I must admit it really does sound much like the Lord Vader’s breathing when you turn the CPAP machine on.
These jokes now carry new meaning as the spotlight is now on a sleep disorder that affects an estimated 22 million adults in the Unites States.
In 2008 I was a part of a research project that concentrated on a novel treatment for sleep apnea associated with use of opiates.
The findings of this study revealed that opiate users exhibited central sleep apnea events that required a special device to stimulate a breath.
When an opiate is introduced to someone with untreated sleep apnea the airway is blocked and our brains cannot get the message to our body to breathe.
These incidents can last anywhere from 10 seconds up to a couple of minutes and can occur as often as every minute of sleep.
