There is a potential link between sleep deprivation and increased blood pressure.
New York, NY (PRWEB) September 19, 2013
New York Cardiovascular Associates is launching a new campaign via social media to help educate the public about the dangers of chronic sleep deprivation. According to the New York City sleep center, nearly 30% of American adults average less than six hours of sleep a night. The center urges the public to understand the consequences of a long-term lack of sleep and to make time to get the rest they need.
According to a New York Cardiovascular Associates representative, sleep deprivation is linked with a number of health problems. “There is a potential link between sleep deprivation and increased blood pressure. The body uses sleep as a time to repair the heart and blood vessels, as well as regulate stress hormones and maintain the nervous system. A long term lack of sleep can impair the body’s ability to regulate these hormones, potentially leading to high blood pressure.”
The sleep center will be providing information on the many risks associated with long term sleep deprivation through their Facebook and Twitter pages. This new campaign will run throughout the month of September.

Varicose Vein Treatment Options
Varicose veins and spider veins are extremely common in men and women. While spider veins are very small, reddish veins on the surface of the skin, varicose veins are much larger, bulging, tangled veins that may appear bluish in color. Men and women suffer from varicose veins, although women are much more likely to have them.
Today, patients have access to a number of effective varicose vein treatment options. Advancements in technology and medicine have led to the development of effective, minimally invasive treatments that produce optimal results with few side-effects or downtime. These treatments include sclerotherapy, radio frequency ablation, phlebectomy, and endovenous laser ablation.
