Sleep apnea is the most common sleep disorder. Approximately 27% of all adults in America have some level (mild to severe) of sleep apnea, which robs the body of quality restorative sleep. Your sleep system can contribute to relief from sleep disorder symptoms. The Mattress Store in Santa Fe can help you find the right products to improve breathing and sleep quality.
Understanding Sleep Apnea
Sleep apnea is a condition in which breathing stops intermittently during sleep. The frequency and duration of breathing cessation vary by individual. However, sleep position and body type are significant factors. Back sleepers and overweight/obese individuals typically have much more severe apnea because gravity and excess tissue obstruct airways.
How Your Sleep System Can Affect Sleep Apnea
There is no cure for sleep apnea. However, the condition can be managed and sleep quality improved by keeping airways open. Continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) masks are one of the preferred treatments. However, some people simply cannot get used to sleeping with a mask on. For people with mild sleep apnea and those who cannot tolerate CPAP, your sleep system can provide relief.
An adjustable base that allows you to elevate your head and neck helps keeps airways open no matter what sleep position you are in. Open airways allow for normal respiration, thereby contributing to better sleep quality—the sleep quality needed for optimal health.
