(Best Syndication News) - The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) expressed concern for consumers who take certain medications containing zolpidem to treat insomnia. The medication could cause the user to be less capable at completing activities that require full attention, such as driving a vehicle.

Because of this concern, the FDA has notified the manufacturers of the sleep drugs containing zolpidem to lower the recommended dose. Zolpidem is marketed as a generic or under the brand names of Ambien (oral tablet), Edluar (tablet placed under the tongue), and Zolpimist (oral spray). Additionally, the FDA is currently trying to determine the risk of next-morning impairment in other sleep drugs and OTC products.

(Best Syndication News) Panic attacks can come on suddenly and peak usually within ten minutes – but can last even longer. The Mayo Clinic reports that these attacks could be triggered by something that is not dangerous but can be frightening and cause the sufferer to think they are losing control or even having a heart attack.

Most people may suffer two panic attacks in their lifetime, but frequent attacks can affect the quality of life. Small stressful situations could cause recurrent and unexpected attacks.

The panic attacks can release a sudden wave of adrenalin. This can increase heart rate.

(Best Syndication News) - A study found that people over 65 who start taking benzodiazepine are at a 50 percent increased risk for developing dementia within 15 years compared to people who never took the anxiety and insomnia medication. The study was published in bmj.com today.

Benzodiazepine is prescribed to people over 65 in France at a rate of 30 percent, in Canada at 20 percent, and in Spain at 15 percent. In the UK and US it is prescribed less often, however, many patients have continued to take the medication for years even though the prescribing guidelines suggests to limit the medication. Other studies have found increased risk for dementia, while other study results did not see the risk.

Sleep Apnea rate in 20-Year-old Women was seen 50 percent of the time

Thu, 16 Aug 2012 04:46:24 +0000

(image)

(Best Syndication News) - A study from Sweden found that women have a high rate of obstructive sleep apnea. They found 50 percent of the 20-year-old participants had obstructive sleep apnea. The women who were obese or had hypertension had a higher rate of sleep apnea. The results were published online today in the European Respiratory Journal.

The condition occurs when a person sleeps and their airway becomes blocked preventing regular breathing. The severity of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) can be determined by the number of pauses.

OSA is usually associated with men, but this new research sheds light on OSA in women. This study suggests that it should be identified as a problem for females too.

Sleeping Pills and Obesity Combined Increases Risk for Death

Sun, 18 Mar 2012 07:04:02 +0000

(Best Syndication News) Obesity and the use of sleeping pills can increase the risk of death, according to a research presented at an American Heart Association session in San Diego.

Obese patients who take sleeping pills are more vulnerable than non-obese patients taking the same sleeping pills. Daniel Kripke, M.D., a psychiatrist with Scripps Clinic's Viterbi Family Sleep Center in San Diego, said the increased risk could be due to sleep apnea.

Obese people suffer from a higher rate of sleep apnea because soft fatty tissue can block the airway when they sleep. Many sleep apnea patients are told to avoid alcohol and muscle relaxants. Men are more prone to obstructive sleep apnea (OSA).

CPAP Treatment for Sleep Apnea might deflect Heart Failure

Thu, 15 Mar 2012 04:29:30 +0000

(image)

(Best Syndication News) - UK researchers found that six months of using continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) treatment for moderate to severe sleep apnea (OSA) patients could improve their heart function. The use of the CPAP equipment to treat sleep apnea may help to protect against heart failure. The study was published in Circulation: Heart Failure, a journal from the American Heart Association.

The UK researchers found that moderate to severe OSA patients had changes to their heart’s shape and function. The researchers equated the changes to being similar to the results of chronic hypertension. Other changes noticed with the OSA patients were thickening of the heart wall and a reduction in the ability for the heart to pump.

(Best Syndication News) Researchers from Virginia Tech University say that the annual shift to daylight savings time makes employees tired, resulting in more time spent surfing the web during their workday.

On average, Americans lose 40 minutes of sleep Sunday night making it more difficult to “self-regulate” their behavior. D. Lance Ferris, assistant professor of management and organization in Penn State's Smeal College of Business, and his colleagues David T. Wagner, Singapore Management University; Christopher M. Barnes, Virginia Tech University, say this leads to more entertainment-related searches.

(Best Syndication News) - A six-year study of over 11,000 children found that young children who have obstructed breathing while sleeping increased their risk of having behavior problems. The children were reported to have suffered more hyperactivity, aggressiveness, emotional symptoms, and trouble getting along with peers.

Researchers from the Albert Einstein College of Medicine of Yeshiva University published their findings in today’s online edition of the journal Pediatrics.

Sleep-disordered breathing (SDB) includes symptoms of snoring, breathing through the mouth, and sleep apnea. According to the American Academy of Otolaryngology – Health and Neck Surgery (AAO-HNS) estimate that 1 in 10 children snore on a regular basis. Around 2 to 4 percent of children have sleep apnea. Children that have SDB often have enlarged tonsils or adenoids.

Obstructive Sleep Apnea reduce Blood Supply to the Heart – CPAP Treatment improved Blood Vessel Function

Tue, 12 Jul 2011 21:26:58 +0000

(image)

(Best Syndication News) - Researchers from the UK found that using Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) equipment to treat obstructive sleep apnea helped improve blood vessel function. Sleep Apnea untreated had shown a reduced blood supply being delivered to the heart. The sleep apnea and blood function study results will be published in the Hypertension: Journal of the American Heart Association.

After 26 weeks of using CPAP equipment to treat obstructive sleep apnea, the study found improved blood supply function in the participants that were diagnosed with obstructive sleep apnea. CPAP equipment is constant air flow that delivered usually by a mask covering the nasal passages. This continuous airflow helps keep the airway passages open while the person with apnea sleeps at night.

CPAP treatment for Obstructive Sleep Apnea helps to prevent daytime sleepiness

Sun, 15 May 2011 21:02:33 +0000

(image)

(Best Syndication News) - Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) patients reported less daytime sleepiness when using Continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) equipment, according to a European study. The results were beneficial for those with minimal OSA reporting less daytime sleepiness after six months using CPAP equipment. The study results were presented today at the ATS 2011 International Conference in Denver.

CPAP is medical equipment that provides a constant flow of air to help keep the airway passages open while a person sleeps. In untreated obstructive sleep apnea, the airway passage becomes blocked when sleeping. Snoring is often a symptom that a person could have OSA. In order to be diagonosed with OSA, often a person goes to a sleep study lab to have their breathing measured to see how often they stop breathing during the night.

Obesity - Staying up late and sleeping in late packs on the pounds

Thu, 05 May 2011 19:54:10 +0000

(image)

(Best Syndication News) - A study from researchers at Northwestern Medicine, found that late nighters tend to have bad eating habits and tended to have a higher Body Mass Index (BMI). The researchers found that those who stayed up late and then slept in late in the morning ate less fruit and vegetables, tended to eat more fast food, and drink more sugared sodas. The late night group ate on average 248 more calories each day than the people that slept during normal hours. This study is currently in the published online edition of the journal Obesity.

Co-lead author Kelly Glazer Baron, a health psychologist and a neurology instructor at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine warns that these eating habits that late night people have could possibly cause a two-pound per-month weight gain. The person would have to do more exercise to accommodate the extra calorie intake to avoid the weight gain.
