(Best Syndication News) - Researchers from the UK found that using Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) equipment to treat obstructive sleep apnea helped improve blood vessel function. Sleep Apnea untreated had shown a reduced blood supply being delivered to the heart. The sleep apnea and blood function study results will be published in the Hypertension: Journal of the American Heart Association.

After 26 weeks of using CPAP equipment to treat obstructive sleep apnea, the study found improved blood supply function in the participants that were diagnosed with obstructive sleep apnea. CPAP equipment is constant air flow that delivered usually by a mask covering the nasal passages. This continuous airflow helps keep the airway passages open while the person with apnea sleeps at night.

(Best Syndication News) - Dr. Oz and Dr. Roizen have written a new book called, “You: The Owner’s Manual for Teens” and shared a few tips on ABC’s ‘GMA’ TV show today. The two doctors offered a few tips to improve the health of teens.

In the first part of the segment, Doctor Oz went to a school to answer questions for teens. Doctor Oz had his sixteen-year old daughter with him. The first question was about hair loss in teen years. Dr. Oz said there is medicine that can slow down the process. Another teen asked about dark circles even though she has plenty sleep and eats healthy. Dr. Oz said that is a sign of allergies and she should change her pillow to either a Hypoallergenic one or put a casing on the pillow. Doctor Oz surveyed the class about how much sleep they were getting at night. Almost half the kids in the class did not get at least 7 hours of sleep.

CPAP treatment for Obstructive Sleep Apnea helps to prevent daytime sleepiness

(Best Syndication News) - Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) patients reported less daytime sleepiness when using Continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) equipment, according to a European study. The results were beneficial for those with minimal OSA reporting less daytime sleepiness after six months using CPAP equipment. The study results were presented today at the ATS 2011 International Conference in Denver.

CPAP is medical equipment that provides a constant flow of air to help keep the airway passages open while a person sleeps. In untreated obstructive sleep apnea, the airway passage becomes blocked when sleeping. Snoring is often a symptom that a person could have OSA. In order to be diagonosed with OSA, often a person goes to a sleep study lab to have their breathing measured to see how often they stop breathing during the night.

Obesity - Staying up late and sleeping in late packs on the pounds

(Best Syndication News) - A study from researchers at Northwestern Medicine, found that late nighters tend to have bad eating habits and tended to have a higher Body Mass Index (BMI). The researchers found that those who stayed up late and then slept in late in the morning ate less fruit and vegetables, tended to eat more fast food, and drink more sugared sodas. The late night group ate on average 248 more calories each day than the people that slept during normal hours. This study is currently in the published online edition of the journal Obesity.

Co-lead author Kelly Glazer Baron, a health psychologist and a neurology instructor at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine warns that these eating habits that late night people have could possibly cause a two-pound per-month weight gain. The person would have to do more exercise to accommodate the extra calorie intake to avoid the weight gain.
