Some say it is a smooth way to pass. This occurrence happens to both the young’s and old but the older people are affected by this the more because they suffer from one health challenge to another.
However, I will be sharing with you reasons why people die in their sleep. This is not supposed to install fear in you in any way but rather, it is meant for enlightenment purposes and it will advise you on what to do if you want to live long.
Why Do People Die In Their Sleep?
Carbon Monoxide Poisoning
Carbon monoxide with chemical formula CO, is a colourless and odourless gas that can cause a lot of harm to the human body if too much of it is breathed into the lungs.
And unless you are using a carbon monoxide detector, you may not notice its presence.
It can be found in the fumes from “I pass my neighbor generators”, running cars, gas ranges, furnaces, grills, stoves, water heaters, fireplace, dryer, and so on.
It is the most reason why people die while sleeping in their car with the AC on or in their bed room while generator fumes enter their room.
This is becomes very dangerous especially when the blood that flows in the body carries too much toxic like Carbon monoxide than oxygen and it can lead to shock or ultimately death.
This condition is attributed to the heart and it is a medical condition called Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA).
This attacks occur when a blood vessel (or coronary artery) supplying the muscle tissue becomes obstructed and the tissue supplied is damaged or dies.
These myocardial infarctions may range from minor events that slightly compromise function to catastrophic blockages that lead to the heart’s complete failure as a pump.
An irregular heart rhythm may lead to a clot that travels to the brain and causes a stroke.
Also, high blood pressure, or hypertension, may increase the risk. If a stroke impacts the brainstem, breathing, eye-opening, muscle control, and general consciousness may be compromised.
Strokes may be fatal and if this occurs in sleep, it can cause death.
It is possible for death in sleep to occur due to a few other disorders, including some sleep conditions.
For instance, seizures may be fatal. Also, there is a condition known as Sudden Death in Epilepsy (SUDEP) that is not fully understood, but it can also cause
Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA)
This is the most common of all types of sleep apnea. Obstructive Sleep Apnea is on the common reason why many people die in their sleep.
It causes one’s breathing to stop and start repeatedly while sleeping. It also causes blockage in the airway during sleep and that’s why there is the term “Obstructive” in its name.
Therefore, OSA is a serious medical condition you should look out for when such issue occurs.
I have heard people who proclaimed that “village people” had a hand in the death of someone during his or her sleep.
They believed that the death of that person doesn’t just happen like that especially if the person is young.
Well, I personally can’t conclude on that, and that is the reason why I drop this question below for you to drop your comment and share.
Why do people die in their sleep? Is it caused by “village people” or ill health?
