Snoring problem linked to depression

Experiencing breathing problems during sleep may raise your risk of depression, a new study suggests.
Women with sleep apnea, in which breathing becomes shallow or pauses briefly during sleep, were 5.2 times as likely to have depression compared with women without the condition, Health News reported. Men with sleep apnea were 2.4 times as likely to have depression as men without the condition, according to the study from researchers at the Centres for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
Participants in the study who had other breathing problems during sleep also had an increased risk of depression. However, the researchers found no increased likelihood of depression among people who snore. “Snorting, gasping or stopping breathing while asleep was associated with nearly all depression symptoms, including feeling hopeless and feeling like a failure,” said study researcher Anne Wheaton, an epidemiologist with the CDC. “We expected persons with sleep-disordered breathing to report trouble sleeping or sleeping too much, or feeling tired and having little energy, but not the other symptoms.” Both depression and breathing problems during sleep are common, and both are under-diagnosed, the researchers wrote. Screening people who have for one disorder for the other could lead to better diagnosis and treatments, they said.

    The most comfortable and efficient solution
    Orthoapnea ®, is a revolutionary prosthesis which constitutes the most conmfortable and effective alternative for the treatment of snoring and sleep apnea. Intraoral splints alter the position of the mandibula, the tongue and other structures in order to guarantee the free flow of air through the upper airway avoiding the obstruction of air during the night.
    Orthoapnea®, is a device joining all the improvements of nowadays methods. Lateral movement, openness and millimeter controlled progress together in one device are the key to a new generation of intraoral appliances, converting Orthoapnea® in the best proposal. The only device in the world that moves on the jaw even more when the pacient open his mouth, therefore the diameter of the airway increases.
    Orthoapnea for its precise manufacture matches each patient to extraordinary levels / standards.
    Orthoapnea in the only device in the world, capable of letting patiens continue with their normal lives while wearing apparatu. Orthoapnea will not stop the pacient from talking, drinking, and all kinds of movements (lateral, forward, and openness).
