Pneumonia and Sleep Apnea – A New Study Suggests Higher Chances of pneumonia in Sleep Apnea Patients

Pneumonia and Sleep Apnea – A New Study Suggests Higher Chances of pneumonia in Sleep Apnea Patients
According to research available at Canadian Medical Association Journal, sleep apnea patients are likely to have more chances of pneumonia as compared to other people, who don’t have this syndrome.
In sleep apnea, sleep is disturbed by the hindrance caused by soft tissues in the upper airway, thus stopping the supply of O2. 

Several diseases have been linked to it, such as cognitive harm and heart-related illnesses

The obstructive sleep apnea patients grew more aspiration chances.
The Taiwanese research scientists observed 34100 people for eleven years, among which 6816 were sleep apnea patients, while others were not to find out the connection between sleep apnea and pneumonia.
They discovered that 638 sleep apnea patients built up pneumonia at the rate of 9.36 percent as compared to other 2119 people with no sleep apnea at the rate of 7.77 percent.
It was further found out that people who suffered from pneumonia were aged and also were patients of other chronic diseases for example dementia, diabetes, and heart illness along with several other illnesses.

The research scientists Dr. Kun Ta Chou, Dr. Vincent Yi Fong and co-authors write from the department of chest medicine in the “Taipei Veterans General Hospital” that the research proved the higher chances of pneumonia in the sleep apnea patients.

Further, it as well verified that severe sleep apnea patients are at greater chances of acquiring pneumonia as compared to mild sleep apnea patients.

 Several other research studies have discovered the connection between pneumonia and sleep apnea; however, those were not the big one than this big group research.
The researchers advocate that the greater chances of pneumonia in sleep apnea patients could be due to elevated chances of inhaling kinds of stuff or the fluid inside the lungs.
