Sleep panic attacks typically take one of two forms, both of which can be very frightening. In the first type, a person wakes up feeling like he or she is about to have a panic attack, or is already in the middle of one. The person’s heart will be beating very fast, and he or she may feel confused, disoriented, anxious, and disconnected from reality.
The other type happens when a person begins to consciously experience a panic attack while he or she is still asleep. This may have similar symptoms to a waking panic attack, or it may be accompanied by other symptoms like tooth grinding, head pain, and a feeling of pressure in the ears. In most cases, the person may not be aware of being asleep during the event, or may feel that he or she is struggling to wake up.
• Generally speaking, this disorder is treatable with a combination of self-care and medication. Types Sleep panic attacks typically take one of two forms, both of which can be very frightening.
• By slowly breathing in and out, a person may be able to relax his body and mind enough to sleep through the night. In the event that a sleep panic attack does occur during the night, the sufferer should try to remain as calm as possible.
The foremost degenerative process is age and can be defined as a reduction in circulating stem cells. Since EECP has been shown to increase the level of circulating stem cells, it is likely to slow the effects of aging. By keeping the blood flowing to all organs oxygen and nutrients delivered to the cells, , which helps “keeps them alive”.
EECP offers not only therapeutic benefits, but amazing potential to prevent or at least slow the onset of many of the diseases that are so prevalent in modern-day living, including aging. With aging this micro-circulation gradually closes down slowing the flow of blood, oxygen and nutrients to our cells. Without sufficient oxygen and nutrients cells gradually become less efficient and die.
We have over 60,000 miles of blood vessels in our body, which pulsate with our heartbeat an average of 100,000 times a day. The blood and cardiovascular system are an ongoing miracle bringing life to our body. Take care of them!
In medicine, a Holter monitor (occasionally ambulatory electrocardiography device) is a portable device for continuously monitoring various electrical activity of the cardiovascular system for at least 24 hours (often for two weeks at a time). The Holter’s most common use is for monitoring heart activity (electrocardiography or ECG), but it can also be used for monitoring brain activity (electroencephalography or EEG) or arterial pressure. Its extended recording period is sometimes useful for observingoccasional cardiac arrhythmia or epileptic events which would be difficult to identify in a shorter period of time. For patients having more transient symptoms, a cardiac event monitor which can be worn for a month or more can be used.
When used for the heart, much like standard electrocardiography the Holter monitor records electrical signals from the heart via a series of electrodes attached to the chest. Electrodes are placed over bones to minimize artifacts from muscular activity. The number and position of electrodes varies by model, but most Holter monitors employ between three and eight. These electrodes are connected to a small piece of equipment that is attached to the patient’s belt or hung around the neck, and is responsible for keeping a log of the heart’s electrical activity throughout the recording period. Older devices used reel to reel tapes or a standard C90 or C120 audio cassette and ran at a 1.7mm or 2mm/second speed to record the data. Once a recording was made, it could be played back and analyzed at 60x speed so 24 hours of recording could be analyzed in 24 minutes. More modern units record onto digital flash memory devices. The data is uploaded into a computer which then automatically analyzes the input, counting ECG complexes, calculating summary statistics such as average heart rate, minimum and maximum heart rate, and finding candidate areas in the recording worthy of further study by the technician or the Doctor. -While wearing the device, avoid:
Continue your normal activities while wearing the monitor. You may be asked to exercise while being monitored if your symptoms have occurred in the past while you were exercising.
When your Doctor suggest a Holter monitor for your medical problem, you already know that is an accurate exam, so, let us play with the phrase: “Don’t hold your Holter’s examination”.
