Upper Airway Respiratory Syndrome

Upper Airway Respiratory Syndrome


The  quality of sleep will get disrupted with snoring and resistance through the airway. This disorder is called  Upper Airway Respiratory Syndrome(UARS).

The quality of the sleep will be less for the patients affected with UARS. It  can be due  to various reasons like,

  • Difficulty in maintaining sleep(insomnia)
  • Non-refreshing sleep
  • Excessive daytime sleepiness

The patients with UARS will not coming to know about their awakening due to snoring. All UARS patients may not be having audible snoring. During inhalation or inspiration, a few  patients will have to take more respiratory effort. Since there is an anatomical limitation from an enlarged tongue base to the airway. Instead of snoring, heavy breathing will be heard as a result of it. There is a greater risk of developing obstructive sleep apnea for patients with UARS.

UARS represents a movement of illness crossing over the move from “benign snoring” to obstructive sleep apnea.  Patients essentially don’t go to bed ordinary one night, just to stir the following morning with obstructive rest apnea. Rather, they ordinarily experience regular movement after some time or taking after increased weight  from “benign snoring”, to UARS, lastly to obstructive sleep  apnea. This movement might take years or decades to happen.

UARS can only be diagnosed by an examination in a sleep laboratory.
