Do you snore every night? How often do you suffer from day time fatigue and sleepiness? If so, you may be suffering from obstructive sleep apnea. The fact is, OSA occurs in almost 10 % of the total population, but is thought to be one of those underestimated condition where a lot many people are suffering from it but don’t know about it yet. Hence, it is very important to understand sleep apnea and know about its treatment.

What is Sleep Apnea?

Obstructive Sleep Apnea or simply, sleep apnea is a condition where breathing stops while you are asleep, even though for short spells. The word apnea, in itself means without breathe or stopping in breath. Sleep Apnea occurs when the walls of the throat comes together, blocking the upper airway during sleep. Breathing continues to stop until brain record drop in oxygen or lack of breathing and sends a wakeup call. Sleeper rouses slightly, opens the upper airway, gasps and get back to the sleeping mode immediately.

This pattern can repeat itself hundreds of times in a single night leaving the person feeling sleepy and lazy in the morning.

How Heart disease and Sleep Apnea are correlated?

As we all know, our circulatory system is responsible for delivering oxygen to all parts of our body, every time a sleep apnea patient stops breathing during sleep, the amount of oxygen in the blood decreases thus hindering the oxygen supply to the body cells as well. And imagine, when the similar thing happens throughout the night, how much stress would be on your circulatory system. This further creates serious medical condition such as a congestive heart failure, stroke and other heat diseases.

Heart disease and Sleep Apnea are found to be linked with each other after researchers have deduced that sleep apnea treatments are not only good for the patients who are suffering from heart conditions but also for those who are at a higher risk of heart failure.  In general poor sleep has been linked to increased risk of heart disease. Obstructive sleep apnea has also been linked to artery damage and high blood pressure.

How to treat sleep apnea?

Sleep apnea is a critically serious sleeping disorder that needs immediate treatment. You may need to choose one of the following sleep apnea or sleep disorder treatments.

Lifestyle changes- If you are diagnosed to have mild sleep apnea, you can treat it by considering few lifestyle changes such as weight loss, stop smoking and alcohol consumption and avoiding bad sleeping habits like sleeping on the back (instead you can sleep on sides to improve your condition).

CPAP (Continuous Positive Airway Pressure) - CPAP is the most recommended obstructive sleep apnea treatment. The machine uses a steady stream of air to keep your airway open throughout the time you sleep. A mask with a hose will be attached to this machine kept at the bedside.

Other treatments of Sleep Apnea - Apart from Lifestyle changes and CPAP, there are Oral appliance therapy wherein a device is fitted inside your mouth to prevent the airways from collapsing by holding your tongue or sliding the jaw to ease breath while you are asleep. Other options will include surgery, where the surgeon will remove extra tissues from your throat that may block the airway.

The time we spend asleep is the most relaxing and restorative time. Yet for those who suffer from sleep apnea and other sleep disorders, sleeping time can become a struggling period. Hence, it is very important to consider Sleep disorder treatment after proper diagnosis of the problem. Do mind, sleep disorder treatment or sleep apnea treatment can also act as a preventive medicine for heart diseases, diabetes and high blood pressure.

Leaking toilet with the broken flushing system, clogged pipes and wobbling seat shouldn’t remain in your house for too long, especially if you take into consideration the number of times you use it every single day.

It’s not only the matter of your personal comfort (even though one has to feel comfy while scrolling through the Instagram and sitting in the bathroom) but also of the house safety and water efficiency. Old faulty toilets may break down and flood your house with you know what any moment. Besides, they use twice the amount of water their newer alternatives do per a single flush. Thus, they deteriorate your water efficiency and add unnecessary dollars to your water bill.

But, when you understand that the toilet replacement is inevitable, you need to approach toilet shopping quite seriously and not to get fooled by the exclusive shop offers and high prices, which do not always stand for the top quality. These tips will walk you through the shopping process and prepare you to choose the most comfortable and qualitative pedestal within a reasonable budget.

After you do so, make sure to hire an experienced plumber to get your brand new ceramic throne installed professionally, as the high quality of the toilet installation directly influences its lifespan and minimizes the breakdowns and pipe issues.

10 tips to buy the best toilet for your bathroom

  1. It’s all about the flush. Powerful flush is one of the key points you should pay attention to when determining the quality of a toilet, as it ensures the clean finish and effective water use. As the production standards require manufacturers to reduce the amount of water the toilets release for a single flush, it’s the power of the flush that does most of the removal job. Shop for a toilet at the bathroom centers, where they have a bunch of pedestals installed, and conduct a flush test. You may also check out toilet reviews on Consumerreports.org to see how other consumers like certain types and models of modern toilets.
  2. Opt for the pressure-assisted models for better water efficiency, more waste removal power and  toilet tank drip+sweat control, but stick to the gravity-feed ones if you don’t like noisy flushes. Consider buying a dual-flush toilet to be able to control the amount of flushed water depending on your needs and improve your water efficiency even more. 
  3. Be aware of the sizes. While standard toilets are made to fit into the standard 12-inch gap between the wall and the toilet outlet, you may also find 10-14-inch options to meet different bathroom dimensions. Thus, you need to measure that distance to be able to get the toilet that fits into the space available at your bathroom.
  4. Don’t be shy to do the sit test. If you find a high-quality appliance, you’ll be stuck with it for 10 years or more. So, make sure to get the one you find really comfortable to sit on. And, it’s not only the shape of the seat that might influence your choice. Most people note, that higher pedestals (17-19-inch tall bowls instead of standard 15-inch ones) are a lot more comfortable to use. They’re not just easier to get on and get off. They’re also better for our backs and knees. However, additional height causes additional costs. And, you might want to stick to the standard height if you’re choosing a toilet for the kids’ bathroom.
  5. Get educated about the prices. You should be comfortable anywhere from $300-700. Toilets that cost less than won’t surprise you with proper quality and durability, even if the manufacturer and the seller try to prove that wrong. If you can afford the more expensive toilet, go ahead and by one, but I don’t think that you should overstep your budget for ‘special additional features’ those high-end toilets have. It’s just a toilet, right?
  6. If you need a compact appliance, stick to the round shape of its bowl. But, bear in mind that you might find it less comfortable than the elongated one.
  7. Opt for the braided and flexible stainless steel water supply lines to minimize the leaks and repairs. Don’t forget about the individual shut-off valve to be able to cut off your toilet’s water connection when you need to stop it from flooding the house without leaving the rest of your home with no water.
  8. Don’t get one-piece or wall-hung pedestals unless you plan to hire a professional plumber who’s qualified enough to conduct all necessary plumbing system remodels (for the wall-hung one) and install those types of toilets safely. Don’t attempt lifting and installing one-piece bowls on your own, as they’re too heavy for one unprofessional person to handle.
  9. Pick the color carefully. Latest bathroom design trends might persuade you to buy a boldly-colored toilet. However, you need to take into consideration the fact that some colors don’t age as well as others do. That applies both to the functional and design side of the issue. Traditional white or black thrones won’t let you down, though.
  10. If you want a cushioned seat for your pedestal, be ready to change it quite often, as it will crack and get ruined pretty fast.
