New Year, New Motto to Follow

As we start off 2016, let’s talk about resolutions!

Who knows someone – or has been that person – who says that this new year is going to be the year they will get healthier?

There’s always the cliché “be healthier” or something similar that tops the list of “most popular resolutions”, but how many people actually follow through with that resolution is a mystery. This year, Breathe Medical wants to make it a point for everyone to keep their health on the forefront of their minds.

Our motto is [highlight dark=”no”]”Quality Sleep for a Healthier Life”[/highlight] and that holds true no matter what time of the year it is, but in order for people to feel fully healthy, sleep is essential.

[wp-svg-icons icon=”checkmark-2″ wrap=”span”] Our team always ensures everyone in our care that being healthy is a long-term commitment that cannot be rushed. Only after thoughtful time and effort will your short-term gains turn into long-term benefits of healthier lives, so with each patient’s compliance and Breathe Medical’s support, healthy lives can really thrive.

[wp-svg-icons icon=”info-2″ wrap=”span”] Even though all of our bodies are different, we all have heard that adults need at least 6-8 hours of sleep on a nightly basis to function properly. Without the proper sleep, our bodies can deteriorate at a much more rapid pace because there is no downtime for our internal systems to repair themselves.

[wp-svg-icons icon=”contrast” wrap=”span”] Those with sleep apnea are in even worse conditions during the sleep cycle because nighttime doesn’t bring as much rest as it should. Some may experience coughing or choking when their airways close up at unforeseeable moments. Some may keep tossing and turning throughout the night, due to the abrupt coughing and sputtering after every apnea or hypopnea episode. Some may even have trouble falling back asleep at all with the disruption the sleep apnea has caused. It’s because of these irregular sleep patterns that people afflicted with sleep apnea do not get the sufficient amount of sleep.

Don’t wait until you feel the dire effects of sleep deprivation to get help.

Potential symptoms of sleep apnea or effects of sleep deprivation may include:

  • Perpetual fatigue
  • Memory loss
  • Learning difficulties
  • Even death (the number of fatal automobile accidents due to falling asleep at the wheel is staggering).
