Sleep apnea syndrome key, symptoms and treatment

Nasal congestion is a common problem. It is more common in middle-aged men and women. It is not a matter of concern for the healthy people to sniff a little. However, snoring loudly which can be heard from the next room even with the door closed, is uncomfortable at all ages.

It is not uncommon for children to have runny noses, which are usually caused by various diseases. Severe sleep apnea or shortness of breath is called snoring and sleep apnea syndrome.

In most cases, this is due to obstruction of the airways, which is called obstructive sleep apnea.

Sleep apnea syndrome key, symptoms and treatment

Sleep apnea syndrome can occur anywhere from the nostrils to the lungs. Usually the nose, palate or mouth is the origin of nasal congestion. If there is obstruction due to any disease or inflammation in this place, nasal congestion occurs. Curved nasal bones, inflammation of the sinuses, and the accumulation of excess fat in the throat in obese people are the main causes of runny nose. This is usually the case in children with enlarged adenoid glands or frequent infections or enlarged tonsils for any reason, or both.


The main symptoms of nasal congestion are gradual deterioration of intelligence, inattention, inability to concentrate, personality changes, headaches, morning headaches, frequent urination in children, etc.

Most of these patients usually seek medical help during the day due to drowsiness or drowsiness. Experience has shown that relatives of the patient bring the patient to the doctor due to nasal congestion or suffocation.

Which occurs while asleep

The patient usually falls asleep at bedtime. The patient starts snoring as soon as he falls asleep and the snoring sounds become more and more intense and at one stage the patient's breathing stops completely. This causes the patient to gasp for breath. When this condition is exacerbated, the patient wakes up; As a result, the patient begins to breathe normally again. It gives him some peace. As the body becomes tired, he falls asleep again very quickly and the process of snoring begins again. This cycle of events is usually repeated over and over again.

Instead of trying to recover, they wallow in their sadness and thus, experience more failure. This can be life threatening. Such as cardiac arrest, heart failure and cot death in children. These patients are weak and drowsy even during the day and have difficulty concentrating at work. Lack of oxygen in the blood can lead to serious complications such as pulmonary hypertension, memory loss and cardiac arrest.

In the early stages of the disease, it occurs at a certain stage of sleep or in a special position of the body while sleeping.


Nose endoscopy, throat x-ray, chest x-ray, ECG and some regular blood tests are important. Nasal endoscopy (a type of endoscope designed only to look at the nose and trachea) is needed in all cases to determine the condition of the surface of the respiratory tract.

Polysomnography is the best way to diagnose sleep apnea and runny nose. The patient was admitted to the hospital and in a special system, multiple leads (measuring) were placed in different parts of the body and sleep was arranged. It can record sleep disturbances, the ability of the blood to carry oxygen at this time and the activities of other vital organs of the body and various problems. An easy alternative is to record the patient's oxygen level overnight with a pulse oximeter while the patient is asleep.

General tasks

Weight loss will be followed by fatigue and constant tiredness. In many cases, nasal congestion is completely cured by weight loss. If the patient has a habit of smoking and drinking, it should be given up. If you have a habit of taking sleeping pills, it should be avoided. Excessive work during the day should also be avoided.

Special to do

Inflammation or enlargement of the tonsils and adenoid glands is the main cause in children. If this is the case then the only scientific solution is to remove it by surgery. Removal of large adenoids, especially if they cause nasal congestion and sleep apnea, is mandatory. There is no disagreement in this regard anywhere in the world or in any branch of medical science.

The second most common cause of nasal congestion in adults is nasal congestion. Usually nasal congestion, nasal allergies, enlarged nasal flesh, nasal polyps are the main causes of nasal problems. In some cases, these can also be caused by respiratory tumors or tumors of the back of the tongue or tonsils.

Diseases of the larynx or its surroundings are usually caused by stride which is different from the sound of snoring. Diagnosing the difference between these two types of words is often a problem for doctors.

To do
To get rid of a runny nose, you need to treat your nasal problems first. Nasal allergies can be controlled with medication. If the nasal bone is curved, it must be operated on surgically. Above all, a CPAP (continuous positive airway pressure) machine can be used. If there is any problem with the nose before using it, this problem must be solved first. At first glance, using this device may seem a bit unsightly and unusual, but when you start using it, patients begin to reap the benefits.
