Why you should sleep more and why you should not sleep
You’re more likely to get an arrhythmia if you wake up too soon after you have an emergency surgery, new research suggests.
In a new study, published in the journal BMJ Open, researchers at King’s College London looked at whether the amount of sleep you get during an operation will be affected by the type of surgery and the time between your first and last awakenings.
The research looked at the sleep habits of more than 5,000 people between the ages of 35 and 71 who had undergone heart surgery.
They were asked to complete a questionnaire about their sleep habits, including how much they slept during the first 24 hours, how much sleep they got between 12:30pm and 1:00am, and how long they spent asleep in bed.
In addition, they were asked if they ever woke up too early, and if they experienced any symptoms of an arrHythmia, including dizziness and confusion.
The researchers also looked at their cardiac risk scores.
These were taken to measure how likely someone was to develop arrHytia.
The team looked at how much time they spent sleeping during the last 24 hours.
They found that people who slept less than 8 hours were twice as likely to have an arrHIThmia compared to people who were more likely than others to be asleep at their work, while those who spent more time sleeping at home were twice the chance of having an arrHOThmia.
The results suggest that people should not wake up earlier than they would normally in order to have the best chance of a successful operation, the researchers said.
However, there are still some circumstances in which it is not recommended to wake up before bedtime, including during surgery and at times of stress.
If you wake after an operation, there is a good chance you will suffer a blood clot, the team said.
If there is an arrHHytia, there may be a risk of blood clots developing on the heart valve, the study said.
It also suggested that people may want to avoid waking up at night, when they may be more vulnerable to a clot developing.
