MADRID, April 27 (EUROPA PRESS) –
Women tend to underestimate their severity, both in terms of frequency and scope, according to a new adult study that was listed to assess suspicion of a sleep disorder at the Sorocaba Medical Center in Beersheba, Israel.
The results showed that 88 percent of women were fed (591 out of 675), but only 72 percent admitted doing so (496 out of 675). On the contrary, genuine (92.6%) and self-sustained snoring (93.1%) were almost identical in men.
In addition, the study, published in the Journal of Clinical Sleep Medicine, also found that women are loud-speaking men, with an average maximum intensity of snoring of 50 decibels in women and 51.7 decibels in men. About 49% of women had serious or very severe convulsions (329 out of 675), but only 40% of women rated their convulsions at this level of severity (269 of 675).
"We found that although there are no differences in the severity of gagging between the sexes, women tend to ignore the fact that they feed and underestimate the extent of their snuff – explains Nimrod Maimon, chief researcher and professor at the Faculty of BSU for Health Sciences and head of internal medicine – women reported that they rarely torture and described it as milder. "
Snoring is a respiratory sound generated in the upper respiratory tract during sleep. Its intensity can vary and often disturbs sleeping a partner in the bed. Snoring is a frequent warning sign for obstructive sleep apnea, a chronic illness that involves a recurrent collapse of the upper respiratory tract during sleep.
The study involved 1,913 patients, with an average age of 49, referring to sleep disturbance centers at the university hospital for evaluation. The participants received a questionnaire to evaluate the severity of their snoring. The target volume of snoring was quantified using a calibrated digital speaker during an overnight sleep study. The intensity of snoring is classified as mild (40 to 45 decibels), moderate (45-55 decibels), severe (55-60 decibels) or very severe (60 decibels or more).
According to the authors, there is a social stigma associated with women's scalding. Therefore, women may not respond to snoring issues, which may contribute to the insufficient diagnosis of obstructive sleep apnea in women.
"The fact that women report spasms less often and described it as milder can be one of the barriers that prevent women from reaching sleeping clinics for the sleep study," Maicon warns.
Therefore, it is recommended that health care providers evaluate women for suspected obstructive sleep apnea, which take into account other factors besides stroke reported by the patient. For example, women with sleep apnea may be more likely than men to report other symptoms such as fatigue or fatigue during the day.
