Healthline says that Some people have thought of sleep and death as siblings for as long as people have tried to compare the two. Some people say that it's the easiest way to do it. This happens to people of all ages, but it affects the elderly more than other age groups because they have more health problems overall.
Today, I'm going to talk about why people die while they sleep. This is not meant to scare you, but to teach you how to live as long and as healthy a life as possible. Please sit down and read this whole message if you haven't already.
What is it that makes people die when they sleep?
This could be caused by any of the following medical problems:
Carbon monoxide poisoning is the first type.
Carbon monoxide, or CO, is a colorless, odorless gas that can hurt a person's body if they breathe in enough of it. Carbon monoxide might not be noticed until a detector is put in place. It's in the exhaust from your car, stove, dryer, fireplace, water heater, grill, and other appliances. The main reason people die in cars is because they sleep with the air conditioner on. When the blood carries dangerous things like carbon monoxide instead of oxygen, the situation quickly becomes life-threatening and can even be fatal.
Two, he had a heart attack.
Sudden Cardiac Arrest is a medical emergency that happens when the heart stops beating suddenly and unexpectedly (SCA). When a coronary artery or another blood vessel that supplies muscle tissue gets blocked, the muscle tissue it supplies can be hurt or even die. Myocardial infarctions can cause mild loss of function all the way up to complete blockage of blood flow and death.
Stroke, Grade 3
A blood clot that forms in the heart's blood vessels and then moves to the brain can cause a stroke. High blood pressure, or hypertension, is another thing that could put you at risk. Damage to the brainstem from a stroke can make it hard to breathe, open your eyes, move your muscles, and be fully aware. If you have a stroke while you're sleeping, it could kill you.
Deaths during sleep can also be caused by a number of other health problems. For example, a seizure caused by epilepsy could be fatal. Also, sudden unexpected death in epilepsy (SUDEP), which has the potential to kill people with epilepsy, is a disorder that hasn't been fully understood.
5. Obstruction of Sleep Apnea (OSA)
Most people have this type of sleep apnea. Many people die while they sleep, and obstructive apnea is one of the main reasons why. The name includes the word "obstructive" because it causes breathing to stop and start many times while sleeping and also blocks the airway while sleeping. Because of this, OSA is a big health problem that needs to be fixed.
Having this information early on helps keep people from dying in strange ways.
