The reasons are simple - The Stop Snoring And Sleep Apnea Program sleep deprivation places considerable pressure on the heart, which can lead to heart complications.Sleep Apnea and Heart Disease Sleep apnea is a sleeping disorder whereby the sufferer will stop breathing at regular times whilst asleep. This can last into the minutes at a time and will usually take place a number of times an hour.
This causes the body to use it's oxygen reserves quite considerably and can lead to a build up in carbon dioxide in the blood stream. This build up places extra strain on the heart as it is required to pump harder to move what oxygenated blood is left around the body.Furthermore the lack of oxygen causes blood cells to contract, increasing the body's blood pressure.
Indeed it is strongly suspected, based on current research, that apnea can severely limit the body's ability to regulate it's own blood pressure.This 'double hit' of increased work load and higher blood pressure can lead to a dramatic increase of the likelihood of heart disease, and because it is not from outside influences or traditional methods the normal medical practices of dealing with heart disease may well prove less suitable.
