Nightmare

Wiki info

Scientific research shows that nightmares may have many causes. In a study focusing on children, researchers were able to conclude that nightmares directly correlate with the stress in children’s lives. Children who experienced the death of a family member or a close friend or know someone with a chronic illness have more frequent nightmares than those who are only faced with stress from school or stress from social aspects of daily life. A study researching the causes of nightmares focuses on patients who have sleep apnea. The study was conducted to determine whether or not nightmares may be caused by sleep apnea, or being unable to breathe. In the nineteenth century, authors believed that nightmares were caused by not having enough oxygen, therefore it was believed that those with sleep apnea had more frequent nightmares than those without. The results actually showed that healthy people have more nightmares than the sleep apnea patients. Another study supports the hypothesis. In this study, 48 patients (aged 20–85 yrs) with obstructive airways disease (OAD), including 21 with and 27 without asthma, were compared with 149 sex- and age-matched controls without respiratory disease. OAD Ss with asthma reported approximately 3 times as many nightmares as controls or OAD Ss without asthma. The evolutionary purpose of nightmares then could be a mechanism to awaken a person who is in danger.

Recurrent nightmares may require medical help, as they can interfere with sleeping patterns and cause insomnia .16u team -team needs C and OF - email Heather Immesberger - [email protected]
