Murder after midnight: beware the Apnea in South East London

12 / 02 / 2013

When you are awake, you are conscious of what you are generally doing and can make informed choices about how you go about your day in south east London. But when you sleep, you are at the mercy of your body’s automated system to get you through the night. If you are healthy, your heart, brain and lungs will work in beautiful unison to keep you ticking over until you wake. If however you are obese, have had some nerve damage to your spine or something is blocking your airways, then you are in danger from being killed off from sleep apnea during the night in south east London. Your brain sends signals to your lungs to take in air to stock up the bloodstream with oxygen. Then, the heart pumps the blood through the body and back into the brain. Block the airways or the signals being sent to the lungs, they lungs will stall and cause the heart to falter and the brain will begin to panic. It can cause breathing to stop for up to 30 seconds at the time and hence your body system will be put under tremendous stress as the heart struggles to operate normally: over time, it won’t bother and give up altogether. This will also spill over to how you breathe during the day. Symptoms are hard to spot as well: Fatigue during the day mixed with a bad temper, as well as bad snoring indicate problems but only by having sleep therapy can you analyse the level of the problem.
