Scary connection between Sleep Apnea and Acid Reflux

10-28-14 GHOST 1

Most Sleep Apnea sufferers have Acid Reflux…. and other comorbidities.

How it happens:
During the cessations of breathing the body will increase its efforts to take in air.
Abdominal contractions are exaggerated and increase until breathing resumes.
The contractions squeeze the stomach and force acid up the esophagus.
The efforts to breathe also increase a negative pressure in the esophagus which also pull up acid.

The winners in this difficult economy will be those Dentists who are able to offer the combination of patient engagement and niche marketing.    Those Dentists who convince people that they understand all their needs, truly care about them, and have a unique and essential serviceto offer, will stand out.  Patients’ priorities have changed. The money is still there. They are willing and ready to spend money on their priorities.

The current need, and “buzz”, is in treating sleep apnea Patients are asking their Dentists about sleep apnea. How comfortable are YOU with the answers? It is reported that less than .5% of practicing Dentists are able to assist the more than 50 million people who suffer from sleep apnea. There is a growing public awareness of the hazards that come from a nocturnal stoppage of breathing. Your patients are becoming increasingly more concerned about the blockage of oxygen to the brain and other organs. Strokes. Heart attacks. Diabetes, Dementia.  As a Care Giver, think of how you can serve. Serve an unfilled need.

High Blood Pressure Linked to Sleep Apnea

3-24-14 SNORING

May is High Blood Pressure Awareness week.

Javier Nieto, MD, associate professor, Epidemiology, Johns Hopkins School of Public Health said, “The connection [to Sleep Apnea] is important because high blood pressure can lead to serious adverse health consequences, including heart attack, stroke, and kidney disease.”

In a study involving more than 6,000 adult men and women age 40 or older, he presence of sleep apnea was detected using polysomnography, which simultaneously records brain waves, heart waves, blood oxygen levels, and breathing rate while a person sleeps.
