Part Two: Health Benefits of an Adjustable Bed
May. 21, 2011

 Obstructive Sleep Apnea : An Adjustable bed can help OSA is a blockage or narrowing of the airways in your nose, mouth, or throat. This usually occurs when the throat muscles and tongue relax during sleep and partially block the airway. It is estimated that 1out of every 5 Americans suffer from mild OSA. The main symptoms of sleep apnea are loud snoring and feeling very sleepy during the day. Your bed partner may notice periods when you stop breathing during sleep. Other symptoms may include tossing and turning during sleep, waking up with a headache, and feeling irritated and unrested. When you stop breathing or breathe very slowly during your sleep, it may result in less oxygen in your blood. Over time, this lack of oxygen can lead to serious health problems. If you have sleep apnea, you may be more likely to get high blood pressure, abnormal heart rate, heart failure, coronary artery disease, and stroke. If you have sleep apnea, you may have difficulty concentrating and feel tired throughout the day. You may fall asleep during a conversation or while you are carrying out daily activities. You are also at higher risk for depression. Simply having the ability to elevate your head while sleeping opens up your airways, making breathing much easier.
