Sleep apnea can be a serious problem that prevents you from sleeping soundly and getting the rest your body needs. Shopping for a natural or organic mattress is always a good start when you are looking to improve the quality of your sleep, but the sleep experts at Natural Sleep Mattress of Atlanta will tell you that when it comes to sleep apnea, however, it might not be a question of what is the best mattress but rather what is the best bed or foundation.
The best luxury bed in Atlanta is the one that can help you get a deep, restful night’s sleep. If you have sleep apnea, research has shown that elevating the head of your bed can provide significant relief of your symptoms. The best and easiest way to elevate your head is with an adjustable base.
Easing the Symptoms of Obstructive Sleep Apnea
A study was done to test what raising the head-of-bed elevation (HOBE) might have the severity of obstructive sleep apnea as well as on the quality of sleep provided. As the researchers explained, “Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is a common disorder characterized by repetitive partial or complete obstruction of the upper airway during sleep. The pathophysiology of OSA is complex and is caused by the interplay of both anatomical and non-anatomical factors including neuromuscular responsiveness, ventilatory instability, and arousal threshold. Continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) is the most common treatment for OSA. However, CPAP adherence is not ideal and may be even worse among subjects with milder forms of OSA.”
The study concluded that, “Mild HOBE significantly improves OSA severity without interfering in sleep architecture and therefore is a simple alternative treatment to ameliorate OSA.”
