Sleep Apnea can lead to memory loss         

March 17, 2009: We are somewhat skeptical of the benefit of surgery to cure snoring, but here's a nice human interest story from Birmingham, UK of a retired doctor who has undergone LAUP

September 30, 2008: Calgary based Tech Avenue Ventures Corp. has concluded a pilot program for its MPowRX anti-snoring appliance and is now making the device available to the public.  The MPowRX Snoring Solution is a one-size-fits-all mouth piece that can be worn while you are sleeping.  The device fits between the lips and teeth and has an aperture with a protrusion for holding the tongue.  This keeps the upper respiratory air passages open, and helps to improve breathing and reduce snoring while you sleep. 

June 19, 2008: Two physicians just opened The Snoring and Apnea Center of California in Culver City, a suburb of Los Angeles. The physicians are sleep specialists and are taking a minimally invasive approach to helping people correct their sleeping and breathing disorders, including performing pillar procedure.

June 12, 2008: A warning to parents with children who snore:  According to a recent study at the University of Melbourne and Monash University, primary snoring in children may affect cardiovascular functioning equivalent to that of moderate obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). Monitoring the heart rate and heart rate variability while the children slept, the researchers discovered the heart rate was much lower in children with primary snoring than those in the control group. Whereas primary snoring had previously been viewed as benign, new evidence suggests that "it can impact cognition, behavior, and academic performance."

June 11, 2008: A University of Virginia study has found that the larger a child's neck size, the greater risk the child will develop a sleep-related breathing disorder. Looking at 215 children whose ages ranged from 18 months old to 18 years old, researchers discovered that of these children, 37.3% were obese and suffered an increased frequency of snoring. There was a larger correlation between apena-hypopnea index (an indicator of the severity of the breathing disorder) and neck size than between AHI and body-mass index, tonsil size, or weight.  The researchers concluded that neck size should be included in the clinical evaluation of children with sleep-related breathing disorders.

June 11, 2008: A UCLA study has found that sleep apnea can lead to brain tissue loss in the area of the brain that stores memory. The brain damage may be caused by the drops in oxygen level caused by the disruption in breathing during the night. Persistent memory loss even after treatment for sleep apnea suggests long term brain damage. Physicians are experimenting with B1 supplements as a possible treatment for this memory loss. B1 is currently the method used to help alcoholic patients with memory loss.
