Waking up after siesta and getting cardiovascular injuries
Huang Dingli, a doctor of organic chemistry from Columbia University in the United States, said, “Siesta will increase the mortality of the elderly.
According to a survey report from the Hadassah University Hospital in Israel, he questioned the habit of the Chinese people-the siesta he most agrees with-and believed that siesta could not be supplemented, but instead could increase the probability of “injury” of the cardiovascular and cerebrovascular, thus becoming the “life-stealing life” of the elderly.Killer. ”
Dr. Huang’s research suggests that heart rate and blood pressure will decrease during sleep at night; heart rate and blood pressure will recover when waking up in the morning.
At this time, there will be intensive cardiovascular and cerebrovascular activity in the body, which may increase the risks facing the cardiovascular and cerebrovascular.
The siesta causes the pressure change of the cardiovascular and cerebrovascular just like the sleep at night. Therefore, it is considered that one more siesta is equivalent to another change from low to high state. Day after day, it is likely to cause cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases.
For some of Dr. Huang, doctors think it makes sense, but the elderly need not be too serious.
With regard to siesta, East and West have always been at odds.
The Chinese believe that siesta replenishes energy, is good for health, and improves work efficiency.
But the West has always believed that sleeping during the day is a waste of energy and not advisable.
But before that, foreign scientists have also demonstrated through experiments that midday sleep can slow people’s metabolism and reduce energy consumption, thereby avoiding premature aging, just like sleeping in the frozen state can make people “grow”.
Prove that humans should have a break at noon.
In fact, the need for a siesta is closely related to each individual’s physical fitness, sleep status, age and the presence or absence of diseases.
Sleep less at night and the quality is poor, you should use the nap to recharge your body at noon.
Old people with poor sleep quality can also give their brains a real rest by taking a nap.
And Dr. Huang’s point is not unreasonable.
To alleviate the damage to blood vessels caused by changes in cardio-cerebral vascular pressure before and after bedtime, experts suggest: 1.
Don’t get up immediately after waking up, lie down in bed for half a minute; 2.
Sit from the bed for half a minute after sitting up; 3.
Expect half a minute by the bed and then get out of bed.
This gradual activity can make the various organs of the body adapt to changes, reduce the pressure on the blood vessels that suddenly get out of bed, avoid dangers such as falling, and is conducive to the stability of heart rhythm.
