Sleep heavy (deep) breathing effect - Night sleep, morning hours, insomnia, dyspnea, shortness of breath, hyperventilation, asthma, heart disease, diabetes, and other diseases.
Why do early morning hours have highest mortality rates and chances of attacks?
Dr. Buteyko, the author of the Buteyko breathing technique, studied this sleep heavy breathing effect in detail. Let us consider the mechanism.
Why do most attacks and acute episodes take place during night sleep? What is going on with our breathing during these times? Deep breathing reduces carbon dioxide levels in the blood and this causes constriction of blood vessels and reduced oxygen release in tissues (the suppressed Bohr effect).
As a result, we get less oxygen in cells of all vital organs. This causes a cascade of pathological effects that commonly include shortness of breath http://www.e-breathing.com/symptoms/shortness-of-breath/
and other symptoms, such as cough, blocked nose, insomnia, etc..
