On March 26, mattress store Online Bed Quilt responds to an article published by the Independent, which details the rise in obstructive sleep apnea in the UK and discusses World Sleep Day.
According to the [Independent, symptoms of obstructive sleep apnea could be very easy to spot. For instance, snoring and breathing pauses during sleep are the most common signs. This serious sleep disorder is affecting many people in the UK, the article says. It could cause heart disease, depression, stroke and diabetes. However, the article maintains that 80 percent of people with obstructive sleep apnea go untreated and undiagnosed.
Justin Maas, a representative from mattress store Online Bed Quilt, says obstructive sleep apnea affects millions of people worldwide. “It’s one of the most serious types of sleep disorders,” he says. “Severe obstructive sleep apnea can lead to pauses in breathing that could last for up to 40 seconds. This could cause sleep disturbances, but also decrease blood oxygen levels.”
Maas says it’s important to recognize symptoms of sleep apnea. “If you’re having trouble sleeping, it could be the condition of your mattress, but it could also be obstructive sleep apnea,” he says. “If you’re having trouble sleeping, it might be wise to visit a sleep clinic or a physician to test for sleep disorders.”
World Sleep Day, which was held on March 15, raised awareness for sleep apnea and other serious disorders.
“Not too many people know about [World Sleep Day, but I think it’s a great event that needs to be publicized more,” Maas says. “World Sleep Day provides information on medication, driving, and the social aspects of dealing with a sleep disorder. I really applaud the World Association of Sleep Medicine and the World Sleep Day Committee for creating such a supportive event.”
