaneously, especially in the night. The BIPAP breathing apparatus automatically switches on in this case, providing the patient with breathing needs. By responding to the respiratory reflex, they help the patient. These features are referred to as BIPAP S / T devices. They have an automatic respiratory system.

    Artificial respiration ie mechanical ventilation can be done in 2 ways;

    Non-invasive ie masked

    Invasive, that is, breathing is made with a larynx attached to the tube. This is done by opening a hole in the patient's throat with a small surgical procedure.

    A specialist doctor can decide which method will be applied to the patients. If there is a delegation report, respiratory devices may be covered by the social security institution. However, after the treatment, the devices must be returned to the institution.


    Respiratory Disorders in Sleep

    The most common symptom in this group of diseases is Sleep Respiratory Disease (Obstructive Sleep Apnea Syndrome). The most common symptom is snoring. Snoring occurs during sleep with noisy breathing. This is due to the narrowing of the throat during sleep, which disturbs those who share the same bed with the person who snores according to their degree of discomfort, those who stay in the same house, even the neighbors. Excessive weight, alcohol intake, fatigue and insomnia also increase snoring, except for the causes of narrowness in the throat such as tonsils, small tongue and palate. Although it does not cause any problem for the person who snores, the partner who hears the snoring frequently and can not sleep comfortably for this reason comes in front of the family doctor, friend's warning doctor. Research has shown that snoring increases with age, middle age and nearly half of the population snore. When the narrowing of the throat, which plays a role in the snore, becomes more apparent, it leads to the complete closure of the airway, the cutting of the breath (apnea). It is called obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (sleep obstructive sleep apnea syndrome), which is frequently repeated during sleep, when breathing between noisy snoring, and therefore snoring, lasts for a long time (over 10 seconds) and then continues again with breathing and noisy snoring.


    Sleep Respiratory Remission

    Sleep Respiratory Disease (Obstructive Sleep Apnea Syndrome)

    Recurrent respiratory disorders (apnea, apnea, hypopnea: hypopnea) develop as a result of obstruction of the throat during sleep.
    It causes sleep interruption due to the complete interruption of breathing or a considerable decrease in sleep during sleep, and causes a decrease in the proportion of oxygen in the body. Breathing ends with waking, breathing starts again. When alertness occurs in the nervous system, the effect of the relevant nervous system on the heart and vessels causes the blood pressure to rise. Degradation of sleep affects metabolism and sexual functions. Obstructive sleep apnea syndrome is therefore an important health problem that affects many body systems.
    Patients often disgrace in a noisy way, have not received their morning sleep, wake up unrestrained. With the cause of insomnia, disturbances in mental ability and sleepiness during the day can develop.
    Excessive weight, causes in the throat tightness, alcohol intake in the evening, some drugs aggravate respiratory arrest in sleep. The use of non-prescription medicines can be detrimental to the use of medicines related to sleep without knowing the underlying problem.
    Obstructive sleep apnea syndrome is diagnosed in the sleep laboratory for sleep and respiratory changes. It is also necessary to work in sleep laboratories to regulate treatment in patients who will undergo pressure therapy
    The prospect of community health can be summarized in three main sections:

    Sleep disordered breathing is a common condition in the community: The most common cause of excessive sleepiness is known as sleep apnea syndrome (obstructive sleep apnea syndrome). It has been shown in studies that obstructive sleep apnea syndrome is present in 4% of men and 2% of women in adulthood. Up to 3% of cases have been reported in studies conducted in children. However, very few of the patients are diagnosed. It is estimated that only 1/10 of the patients can be diagnosed in USA where sleep laboratories are common.
    Obstructive sleep apnea syndrome leads to major health problems (illness and death). Clinical consequences such as sleep disturbance, decreased oxygen, increased hypertension in patients with sympathetic nervous system hypertension, respiratory and cardiac insufficiency, stroke, impaired cardiac rhythm, and overweight (obesity) may develop. Insomnia can lead to accidents in people who use vehicles that require careful attention. Patients' compliance with their surroundings may deteriorate, job performance and quality of life may decrease. Studies have shown that the life expectancy of patients with obstructive sleep apnea hypopnea syndrome is reduced compared to the non-ill persons due to the mentioned disease outcomes and the expectation of life expectancy by treatment can be increased. Increased cardiovascular disease in these patients may result in fatal outcomes. This suggests the importance of obstructive sleep apnea syndrome in terms of community health.
    Obstructive sleep apnea syndrome is a treatable disease. In obstructive sleep apnea syndrome, efficacy has been shown for today, it is a pressure therapy applied through mask in the form of treatment. The purpose of the treatment is to keep the upper airway, which has increased tendency to close during sleep, by giving positive pressure from the outside. Surgical treatment may be appropriate for patients with moderate disease who are not overweight and have anatomic stenosis in the upper airway. The other treatment that can be selected in these patients is oral devices (oral appliance). It can be said that treatment can reduce or eliminate the negative consequences of obstructive sleep apnea syndrome.
    In summary, obstructive sleep apnea is an important public health problem threatening the quality and duration of the hypopnea syndrome. It needs to be recognized and treated appropriately in terms of patient and community health. Diagnosis and treatment are possible when referring to health centers, sleep laboratories related to the subject.


    Sleep-related Respiratory Disorder

    People with sleep apnea stop breathing during sleep. This can wake up dozens or even hundreds of times during the night. The duration of breathing may be as short as 10 seconds. Most patients do not remember waking up. A sleep test is needed to diagnose sleep apnea. Sleep-related breathing problems are most commonly seen in men, in overweight people, and in older adults. People with sleep apnea often benefit from treatment called positive airway pressure. This treatment keeps the airway open by providing air pressure through a mask attached to the nose during sleep.


    Types of Sleep Apnea

    There are three main types of sleep apnea:

    Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA)
    Central Sleep Apnea (CSA)
    Mixed sleep apnea

    Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA)
    Obstructive Sleep Apnea is the most common type of sleep apnea. The diagnosis of sleep apnea is 84%.
    Obstructive sleep apnea; It is in the upper respiratory tract and is caused by a blockage in the nose and throat that stops air flow to the lungs.

    Why the upper respiratory tract may be blocked:

    During sleep, the muscles relax and the airway stops and the airway stops.
    Airway constriction thickness around neck.
    Inflammatory tonsils or other transient causes.
    Structural causes such as nose, neck, or chin.

    Central Sleep Apnea (CSA)

    Rare Central Sleep Apnea (CSA) may arise from some medications used in pain treatment such as opioids, heart failure, severe injuries and operations. And also;

    Viral brain infection
    It may occur in chronic respiratory disorders.
    Although Central Respiratory Apnea is open in the Central Sleep Apnea, as a result of the absence of breathing effort, it is the breathing of the lungs that can not reach the air.
    Central Sleep Apnea is usually confused with snoring and it is therefore difficult to notice.

    Investigations 4 Patients with Central Sleep Apnea were found to have heart failure.

    CSA is also associated with Cheyne-Stokes Respiratory (CSR), which occurs in heart failure.

    CSR is a cycle of breathing, deep, sometimes rapid breathing.

    Central Sleep Apnea and Cheyne-Stokes heart failure are 30-50% undetermined and are known as CSA-CSR.

    Mixed Sleep Apnea
    This mixture of CSA and OSA is an obtuse.
    Your doctor can help you further if needed.

    If you are worried about your sleep apnea, consult your doctor.

    Opioid = Chemical substances that act like morphine in the body. Its main use is analgesia. These agents act by binding to opioid receptors in the central nervous system and the gastrointestinal tract.


    Key facts about snoring

    If you are snoring - especially if you snore with a loud voice - you know how destructive it can be. You are disturbing your neighbors when you sleep on airplanes or theaters. Your bed partner complains that they can not sleep and take you to a spare room or a sofa. In fact, 95% of the snoopers say that their snoring disturbs their partner.

    And whether you know it or not, it causes damage to your sleep. Snoring means you can not get the amount of oxygen you need for a healthy night's sleep. And you know what happens when you are not feeling well: You are tired, you are a list, you are even grumpy.

    Noisy, disturbing snoring can also have other less pronounced side effects. The snoring is 1.6 times more to develop high blood pressure within 4 years to snore at the beginning. Other cardiovascular diseases also have risks.

    So if you suspect that you are snoring or snoring, consider it as a sign that something may not be right. Join our short sleep apnea test or contact us to find a sleep test facility near you.

    Remember: Snoring can not be treated, but can be controlled. An oral device like Elifce Medikal ResMed successfully stops snoring at about 8 loudspeakers out of 10 using it.
