About Snoring, sleep related driving accidents in Malayalam.
Snoring and Sleep apnea is a disorder that causes excessive daytime sleepiness. Falling asleep while driving most often occurs during driving on empty roads, long distance drives and causes traffic accidents.
In sleep apnea the throat temporarily closes during sleep causing the snorer to wake violently owing to a lack of oxygen. It is a condition that is more common in overweight people. It causes extreme fatigue because the continual awaking of the sufferer results in many hours of sleep being lost.Those on sleep debt fall asleep at the wheels and cause fatal accidents.
Crashes resulting from drowsy driving are easy to deduce as they leave no brake marks.
We often feel tired when driving yet just shrug off the feeling and plough on â€“ which is not only obtuse and thoughtless, but also potentially fatal. It causes more road deaths than alcohol.
There is a need for more awareness of this condition in public, medical community and Traffic department.
