Posted by Sophie Summers | Jun 9, 2019 SLEEPU SLEEP PULSE OXYGEN MONITOR Did you know that one in five adults who snore can suffer from obstructive sleep apnea (OSA)? This can cause you to take in less than optimal amounts of oxygen lowering your blood oxygen levels and interrupting your sleep! If you feel tired through your day even though you think you spent for a healthy (7-9 hours a night) amount of time that night, you could be suffering from these sleep interruptions. Since our nightly sleep cycle circulates from light to deep, REM sleep, interruptions can wake you enough to restart your natural sleep cycle. This leads to not enough REM sleep. The exact number of sleep disturbances is hard to determine without a sleep monitoring device. The Wellue SleepU is a sleep monitor that you wear overnight to track your oxygen levels and heart rate. SleepU is a highly accurate and FDA registered device listed as a Class II medical device. DESIGN Traditional SpO2 sleep sensors have a “Duckbill” design that attached to the tip of your finger. The flaw in this design is that is can easily come off your figure during the night. This type of design also does not allow free movement of your finger. Ring Sensor: The patented ring sensor design with the SleepU device was designed to prevent it from slipping off your figure and giving your figure fee range of movement. Wrist/Ring: This sleep monitoring device has two parts. First, there is a part that you wear around your wrist like a watch. The other goes around your thumb like a ring. There is a cord that connects the ring to the bracelet. Rechargeable Battery: The battery recharges with a USB cable, and it takes 2 to 3 hours to charge. FEATURES Continuous SpO2 and HR Monitoring: SleepU will continuously monitor your Oxygen levels and heart rate throughout the night. Vibration Alerts: You can set vibration alerts to alert you gently enough, so you adjust your sleeping position when it senses that your blood oxygen levels are dropping. The light vibration does not make noise that will wake your partner, and you can adjust the insanity of the vibration. Built-in Memory: The data will be tracked and stored in the device even without being connected to the App. It can store up to 4 sleep sessions, and all the data will sync to your smartphone once commended to the App. The built-in memory can store four sleep sessions, each lasting up to 10 hours. APP Personal Account: You will have your account so you can view your reports on your smartphone or your computer. You can also take notes to record any comments and lifestyle choices that might have affected your sleep. Android/ iOS: This App is compatible with iSO 9.0 and above and Android 5.0 and above. App and Desktop Reports: You can view the data that the SleepU sleep monitor collects through the night on the mobile App or your computer. The report will give you a visual insight into your blood oxygen and heart rate trends. You will be able to view different sleep analysis like the time, amount, and intensity of oxygen level drops. Share: You can download the reports in a PDF and CSV format. However, the O2 Insight PC software currently only works with Windows software. It is not presently comparable with Mac. You can share the reports with your family or doctor. WHERE TO BUY SLEEPU AND PRICE? You can buy the SleepU device directly from the Wellue website.

The influence of partner snoring on loving relationship? Couples meant to stick together through thick and thin. However, snoring can push the relationship to break up. The British Snoring and Sleep Apnea Association found that 20million Brits are experiencing sleep deprivation because their partner snores. Sleep is of great importance to human beings; getting enough rest time at night is necessary for everyone. Snoring is impolite for everyone in any situation, especially in severe snoring such as obstructive sleep apnea can cause stress on intimate relationships. It is undeniable that the contradiction between loving partners may be caused by partner snoring. Most people do this after finding their partner snores heavily: 1)For couples, sleep in separate rooms. 2)For boy and girlfriends, consider breaking up. These incredible situations are real problems rather than jokes, and serious sleep disorders can be fatal to the tolerance limit of loving. Why does snoring worsen relationships? 1)A good relationship is always estranged by incomprehension. If you can't fall asleep because your partner snores loudly, it's easy to resent the trouble maker. Snorers also feel helpless and guilty about your complaints and anger. 2)Snoring can lead to poor communication between intimate relationships. Insufficient sleep leads to irritability, sleep disorders are not just a problem for non-snorers. Snoring is caused by respiratory diseases, which means that the sleep quality of snorers is also affected. Inadequate sleep can affect mood, thinking ability, judgment, and the ability to deal with stress and conflict. All of these can explain why communication often breaks down when you and your partner try to talk about it. We should give more tolerance to close people and make more efforts for future happiness. How to alleviate the awkward relationship caused by snoring? 1)Practical monitoring equipment A notable manifestation of snorers is apnea. Monitoring oxygen saturation levels overnight and reminding snorers of hypoxia are very common needs. Pulse oximeter supplier--WELLUE, creating innovative and portable wristband night oxygen monitor to help you solve this problem. Overnight tracking oxygen levels, heart rate with vibration alert can remind you to keep away from sleep apnea. Make snoring less scary. Wellue cares about your breath health and publishes the related original wellness content. In Top 25 Sleep Apnea Blogs you will find more resources about sleep apnea topics. 2)Snorers express a positive therapeutic attitude Mutual encouragement is very important for the growth of an intimate relationship. Non-snorers have been exhausted or frustrated during the partner snoring period. Snorers should show a friendly attitude to non-snorers as much as possible and actively participate in treatment. 3)Strengthen communication Sleeping in separate rooms is an indication of physical and mental separation. Through regular fitness, choosing appropriate treatment products. The couple can participate in social activities together, which can help strengthen their feelings by creating time to get along with each other.

You are sleeping and dreaming about unicorns, but do you know that your breath may stop and there may be the lack of oxygen in the blood, and you may be suffering from obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). Since normally people do not really experience symptoms, just wake up tired and feel sleepy during the day, it is not easy to detect it in its first phase. Yet at least one in five adults who snore suffer from OSA in the US, usually, sleep apnea patients are surprised when they are diagnosed with this condition. Their airways are temporarily closed, preventing breathing, and they breathe less oxygen. These apneas can happen hundreds of times per night, apnea might even generate hypertension, heart disease, brain attacks or diabetes. The SleepU sleep oxygen monitor is designed for snorers and people suffering from OSA. It tracks your blood oxygen and heart rate level as well as your body movements. It can tell whether it is worth investigating sleep apnea further with a health professional. This is cost-effective, whereas diagnostic tests require overnight stays at a sleep lab and can cost thousands of dollars. Using SleepU can prevent you from making those unnecessary trips to a sleep lab, or alert you to the fact that you may need to visit them. Its adjustable vibration alert in the patented ring sensor will nudge you to change position to let you breathe more oxygen and sleep better. The SleepU is USB disk sized and equipped with a ring sensor to track blood oxygen level and heart rate. Unlike other fitness wearables tracking blood oxygen level as part of a more extensive feature, SleepU exists solely to monitor your sleep blood oxygen. It is transmissive oximetry and measures blood oxygen level with medical-grade accuracy, whereas other wearable fitness devices utilize the reflectance pulse oximetry. Usually, hospital use transmissive oximetry, and this is where SleepU sets itself apart from main consumer-oriented sleep tracking devices. How can you benefit from smart vibration? SleepU has a unique design with a vibrator built in its ring sensor rather than main unit, which makes it suitable for whole night sleep. When your blood oxygen level drops below your preset level (e.g. below 90%), the ring sensor will vibrate and stir you to wake up gently, remind you to change your position, helping you to reopen your airway to reduce snoring and breathe more oxygen. If you are reluctant to wear a ring on your finger in bed because you consider it will disturb your sleep, I have to tell you that the SleepU sleep oxygen monitor is soft and comfortable to wear on. Since other devices usually cover your whole finger, oppressing your finger, making it numb and sweaty, and are easy to fall off from your finger, SleepU feels like wearing nothing. The silent vibration instead of audible beeping doesn’t disturb your partner. You can adjust vibration intensity and threshold in App to fit you best. So the smart vibration function is useful for everyone, but it is especially useful for people who snore and those who have to live with sleep apnea, as well as their partners who sleep with them. Is my CPAP machine effective? SleepU tracks SpO2 and heart rate overnight, it helps you to see whether the CPAP machine or oxygenator is effective and provides more info for therapy. How to operate? Simply wear it on your wrist overnight, no need to press a button, it records O2 saturation and heart rate automatically. No need to connect with your phone as it works even when not connected: 4 sessions will be stored in the device while the data will sync once it is connected. Absolutely, you can also connect SleepU with your smartphone or tablet while using, to watch your real-time SpO2 and heart rate. Sleep insight with ViHealth APP Next morning, you wake up, take off the device and enter the ViHealth APP to view the detailed report. You will see your overnight blood oxygen level, how many times your oxygen drops, how long your oxygen is below 90%, heart rate, body movement and O2 score. O2 score is an easy and simple index to tell if your SpO2 is healthy while sleeping. It is calculated based on the drop time and how severe it drops, the higher the better. You can also log notes to record your comments, such as lifestyle or therapy. Or share overnight oximetry data and trends with doctors or friends for advice. Share PC report with a doctor With the included cable, you can connect the device to your PC or laptop, upload your overnight oximetry data to the PC software, export sleep report, save it as PDF or CSV format, share unlimited reports to your doctor or friends, and it is totally free! Take it everywhere with you SleepU is USB rechargeable, working up to two nights on one charge. It can not work for a week like other fitness or sleep tracker, as the ring sensor continuously tracks your overnight oxygen saturation every second, that’s to say it will not ignore your blood oxygen event per second. As we know, their founders have over ten years of experience in medical device R&D. If you suffer from snoring or sleep apnea, and you are tired of others constantly reminding you of it and giving you silly pieces of advice on how to deal with it, you should certainly consider trying the SleepU sleep oxygen monitor. As the device is certainly the most convenient tracker for measuring SpO2 during sleep. Share From: gadgets-reviews.com

Yes,you could not avoid the death threat by sleep apnea. The Murderer of Princess Leia Christmas in 2016,Princess Leia, Carrie Fisher, left us forever. Star Wars official commented her:“She's Princess Leia all over the world and our most special friend...” Her death is enough to make Hollywood and all the fans indulge in grief for a long time.According to the report of LA County Coroner’s Office,the causes of death were listed as“sleep apnea,atherosclerotic heart disease, drug use”. This article emphasizes that sleep apnea is not a one-off lethal blow to human beings,but the pain of sleep disorder just like chronic killing for people’s life. What are the signs of sleep apnea? If you feel tired even after a full night's sleep,if you or someone you loved snores loudly and frequently, has incomprehensible and persistent high blood pressure, experiences gasping at night , suffers fatigue at daytime, or awakens with a dry mouth,or morning headache,please do not perfunctorily treat the possibility you might have sleep apnea. What cause sleep apnea? A recent study from AASM estimated that almost 30 million adults in the U.S. have sleep apnea. More people began to pay attention to what cause the apnea. Firstly you should know there are three origins of sleep apnea. Obstructive sleep apnea, the more common form that occurs when throat muscles relax. Central sleep apnea, which occurs when your brain doesn't send proper signals to the muscles that control breathing. Complex sleep apnea syndrome, also known as treatment-emergent central sleep apnea, which occurs when someone has both obstructive sleep apnea and central sleep apnea. The following data show the severity of obstructive sleep apnea. *Data from Article (PDF Available) in Journal of the Saudi Heart Association 179(4) · March 2015 with 214 Reads DOI: 10.1016/j.jsha.2015.03.004 For individuals, should to think about how to reduce the occurrence of sleep apnea syndrome. Here are some effective ways to find the sources of sleep apnea. 1)Smoking Smoking can increase the possibility of inflammation and fluid retention in the upper airway.Smokers are more likely to get sleep apnea than those who do not smoke. 2)Aging The Elderly and middle-aged have a higher risk of OSA.If you occurs sleep disorder at that age, please check your body in time. 3)Heart Diseases Snoring may lead to cardiopathy, such as pulmonary heart disease. When the body is in a chronic intermittent hypoxia and acidosis state for a long time, which actually affects the heart.Sleep O2 which is an easy-to-wear product helps you record heart rate and blood oxygen during sleep, effectively helps you understand the quality of sleep to judge health. 4)Neck obesity People with thicker necks might have narrower airways.Obesity patients with neck fat deposition can lead to upper respiratory obstruction in varying degrees. 5)Alcohol and Sedative These substances make muscles in your throat relax, which can worsen obstructive sleep apnea. How to treat sleep apnea? 1)CPAP Continuous positive airway pressure is the preferred method for the treatment of OSA.Through providing adequate positive airway pressure to keep the respiratory tract unobstructed, symptoms can be alleviated and sleep quality can be improved. 2)Blood Oxygen and Heart Rate Monitoring For healthy people, it is a good habit to regularly check the various functions of the body. Especially for the patients with sleep disorder, the blood oxygen value during sleep is helpful to check their health status in time. 3)Weight and Diet Control For overweight patients, diet therapy and exercise are more reasonable ways to lose weight,it's best to keep your BMI within 24.On the other hand, it's better not to drink and take sedatives. Sleep,air, food and water constitute the necessities of human existence. Adequate sleep enhances immunity, improves attention and ensures physical vitality. Through correct diagnosis and active treatment, hope you can recover your health as soon as possible.

In your eyes, what is the major behavior that affects sleep? It's not staying up late after chasing a game, it's not eating too much before going to bed,it's snoring. According to the world health organization, 27 percent of people around the world suffer from sleep problem, that is, at least one in every four people.For snorers, "snoring like thunder" does not mean sleeping soundly. Research shows that snoring at night and sleepiness during the day can greatly increase the risk of three highs, heart disease and brain damage.Snoring is a common sleep phenomenon, which most guys think it is nothing weird. In fact, snoring is an important factor affecting sleep health. Sleep apnea means repeatedly suspended snoring, resulting in severe hypoxia of brain and blood, which could induce hypertension, cerebral heart disease, arrhythmia, myocardial infarction and angina pectoris. It should be noted that sudden death occurs when the duration of apnea exceeds 120 seconds. The danger of snoring 1)Face aging for female Long-term snoring causes obstruction of air and blood flow, resulting in facial skin relaxation, bad breath, irregular menstruation, easy aging and other symptoms. Looking older than the woman really is. 2)Mental weakness for female A woman who snores could make people close to her disgust and affect her wife-husband life.Female with heavy mental stress, excessive night snoring stress may lead to mental weakness during daytime work. 3)Unhealthy lifestyle for male Unhealthy habits such as alcoholism and smoking can also cause sleep apnea.Snoring causes blood hypoxia in the body, which affects multiple organs throughout the body. Insufficient blood oxygen in male sexual organ can lead to "hypoxia" of this organ, thus affecting the normal life of couples. 4)Attention Children Snoring Most snoring children have hypertrophic tonsils and malformed craniofacial structures. Owing to airway obstruction, hypoxia occurs after apnea. Snoring affects children's normal development and learning performance. If your kid snores at night and does not concentrate in class, sleepiness and memory decline. Firstly, you should go to otorhinolaryngology department to check the nasopharynx and tonsils. If the tonsils are obviously hypertrophic, then should carry out corresponding treatment. 5)Reduction of life span for the elderly The metabolism of the elderly is relatively slow, the heart and brain are prone to hypoxia than the youngsters. Snoring can exacerbate cardio-cerebral hypoxia, increase the incidence of hypertension, coronary heart disease, stroke, arrhythmia, cardiopulmonary insufficiency, heart disease, cerebral thrombosis, vascular dementia and other diseases. If old people already suffered from cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases, apnea is like "falling stone", which would make the condition "worse". What can be done to reduce snoring? 1)Light diet The final purpose of a light diet is to control weight. If you are overweight or feel inflammation in the throat, it is recommended not to eat spicy food before going to bed; snorers should not drink milk because dairy products may cause excessive laryngeal mucus, respiratory obstruction and sleep apnea. 2)Sleeping in lateral position Right side is the healthy sleeping position most people choose, mainly because it does not oppress the heart. For obese patients, hypertrophic tongue root and nasal polyps lead to snoring more easily in supine position, and lateral sleeping position is more conducive to snoring control. 3)Quit smoking and drinking After drunkenness, the nerves are paralyzed and insensitive to abnormal physical conditions. At this time, the risk factor of apnea is higher and the probability of sudden death is increased. Moreover, smoking can exacerbate respiratory inflammation and increase the risk of asphyxia. 4)Nose care Some nasal diseases may increase the risk of sleep apnea, the most common condition is when the nose blocked by heavy cold. If you have tonsillar hypertrophy and upper airway problems, you should go to the hospital as soon as possible.

Medical experts point out that people have slower heart rate within normal range can live longer. How to judge your heart rate within a reasonable value? Here comes the concept of resting heart rate. What is the low heart rate means? Medical scientists have observed the resting heart rate of 5360 healthy adults. Studies have shown that the resting heart rate of adults is 70 beats per minute, and their life span can reach 80 years (it should be noted that the interference of various diseases should be excluded). The total number of heartbeats in a person's life is about 2.5 billion to 3 billion,if the resting heart rate is about 60 times, his life span can reach 93 years. A large number of clinical studies have also confirmed that people with fast resting heart rate have a significantly increased risk of cardiovascular diseases and a high mortality rate. Simply put, if people can keep their heart rate at 60 beats per minute as often as possible, they will live longer without the interference of other diseases. Some arguments 1)Mammals: The slower the heart rate, the longer the life span Scientists already have found that small mammals, such as rats and rabbits, have a faster heart rate which reaching hundreds of times per minute, and a shorter life span of only one to three years. On the contrary, large mammals, such as whales, have a slower heart rate of about 20 beats per minute, but can live for 30 to 40 years. It has been found that a tortoise named Grapagos has a life span of 177 years, its heart beats only six times one minute and a total of 560 million beats in its lifetime. 2)Elderly male:Heart rate is effective indicator of life expectancy Some people specially studied the relationship between heart rate and life expectancy in the elderly. The participants were healthy and without cardiovascular risk factors. They were 65 to 70 years old, including 1407 males and 1134 females. The results showed that in males, a heart rate of 60 beats per second which is healthier than 80 beats per second, not only look better, for the 80-beat-person the ratio of living to 85 years old dropped by nearly half. Heart rate was an effective index for predicting longevity in males, but there was no significant difference among older females. 3)Athletes: Heart rate is actually lower than normal,life lifetime is longer. After a period of training, people's cardiopulmonary function increases and their resting heart rate decreases, even below 60 beats per minute. This phenomenon is called "Athlete's Heart". It is not only normal, but also a strong expression of myocardial function. Olympic gold medalists live loner. In a paper published in the British Medical Journal in 2012, shows that Olympic medalists live an average of 2.8 years longer than the public.The data was counted from the longevity of 15174 Olympic medalists from 1896 to 2010. How to maintain resting heart rate about 60 times per minute? 1)Exercise regularly Participating in various exercises withilelderlyn suitable intensity will slow down the resting heart rate. Although the heart rate increases during exercise, exercise strengthens the heart function and slows the resting heart rate. Resting heart rate can be 50-65 beats (the number of heartbeats in sleep can be 38-50 beats)per minute is a sign of healthy heart, and also a sign of longevity. 2)Keep healthy weight Obesity can increase the burden of the heart, and obese patients' mood changes or exercise can accelerate the heart rate. Therefore, obese people should keep fit through reasonable fitness exercises and adjust their diet. 3)No smoking and drinking Smoking and drinking can both accelerate resting heart rate, so try to quit smoking and drinking as much as possible. Heart rate is a very important physical index. People need to test and evaluate it regularly in daily life, so that they can detect and control it in time when heart rate is abnormal. Keep your exercise and emotion reasonable in life, keep your heart rate within a healthy range, and give yourself a chance to live longer.

One third of human beings’ life are spent in sleep. Sleep quality firstly affects daily study and work efficiency, and affects people's health in the long run. Most people think that adults sleep 6 to 8 hours a day means sufficient rest, easily thinking enough sleep time would ensure human health,but many people ignore the quality of sleep is the most important. It should be recognized that if you sleep poorly, getting enough sleep time can also affect your health. As time goes on,physical problems such as decreased immunity and poor memory will appear. Ready for bed,satisfying these five characteristics prove that you are in good health: First point, fall asleep in 15 minutes Fast asleep basically proves that the quality of your sleep is good and the function of your body is healthy. If it takes a long time to fall asleep before going to bed, there are many thoughts and even insomnia symptoms, which may be due to mental and physical pain of varying degree such as excessive stress, physical discomfort. Second point, sleep until the next morning Generally speaking, young people seldom get up over once at night.However,as people get older, the quality of sleep gets worse.Kidney may deteriorate with time goes by, humans wake up more often at night than ever before. If someone often gets up at night, it is recommended to eat less liquid food and exercise properly before going to bed. Third point, breathe evenly while sleeping Some people cannot breathe well when they sleep at night,almost 30 million adults in the U.S. have sleep apnea.Even breathing reduces brain hypoxia and makes brain tonic fully rested.The more evenly breathed during sleep, the better the quality of sleep. Forth point,no snoring Long-term snoring is not a trivial matter. Occasionally snoring is common,however, frequent snoring is considered as sleep apnea.Sleep apnea shortens the deep sleep time and also affect body health. Snoring may be caused by compression of the respiratory obstruction, overwork, or inappropriate sleeping posture. Snorers should treat sleep apnea positively, and severe cases must be treated by doctor. It is suggested that snorers should solve this problem through healthy diet, physical exercise and surgery. Fifth point, no dream overnight People dream when they sleep. Interestingly, if you wake up the next day and remember your dreams clearly, it has proved that your sleep quality is not good. Because only shallow sleep can remember clearly. If it's deep sleep, you can't remember your dreams the next day.

“I often dream and rarely feel immersed sleep. Does that mean poor sleep?” What?No. Frequent dream dose not mean terrible sleep state. When does the dream appear? After falling asleep, the brain also goes into a dormant state, but a small number of brain cells are still active, which is the basis of dreams. The normal sleep structure cycle of humans is divided into two phases: non-rapid eye movement sleep (NREM) and rapid eye movement sleep (REM). NREM and REM alternately appear,once called one sleep cycle, two phases of the cycle to and fro,every night one human usually can have 4 to 5 sleep cycles per night, each cycle 90 to 110 minutes. Most people's dreams occur during REM sleep. During one night, human beings experience about 5 to 6 transitions from NREM to REM. As the NREM phase gets shorter, the REM phase gradually gets longer, this situation leads to more dreams before you wake up in the morning. Does dreaming affect sleep quality? Sometimes people may find that someone said, "I brokenly dreamed dreams at night and felt like I had a bad sleep quality." This is not the case. Dreaming is a mechanism to protect sleep, an expression of desire in the subconscious mind, which is beneficial and harmless to sleep. According to the sleep cycle, people can dream up to five times a night and the time will not exceed two hours, so they can sleep peacefully every night. It can be said that it is not dreams affect the quality of sleep, physical or mental tightness actually affects the quality of sleep, physiological illnesses such as sleep apnea make people remember dreams and feel that they frequently dream. For example, people did some nightmares that make themself sad when mental stress was high during the day time,the emotion of sadness or fear make people wake up from sleep;It is difficult to fall asleep again when the negative mood around, excessive fatigue leads to the decline of sleep quality. Think day by day and dream night by night “Think at daytime dream at night” the action is due to the fact that information during the day is constantly consolidated in the cerebral cortex, forming long-term memories. If you dream about what happens during the day, it is actually related to the process of the cerebral cortex and the hippocampus helping the body to consolidate memory at night.The hippocampus mainly stores short-term memory, while long-term memory is more stored in the cerebral cortex. Simply put, daytime events which intermittently appear in dream are mostly related to memory storage in the brain. Can we not dream? Dream is indispensable physiological and psychological phenomenon of human body.The deprivation of dream is actually a forcible interruption of sleep. It will lead to a series of physiological abnormalities, such as blood pressure, pulse, body ascending temperature. At the same time, it will also cause a series of adverse psychological reactions, such as anxiety, nervousness, irritability, perceptual hallucination, memory disorder, orientation disorder and so on. In addition, dream is a way to coordinate the balance of human mental world, and it is the expression of subconscious desire, especially the regulation of people's attention, emotion and cognitive activities. Therefore, being able to dream is conducive to physical health and is one of the important factors to ensure the normal vitality of the body.
