What Is Sleep Apnea

What Is Sleep Apnea And Why Did Bappi Lahiri Die?

Sleep is a huge component of a healthy lifestyle, and there are no two ways about it. But many of us don’t realize that those 7-8 hours of bliss each day are more important than we give them
credit for!

More often than not, we engage in blatantly unhealthy sleep habits and patterns, which can be bad for our health. Do you know what is the worst part? We don’t realize it until it is too late.

Something similar happened in the case of renowned Indian singer Bappi Lahiri. Let us take a look at what happened, and why it happened.

What caused Bappi Lahiri’s death?

Bappi Lahiri passed away in his sleep due to Sleep Apnea, also known as OSA or Obstructive Sleep Apnea. It is one of a few lethal diseases attributed to unhealthy sleeping and lifestyle habits.

The famous singer passed away on 15th February 2022 after being unwell and hospitalised for around a month. He was discharged just before but passed away due to OSA just before midnight.

All about OSA

And before you start clicking away to Google it, hold on and check out the symptoms, causes, and preventive measures here.

OSA happens due to blockage of the upper air passage in the throat, which leads to repeated start and stoppage of breathing while you are asleep. It is a highly neglected medical issue, with 4.4% to 13.7% of the Indian population reportedly suffering from OSA.

Here are the most pertinent symptoms associated with OSA:

  • Snoring
  • Breath interruption
  • Sleepiness during daytime
  • Headaches
  • Lack of concentration
  • Night sweats
  • Restlessness while sleeping
  • Sudden episodes of waking up during sleep

What to take care of?

This is where sleep accessories play an instrumental role. Experts always suggest a complete check of sleeping postures and sleep accessories such as mattresses and pillows.

Choosing the right pillow and mattress is highly critical. Why?

Because these support the body into taking the right sleep posture, ensuring proper blood flow. These help the body relax, ensuring that the airways are relaxed and don’t get blocked.

How can the right mattress help you?

Your mattress is your best shield against sleep apnea, as that is what will help you with the right position and posture to help avoid such issues. One solution is adjustable mattresses, that have an adjustable base.

Magniflex’s MagniSmartech Mattress is designed to help you get the right posture with the help of advanced technologies like anti-snoring. The mattress can adjust its positioning to help relieve any body pressure while sleeping, helping balance body weight.

This also takes off any pressure from the nasal passage, preventing snoring and sleep apnea.

Another great option is the MagniStretch, which is an innovative product designed to help with blood flow improvement. It helps by supporting the spine, taking off any unbalanced weight, and correcting your posture during sleep. This helps the body relax, and helps prevent nasal passage from being blocked.

Another important factor is your pillow. We understand that the pillow is highly critical to supporting your neck and head. Head posture is highly important to breathing in sleep, and an incorrect posture can lead to sleep apnea without warnings.

Which is why Magniflex has created ergonomic pillows that ensure the best posture you can get, taking care of your head and neck, and ensuring that your breathing passage stays clear of any obstructions through the night!
