SCVTV Sports | Ethan Yoo, Valencia High School
This week’s Student Athlete of the Week, presented by SCVTV & Wendy’s of Santa Clarita, is Ethan Yoo of Valencia High School.
I’ve taken a great PHYSIOLOGY course and found that when we sleep, the uvula *thing that hangs in the back of our thtoras can block the air passage way when we breathe. In addition, with poor dieting or with aging we have more fatty tissue in the back our throat near that air way. When we prop our heads back, or lay back, this excess fat/flesh will sit and block the airway with the *things that hangs in the back of our throat. There really is nothing to be fearful about. My friends husband had sleep apnea all is life. and right really had no good rest without knowing. UNTIL he had the procedure done, he is well rested and realized he never had rested well in his entire life.ONCE you get it done, the benefits will outway the downfalls. THE downfall? you may get food or liquid down the wrong pipe every so often. THE purpose of the *thing hanging in the back our thoat is to preven food/liquid going down the air pipe. IF you go through the procedure they’ll mostlikely take it out. If so, you’ll get some food down the air pipe if you eat in a rush. *****some people do not get rid of sleep apnea. some do. it’s not guaranteed. but, consider the benefits. If it does work? hey, you’ll get a lot more rest.
