Sleep Disorders > Avoid Obstructive Sleep Apnoea - Breathe Correctly

Breathe in, breathe out. If you thought getting your daily supply of oxygen was as simple as that, think again. Every breathe you take make difference to you body. Be it ‘under-breathing’ (breathing shallower or slower than normal) or ‘over breathing’ (breathing faster or too often). One can have allergic sinusitis, triggered by dust and pollen, due to incorrect breathing. Obstructive Sleep Apnoea (OSA) both in children and adults is getting cause of great concern. Obese or overweight people have problems in breathing right as their oxygen requirement is more due to fat deposits in their nasal passage. A breathing technique in Australia called Buteyko trains people to breathe in a controlled way to maintain the level of carbon dioxide.

Many children suffer from a sleep disorder called Obstructive Sleep Apnoea (OSA) due to shallow breathing. Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) in adults leads to hypertension, heart and lung disorders. Abnormal breathing can have far –reaching effects on you well-being, say doctor and scientist today. How we breathe is important in more ways than simply determining oxygen intake and helping our bodies to relax. Research shows that it can cause long term chemical and physiological effects.

Inhaling and exhaling from the nose is obviously the most natural way to breathe. But are we doing it right? Most people do not realize that they are breathing incorrectly. Six out of 10 patients are breathing from the mouth, it’s dry air breathing and can lead to bronchitis. When you breathe through nose, it humidifies the air passage and prevents sinusitis. When snoring, you are breathing through the mouth and it causes turbulence in the body.

You might think that a lock of adequate oxygen in your body should not be a major problem. After all, breathing is about filling your lungs with oxygen and expelling carbon dioxide. But if you breathe too deeply or too often you lose too much carbon dioxide, which can result in a panic attack as you upset the acid/alkaline balance in the body. Breathing out too often can trigger some harmful metabolic activity as well.

Incorrect breathing slows down the oxygen intake to body parts. People can also experience sleepiness and fatigue due to wrong breathing techniques. Irregular sleeping can lead to  Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA), this can be avoided by regular deep breathing exercise, steam and regular jogs to help counter possible breathing problems.

New Breathing technique Buteyko: A review from the University of Westminister last year described how the effects of hypocapnia (where the level of carbon dioxide in the blood is less than normal) on blood flow and oxygen in the body could cause increased joint and muscle pain. In fact, a breathing technique in Australia called Buteyko trains people to breathe in a controlled way so that they do not become deleted of carbon dioxide.

Experts advise that balanced breathing is crucial to overall well- being. Breathing incorrectly could result in lack of energy, headaches and depression.

If you do not breathe right, you could have allergic sinusitis, triggered by dust and pollen. In fact, nasal blockage results in breathing from the mouth and has harmful consequences. Breathing wrong is also sign of a patient having lung problems. People should find a balance in their breathing and not ignore incorrect breathing as it can result in long term illnesses. The point of breathing should be to ‘breathe well and oxygenate well’
