Sleep Apnea Symptoms Can Be Controlled With These Steps

The detrimental impact sleep apnea has on the lives of countless sufferers is a very serious matter. Fortunately, with a bit of knowledge and research, it is possible for just about anyone to learn effective techniques for managing the condition. Review the ideas below for some useful information about battling sleep apnea successfully.

For people who are using a CPAP machine, you need to take notes to give to your doctor. If you experience any symptoms, like snoring, that were eliminated when you started using the CPAP machine and they come back, you need to let your doctor know. Only your doctor can properly assess any problems.

If you have just been diagnosed with sleep apnea and prescribed a CPAP, join a CPAP support group. It can be quite difficult to get used to sleeping with a mask on your face every night. Sitting in a room full of other people going through the same thing can be very empowering. You can learn from others who have had the same issues you are having and made adjustments to make it work.

If you have sleep apnea, be sure to ask your doctor every five years if you should have a follow-up sleep study. As your weight and health change, your CPAP pressure may need to be adjusted. The most accurate way to reassess your needs is to have another sleep study with CPAP so the appropriate pressure can be determined.

Try your best to lay off tobacco and nicotine products. Cigarette smoke can irritate your upper airway causing it to swell up, subsequently hindering your ability to breath during the night. Quitting smoking could therefore, significantly improve your sleep apnea symptoms and will also improve your body’s overall health and your feelings of well-being.

Drink one cup of caffeinated coffee a few hours before you go to sleep. It may seem silly to drink a caffeine drink at night, but this can actually help keep your throat open while you sleep. You may have to play around with what time you drink the coffee to avoid restlessness.

If you have been diagnosed with sleep apnea, it is important to avoid drinking alcohol. Alcoholic beverages will relax the muscles in your throat, which makes it more likely that they will block your airway during your sleep. At the very least, avoid any alcoholic beverages in the evening before you get ready for bed.

A great way to know if you are experiencing severe apnea is to keep a sleep journal. Write down all the times that you wake up in the night and also record how you feel in the morning. This will help you to have a record to see your progress.

If simple changes in your lifestyle, such as regular sleep hours and losing weight, have not eliminated your sleep apnea episodes, it is time to consult with a sleep specialist. The specific causes of your sleep apnea can be evaluated, and an individual treatment plan can be designed for you.

As the above article has demonstrated, you have many different treatment methods available to you when it comes to sleep apnea. Everyone is different, and it’s important to find out which treatment option will fit your specific situation best. If you use these tips, you will get better sleep at night. Sleep apnea doesn’t have to run your life; you can take control back today.

Reference quality theater and interior, new home construction. 2008 Electronic House Multiple Award Winner

By IntraHomeSystems – HTN Installer from Garfield, NJ
Dec 18 2014 07:59 am

The basement plan allowed us to design a theater from the ground up, specifying room size and wall boundaries along with a riser plan to accommodate enough seating for four families to watch movies in a relaxed, elegant setting. The owners wanted this to be a place where they wouldn’t be disturbed by outside distractions as they are movie buffs with a substantial DVD collection.

We designed the theater using studio acoustic products so that it complements the cutting edge system located here. By doing this we “couple” the sound of the room to the system by placing reflection, deflective, and absorption panels precisely where needed according to computer calculations of room dimensions. Panels are cleverly hidden behind beautiful full length acoustically transparent fabric that is custom trimmed onto the walls.

“The room is actually a mechanically coupled part of the sound system, the movie sound track and surround sound affects are phenomenal in this theater”. We even had one of a kind Home Systems theater chairs made specifically for this theater complete with motorized recline feature. As far as electronics, no compromise was spared. The system is based around the Digital Projection Titan 250 series professional projector with VIP-2000 video processor, combined with Kaleidescape DVD management system, and Triad Silver theater series speakers.

MrHTN Buys a New HDTV

MrHTN New HDTV

One would think I would be a videophile since I help run websites based on home theaters. The truth is that I’m probably like most people out there …but maybe slightly more picky. HDTVs today have many different features and some of these feature are going to be more important to people than others. For myself, the TV features in order of importance are:

  1. Cost
  2. Size
  3. Manufacturer (reliability)
  4. Glare reduction
  5. Refresh rate (how well does it handle motion)
  6. Shadow details (how good are the blacks)
  7. Brightness
  8. Color accuracy
  9. Internet access built-in
  10. App capable
  11. Display type (plasma or LCD)
  12. Asthetics (How does it look)
  13. 3D capable
  14. THX modes
  15. Video calibration settings and capabilities
  16. Thickness (My TV won’t be on a wall)

I was looking for new TV around 60” and for around $1,700. I’m willing to bet size and cost are going to be the top “features” of a TV most people look at first.

My previous TV was a Toshiba 52″ 720p DLP. It had great picture quality for the price when I bought it back in 2005. However, there were down sides such as the black levels, 720p instead of 1080p, and the bulb replacement. An upgrade was irresistible with TV prices dropping and the increasing picture quality.

DLPs have mostly dropped out of the picture so it was a choice between plasmas and LCDs. After researching some and shopping around, the two display types seemed similar with a slight edge to plasma on black levels and cost.

When Amazon dropped the price of the Panasonic VIERA TC-P65ST30 to under $1,700, I was sold. It had everything I was looking for on top of my list with a 65″ screen size, low cost, great black levels, top picture quality, a reputable manufacturer, low glare, and app capable. It was even 3D capable which is a feature I wasn’t willing to pay extra for.

It’s now been over 3 months since I purchased the TV and I couldn’t be happier. The picture quality is amazing and I received many compliments. TVs now have tons of features so making a list like the one above helped me in prioritizing what is important. Hope it helps others out too.

Autohtn home automation app for AndroidNembus Home Automation creates home automation apps for Android smartphones, iPhones, iPads, tablets, media boxes, blu-ray players and smart TVs. All our apps are designed for easy setup and use. There is a huge amount of interest in home automation products, but people are scared away by the complexity of the equipment and expensive costs. Nembus significantly reduces complexity and costs by using app-capable devices customers already own such as smart TVs, blu-ray players, and media boxes. All our apps are simple to install, simple to setup, and simple to use.

We have a prototype app called AutoHTN available in the Android marketplace. It works with a Vera home automation controller and is used to control lights, sensors, thermostats, cameras, window blinds, receivers, media boxes and more. AutoHTN demonstrates our approach to simplifying home automation.

Our home automation apps for smart TVs, blu-ray players, and media boxes will be available by the end of the year.
