Source link In recent years, scientists have made significant advances in understanding sleep and its associated disorders. Sleep disorder research news is constantly evolving as researchers investigate new treatments, technologies and theories. Here, we look at some of the latest sleep disorder research news from ScienceDaily.

Recent findings involving narcolepsy are producing impressive results. A team of scientists from the University of Birmingham have found that a particular gene variant could allow for the correct diagnosis of narcolepsy in patients who previously lacked a clear diagnosis. Those who were affected were believed to show symptoms similar to those of narcolepsy but no genetic explanation was evident. Thanks to this latest research, the “narcolepsy puzzle” is becoming much easier to solve.

In other news, massage therapy is being looked at as a way to help combat sleep apnea. Experts at the Winona State University in Minnesota recently conducted an experiment involving massage therapy and sleep apnea. The results showed that those who underwent massage therapy had a reduction in their apnea-related symptoms. These findings suggest that massage therapy could be an effective short-term solution for those suffering from this debilitating condition.

Finally, the use of technology is making it easier to diagnose sleep disorders. Scientists at the University of Adelaide have developed a new way to use machine-learning to detect breathing abnormalities during sleep. The machine-learning algorithm was better than experts at detecting obstructive sleep apnea, providing a potential new tool for detecting this condition.

It is clear that sleep disorder research news is constantly evolving. Scientists are making great strides in improving our understanding of sleep-related diseases and developing new treatments, technologies and diagnostics.

Overall, it appears that there is a lot of exciting new sleep-related research that could help millions of people who suffer from sleep-related disorders. As these research efforts continue to expand, we can look forward to new and improved treatments and diagnostics that can help improve the quality of life for those affected.
