Heart trouble has always been a big deal and up until recently we had little to no resources available to deal with the various pains and problems associated with heart trouble. Now we have plenty of medications and treatments available but still nothing that actually reconditions the heart after a major problem. The good news is that now we have what appears to be a very real solution to this problem.
This week a group of researchers came out with a recovery regiment that may make a very significant impact on the lives of those affected by heart troubles. After six months of CPAP sleep apnea treatment the heart shows a significant recovery rate in a number of ways which is great news. This is still a somewhat unexplained phenomenon but it appears that there is a very direct link; sleep apnea treatment is directly affected heart recovery after any sort of heart related trouble.
The reasons behind it are not completely known, but doctors believe it has something to do with the significantly increased breathing and oxygen flow during the night. Sleep apnea is a very real problem for millions of people and it appears that treating it may also help reduce or eliminate heart disease triggers as well. If this is confirmed to be true it will be a very major breakthrough for the medical industry; a follow up study is already underway so there should be more definitive answers soon.
