Finally, I want to highly that my doctor–Robson Capasso at the Stanford Sleep Clinic–is a great doctor. If there is any way you can have the surgery performed by him, you should try to do it. Dr Capasso strikes me as a problem solver. He is very aware of the latest sleep apnea research and is still actively contributing to the ongoing discovery (many older doctors, it is sad to say, no longer follow the latest research, which is a shame because sleep apnea medicine is evolving so rapidly). Personality wise, he strikes me as sort of an alpha male who is excited by challenges and has a very energetic personality. He has strikes me as very conservative in the way that he personally performs his UPPP (taking care to preserve the uvula, for example, which contributes so much to speaking and food chewing) I can say that my surgery went very well in terms of the way the throat tissues healed (very cleanly) and in the way that my new pharynx looks (very symmetrical and wide). I attribute this to entirely to Dr Capasso’s surgery technique and his care for details.

I started out at 209 LBS and am down to 204.5 LBS which is good because I wanted to lose about 10 LBS for the last bunch of months and eating yogurt and soft foods is helping me lose weight. If you have sleep apnea I would recommend to not wait around just get it done. Like I said I had atrial fibrillation for years, a cardiologist just gave me meds, beta blockers, that always made me feel over tired, took the edge off. I went to an Electro Physiologist (I am sure I spelled that wrong) and he said that I most likely had sleep apnea which in-turn starves the heart of oxygen when you sleep which causes Affib. I had heart ablation surgery where they go in and burn off nerves that causes your heart to go into affib which is caused by the sleep apnea and that worked great. The ablation surgery is not a big deal, just one night in the hospital no real pain, if you have affib go see an EP doctor, get the surgery, it fixes it.

The experiment showed that during the third week of the experiment the adolescents in the sleep extension group had earlier bedtimes, slept earlier, spent more time in bed and slept for longer periods than adolescents in the control group....

The link between sleep apnea and changes in the state of the brain is important news for clinicians, Macey said. Especially because there is evidence that treating sleep apnea, such as with using , may return patients’ brain chemicals back to normal levels. Researchers plan to continue investigating this.

Furthermore, multiple studies have discovered a decrease in both gray and white matter in the brains of subjects with OSA. A published in Sleep journal found significant reductions in gray matter concentrations in certain areas of the brain. This led principal investigator Doctor Seung Bong Hong of the Sungkyunkwan University School of Medicine in Seoul to conclude that “Poor sleep quality and progressive brain damage induced by OSA could be responsible for poor memory, emotional problems, decreased cognitive functioning and increased cardiovascular disturbances.” In 2008, a UCLA found significant damage in the brain’s fiber pathways and structural alterations in its white matter, especially in areas that regulate mood, memory, and blood pressure.

People with sleep apnea tend to experience a range of daytime mental symptoms primarily due to the lack of restorative sleep from waking up multiple times an hour throught out the entire night. These symptoms include , shortened attention span, moodiness, and especially reduced short-term recall.
