Snoring is a Nefarious NapStealer, Too

Snoring (14/365)

Recent studies have shown that snoring is not only bad for the person snoring, but can also cause sleep deprivation in the person who shares a bed with the snorer. That’s my interpretation of the following summary of the study:

“We have previously identified heavy snoring as an independent risk factor for carotid atherosclerosis. In order to explore the hypothesis that snoring-associated vibration of the carotid artery induces endothelial dysfunction (an established atherogenic precursor), we utilized an animal model to examine direct effects of peri-carotid tissue vibration on carotid artery endothelial function and structure.

What? Basically, the researchers took rabbits, let them fall asleep and then used snoring sounds to let the napstealing begin. Other rabbits, who weren’t exposed to snoring sounds were said to have slept better. Really? You think? And then, another brilliant statement to summarize the hypothesis of the study is:

“Features of OSA such as hypoxemia, large intra-pleural swings and blood pressure volatility were prevented. Carotid endothelial function was then examined: (1) biochemically by measurement of tissue cyclic guanosine monophosphate (cGMP) to acetylcholine (ACh) and sodium nitroprusside (SNP); and (2) functionally by monitoring vessel relaxation with acetylcholine in a myobath.

It’s a good thing you have me to explain the nefarious napstealing going on in this study, because otherwise, you would be stuck reading things like this:

“Vessel cGMP after stimulation with ACh was reduced in vibrated RCA compared with unvibrated (control) arteries in a vibration energy dose-dependent manner. Vibrated RCA also showed decreased vasorelaxation to ACh compared with control arteries. Notably, after addition of SNP (nitric oxide donor), cGMP levels did not differ between vibrated and control arteries, thereby isolating vibration-induced dysfunction to the endothelium alone. This dysfunction occurred in the presence of a morphologically intact endothelium without increased apoptosis.

So, to sum up, if you don’t want to develop carotid atherosclerosis… (sounds bad, doesn’t it) …you need to stop sleeping with someone whos snores or fix their snoring problem. The genius behind this whole study is that you really needed a government-funded study to tell you that sleeping with someone who snores is a nefarious napstealer that can adversely affect the quality of your sleep, right? Or they could have just asked my wife.

    Thanks for the welcome back, and for following my adventure! Global warming is VERY REAL. The has actually undergone several “global warming” periods during its existence. Most of America was covered in glaciers before they melted due to climate change. Among the controversial issues are whether humans and their technologies have accelerated the next warming period, what the direct effects of fossil fuel usage is, and can we develop alternate clean energy sources? Have a great summer!

    Wait so is the take home message here, that if you are on IR adderall, switch to XR? I am currently taking 20mg and have a love hate relationship. The drug has changed my life dramatically, but often times I have a hard time determining appropriate times to take them and will often suffer for it (no sleep til early morning if taken to late). Im curious about asking my doc for xr, but not sure.. My biggest issue is sleep deprivation and somehow I see a XR pill fixing that.

  9. Matt seems to be the Dr. Mengele of the Animal Rights movement. One of the key facts that AR members like to ignore because it fit their arguement is that humans are used in testing. used in testing AFTER being tested in animal models. I think of anything of hand that went straight from an animal model into general use by the population. Since they believe there is no difference in the value of a human or that of an animal I see why they volunteer for more clinical trials. They would be saving the lives of those animals they to represent.

    a a paper that came out of the Vilano Group and Research Institute, Cardiovascular Foundation of Colombia on this subject. They looked at olive, soybean, and palm oil intake, they have a similar acute detrimental affect over the endothelial function in healthy young subjects.

    Endothelial cells make nitric oxide, which dilates your blood vessels and If this happen LDL (bad cholesterol) be eliminated from your body. Whether the olive oil was taken at room temperature, heated, or fully heated to frying, there was the same damage to the endothelial cells.

    Hope helpful.

  19. I found this on Flickr. Apparently there is a spot in Nova Scotia where “feral” rabbits roam the grounds and interact with the human visitors. As anyone who knows rabbits can see, the bunny in this picture is not a “feral” rabbit but probably instead a former house rabbit that someone released into the wild, which is actually a horrible thing to do. They are difficult to see here, but there are about four or five other rabbits in the back of the picture and they all seem healthy, so I assume the bunnies are treated well and taken care of, even if they are considered wild. This picture is from 2006 so I know the current situation there, but I would love to go and see this.

  21. I recommend any extracted oils, whether raw, cold-pressed, extra-virgin, or harvested by raw extra-virgins (OK, I made that last bit up). Whenever you extract oils from the nutritional matrix they were packaged in by good Mother Nature, you change the way they behave in the human body. fascinating about oil vs nuts is that nuts improve endothelial function ( the ability of the cells lining your blood vessels to produce nitric oxide) while oils impair endothelial function. So I recommend nuts and seeds, as well as avocadoes, to provide the fats that are necessary for our well-being.

    Authors: Richard J. Parker, Sascha P. Quanz (ETH Zurich, Switzerland) We present N-body simulations of young substructured star clusters undergoing various dynamical evolutionary scenarios and examine the direct effects of interactions in the cluster on planetary systems. We model clusters initially in cool collapse, in virial equilibrium and expanding, and place a 1 Jupiter-mass planet at either 5au or 30au from their host stars, with zero eccentricity. We find that after 10Myr 10% of planets initially orbiting at 30au have been liberated from their parent star and form a population of free-floating planets. A small number of these planets are captured by other stars. A 10% have their orbital eccentricity significantly altered. The change in eccentricity is often accompanied by a change in orbital inclination which may lead to additional dynamical in planetary systems. The fraction of liberated and disrupted planetary systems is highest for subvirial clusters,…

Middle cerebral flow velocity (MCAV; transcranial Doppler) and blood pressure were recorded from 14 healthy subjects. Low-pass-filtered pressure-flow responses (<0.15 Hz) during transient (intravenous phenylephrine) and hypotension (intravenous sodium nitroprusside) were fitted to a two-element Windkessel model. The Windkessel model was found to provide a superior goodness of fit to the MCAV responses during both and hypotension (R2 0.89 ± 0.03 and 0.85 ± 0.05, respectively), with a...

And forget that although the stated goal of WFD is to help people find employment, a government funded study during the Howard years discovered that it actually made it harder.

    The true purpose of pushing people onto WFD, of course, is that for statistical purposes, those people are not counted as unemployed.

    I also thought it was interesting that the research stated that the CSC model is not applicable to all mouse or human tumors. Since the CSC model does not even apply to all human tumors I know if using a different animal model would be better. Maybe it would be helpful to look at how the tumors that the CSC model does apply to are different from the tumors it apply to and if a difference in the signaling pathways in the cells in these tumors. These findings may then be able to be applied to mouse and human tumors.

You may wish to elaborate in another post about the health consequences of early menstruation (before age 12), namely that it is associated with an elevation in [lifetime] risk for breast cancer, apparently a result of greater exposure to estrogen. Of course, it is one of several such concerns and it is the constellation of risk factors that must be taken into account. Early menstruation also is associated with increased risk of other chronic diseases, including cardiovascular disease and diabetes. It is not clear whether early menarche is an independent risk factor or whether the risk is tied to higher levels of accompanying obesity. In any event, earlier menstruation in the population is cause for concern.

Storage lesions may promote inflammation and thrombophilia when transfused. In trauma patients, RBC transfusion was an independent risk factor for deep vein thrombosis (DVT), specifically RBC units stored > 21 days or when transfused 5 or more units. The objective of this study was to determine if RBC transfusions or RBC storage age predict incident DVT in medical or surgical intensive care unit (ICU) patients. Methods: Using a database which prospectively enrolled 261 patients over 1 year with an ICU stay of at least 3 days, we analyzed DVT and RBC transfusions using Cox hazards regression. Transfusions were analyzed with 4 thresholds, and storage age using 3 thresholds. DVTs were identified by twice weekly proximal leg ultrasounds.

While many have been made in agricultural practice, the mechanism for resistance to high temperature remains elusive. Nitric oxide (NO) is considered as a signaling molecule involved in regulation of diverse physiological processes and stress responses in animals and plants. However, the role of NO in regulating fungal, edible fungi, response to abiotic stresses, is unknown. The present study demonstrated that NO could effectively alleviate oxidative damage induced by heat stress in mycelia ofPleurotus eryngiivar.tuoliensis.
