A study by the University of California, Berkeley showed that although a full night’s sleep can stabilize mood, a sleepless night can cause anxiety levels to rise by 30%, and deep sleep helps reduce the anxiety caused by this lack of sleep. Researchers have found that deep sleep is most likely to calm the anxious brain and readjust sleep. In this state, nerve oscillations become highly synchronized, and heart rate and blood pressure drop. Researchers believe that deep sleep restores the prefrontal mechanism of the brain that controls emotions, reduces emotional and physiological responses, and prevents the escalation of anxiety.
[The effect of taking antihypertensive drugs before going to bed or better]
Studies have shown that the best time for hypertensive patients to take antihypertensive drugs is before bed, not in the morning. This scheduling not only provides better control of blood pressure, but also significantly reduces the risk of death from cardiovascular disease and events such as heart attack or stroke. Researchers randomly selected 19,084 Spanish adults and asked them to take antihypertensive drugs in the morning or before going to bed. After an average of 6.3 years of follow-up, the results showed that compared with those taking antihypertensive drugs in the morning, those who took antihypertensive drugs at night had a 45% lower risk of dying or experiencing cardiovascular events.
[Beware of stroke if your neck is hurt]
Injury to the neck may involve the cerebral blood vessels. A new study shows that people who have had head and neck injuries have a three-fold increase in the risk of ischemic stroke. Researchers analyzed 1.3 million emergency trauma patients and found that among adults with head and neck trauma, about 48 out of every 100,000 people have different degrees of ischemic stroke. The researchers explained that one of the reasons for strokes after head and neck trauma may be that the damage to this part can easily cause the blood vessels in the brain or neck to be torn, which can induce thrombosis and eventually cause stroke. Researchers suggest that after head and neck injuries, more attention should be paid to the presence or absence of damage to the blood vessels and other subtle diseases, and more attention and maintenance should be paid to avoid involvement of cerebral blood vessels.
