If you feel tired after sleep and have morning headaches, you may be diagnosed with sleep apnea symptoms

If your sleep is disrupted, you usually begin to experience sleep apnea symptoms during the day and your husband or wife may witness an apnea or point out some other symptoms that you probably show at night. It's necessary to admit that polysomnogram was once introduced as a special science for studying people`s sleep to know more about electrical activity in their eyes, brain, muscles, heart in addition to measurements of breathing and oxygen. The final aim is to treat people from sleep disorders.
Obstructive sleep apnoea-hypopnoea syndrome (or OSAHS) is referred to as a sleep disorder in which an individual has unbalanced breathing at night and is extremely sleepy throughout the day. As a matter of fact while sleeping the upper airway, called pharynx collapses continually with unequal intervals. Sleep apnea symptoms are always determined when the airway collapse is blocked totally, cutting off the flow of air. Sleep apnea occurs when the collapse is simply partial. The airway is reduced and the person is likely to experience hypoventilation which is also called inadequate breathing. The period of very restricted breathing (or gap in breathing) is usually defined as about 10 seconds, though it varies from individual to individual. The frequency of sleep apnea is used to review the severity of this condition. The amount of time that the sleep apnea symptoms occur in an hour is called the apnoea index (or AHI) or the respiratory disturbance index called in the abbreviated form - RDI. Therefore, when people with sleep apnea begin sleeping, the muscles in their airway relax. The collapsing of the airway compels people to come out of their deep sleep and either wake briefly or sleep lightly, while they are trying to breathe more deeply. However, the person quickly resumes deep sleep and the cycle begins again. The time of insomnia is so brief that even though it may occur hundreds of times a night but the person usually doesn't remember waking up. It's necessary to mention that sleep apnea overtakes around one in 100 people. Overweight men between 25 and 65 years of age are most generally exaggerated but it may also happen to children with enlarged adenoids or tonsils. What are the real sleep apnoea symptoms and how could we recognize them? People affected by sleep apnoea are often unconscious of the fact they have this condition. Though, when their sleep is disrupted they commonly begin to experience the basic sleep apnea symptoms: sleep disorder at night, weariness and apathy during the day. But the major problem is the time when you or your partner (husband, wife) may observe an apnea or point out other typical symptoms that occur during your sleep. It is necessary to note the most commonly and spread symptoms which include very excessive daytime sleepiness; a lack of concentration and interest; snoring, etc. However, of course, not everyone who snores has sleep apnea; frequent awakenings throughout the night; problems with breathing; real weariness after sleep; gasping, choking or snorting for the duration of sleep; changes in one's behavior; extreme urination at night called nocturia; unpleasant morning headaches; and dry mouth on waking. The scientists who have been studying the problem of sleep apnea call it the polysomnogram, which is a sleep study consisting of measurements of electrical activity in human brain, eyes, muscles and heart additionally to measurements of breathing and oxygen. Moreover, the polysomnogram includes also multiple recordings of physiological parameters in order to assess wakefulness and sleep. As a result, if you are diagnosed with sleep apnea syndrome and you have all sleep apnea symptoms, you should be referred to a sleep specialist for special and qualified treatment.
