Sleep Apnea

Sleep apnea is an ongoing medical condition that affects approximately 18 million Americans.  It is characterized by disturbed sleep patterns due to interrupted breathing periods through the night.  The periods last between 20-30 seconds each and can occur 25-40 times per night.  The person who is affected moves from periods of deep sleep to the edge of consciousness as the breathing pauses or becomes very shallow.

The condition is random and many only occur a few nights a week.  It is often reported that after a sleep apnea attack the person makes a loud choking sound or a snort after returning to normal sleeping and breathing patterns.

The end result of this series of events is the person gets poor quality of sleep.  This can lead to them to being tired all day, not able to concentrate, and irritable. This is not a normal condition that will alleviate itself with time.  Sleep Apnea is dangerous and can lead to serious health complications and in some cases may even be fatal.

In many cases the diagnosis of sleep apnea is never made due to the fact that the person affected often has no memory of the event which takes place over the course of the night.  Most people learn about their condition from their bed partner or roommates and talk to their doctor from that point.

It has been noted that about half of those afflicted with sleep Apnea are overweight and that the problem does appear to be prevalent in men more than women.  It is known that about 18 million Americans have been diagnosed or are suspected to have sleep apnea but no global study has yet to be completed.  It is estimated that the amount of sufferers worldwide is much, much greater.

Race appears to also be a factor is the risk of developing sleep apnea.  African Americans, Hispanics and Pacific Islanders/Hawaiians, and Native Alaskans seem to be more prone to the condition than those of Asian and Caucasian racial groups.

There are mainly two types of sleep apnea but the most common type is obstructive sleep apnea, which is a condition characterized by the collapsing or closing of the airway during sleep subsequently leading to a reduction in breath entering the lungs.  A symptom of this condition is loud snoring which is cause by air trying to squeeze past the blockage.  This type of sleep apnea is most often manifested by overweight people, but it is possible that it can affect anyone.

Another form is Central Sleep Apnea, which is much less common and is caused by a malfunction of the brain.  Signals which are sent to the mouth to control muscles of the airway are misinterpreted and the normal breathing sequence gets out of whack.

CPAP equipment therapy is the most popular available treatment and have shown to help improve overall health and quality if sleep. Other options besides CPAP equipment therapy exist, such as dental devices or surgery.  It is a good idea for you to have a talk with your doctor to see what is best for your particular situation. SoClean CPAP will be a good choice for sure.

Four Wheelers For Kids - A Summer Of Fun!

These quad bikes are designed to travel on grass, dirt, gravel or pavement so are suitable for any outing and the kids just love having their own quad bikes, just like the adult versions.

On this page we will look at the three most popular models available.

The first one is the Power Wheels Kawasaki Kfx by Fisher Price, and is for the smaller child with a manufacturer's recommended age of 3 -5 years.

The second model, pictured above, is the Peg Perego Polaris Outlaw and is for the middle age group from 3 - 7 years.

The last one is the Razor Dirt Quad and is recommended for older children of 8 years and up, though many reviewers have bought it for rather younger kids!

All these models are very highly reviewed on by parents and grandparents who have taken great delight in the pleasure that the young ones have got from their gifts!

Scroll on down to read more about them.....

The Power Wheels Kawasaki KFX
An Amazing Four Wheeler Ride On From Fisher Price.
The Power Wheels Kawasaki KFX is a first quad bike for the little ones and with over 150 five and four star reviews on is one of the most popular four wheelers for kids.

The manufacturer's recommended age for this four wheeler is 3 - 5 years with a weight capacity of 65 pounds.

It has two speeds of 2.5 and 5 miles per hour with a lock out of the higher speed for safety while your child is just learning to control the bike. Unlike some four wheelers it also has a reverse gear.

It has a twist grip throttle and power lock braking system, and can tackle wet grass, gravel, mud and ruts with ease, making it a real ATV experience.

It comes with a 12 volt battery and battery charger, and if little girls prefer something a little more feminine, it also comes in pink!

The best thing you can do is to head on over to and read some of the 5 star reviews of this great toy from delighted purchasers whose children LOVE this great four wheeler.

Peg Perego Polaris Outlaw
Another Great Looking Four Wheeler.

The Peg Perego Polaris Outlaw is another great kids ATV and as recommended by the manufacturer has a slightly greater age and weight range of 3-7 years and 85 pounds.

This model also has many reviews from happy parents and grandparents who have thrilled their children with this four wheeler as a birthday or Christmas gift.

Like the Kawasaki KFX it has two speeds of 2.5 and 5 miles per hour and a reverse gear, but in this case it has a Smart Pedal accelerator with automatic braking as opposed to the twist grip throttle.

Again it has the facility to lock out the second gear to restrict the speed until your child is completely used to controlling the bike.

Large rugged wheels provide traction on grass, dirt, gravel and pavement, and a 12 volt battery and battery charge are included.

The Peg Perego Polaris Outlaw has a 2-yr. extended manufacturer's warranty.

For children who like to ride for hours at a time, a good idea is to buy a second battery to have on charge, so that their happy riding time is not marred by the battery running out of juice!

Razor Dirt Quad
One For The Older Ones...

The Razor Dirt Quad is n ATV for the older ones who have graduated to something a little more powerful!

The manufacturer's recommended age is from 8 years and up with a weight limit of 120 pounds, but many reviewers seem to have bought this four wheeler for children a little bit younger.

The Razor Dirt Quad has a twist grip throttle which can be used to obtain speeds of up to 8 - 10 miles per hour, and the chain driven motor gives a quiet, yet powerful ride.

The brake is operated by a hand lever on the left-hand side.

One of the great things about this four wheeler is that it has rubber tires unlike most kids atvs, which means that it has much better grip, and runs much more smoothly and much quieter than those with plastic wheels.

A disadvantage is that it has no reverse, but the upside of this is that it teaches your child quickly to learn how to turn properly and not to get into a situation where reverse is needed. However, if that does happen, reviewers comment that the child can pull it backwards, although it is quite heavy to do so!

The Razor Dirt Bike runs on two 12 volt batteries, and has a cushioned seat and mudflaps.

There is a video further down this page showing a young boy enjoying his Razor dirt quad.

This great kids ATV has over 100 five and four star reviews from delighted purchasers on and I encourage you to head on over to read some of them...

An Overview of Ultrasound Transducers

When we talk of ultrasound machines, ultrasound transducer stands out as one of the most vital component of the general imaging mechanism as without this component images cannot be obtained in any other way. Coming to their mechanism of working, a high frequency sound wave is sent inside the patient’s body through a probe which has a set of sensors attached to its body. Now, the sensors senses the movements and different physical specifications of the body parts and sends back the obtained data to the transducer which converts the obtained data to electrical data in human readable form in the form of images which in turn is processed and displayed through the monitor. So, it is pretty obvious that in absence of the transducer, the much required data conversion from sound to image form cannot be achieved anyway which makes their role imminent and vital in this context. There are several different types and varieties of the ultrasound transducers, with the differences being based on the part of the body to be examined. To elaborate on this subject, the shapes and sizes are commonly governed by the body part to be treated. For example, for abdominal diagnosis, frequencies falling within the range of 2MHz to 7.5MHz is used whereas for viewing thyroid glands, frequencies of around 10MHz is used whereas in case of detecting pregnancies, a relatively lesser frequency is used as higher frequencies have been proved to have left a negative effect on both the mother and the baby. Depending on the purpose of use, transducers are designed in different shapes and specifications for subsequent forms of treatments and healings. Some of the best quality products come with dual or even greater number of specifications but operating them is never going to be that easy, especially for the new and the non technical users
