The old man should choose some kind of sleeping position
The posture of sleep is nothing more than supine position, right lateral position, left lateral position and prone position.
In the supine position, the body and bed have the largest contact area, so it is not easy to fatigue, and is conducive to blood circulation of the limbs and brain.
However, some elderly people, especially those who are more obese, are prone to snoring in the supine position. Severe snoring refers to the presence of loud snoring and nasal snoring, which may affect the rest of others and may affect the exchange of gas in the lungs.Hypoxemia; in the right lateral position, because the outlet of the stomach is below, it causes the discharge of the contents of the stomach, but the right lateral position changes to the right limb is oppressed, affecting blood reflux and suffering from soreness and numbness;In the anterior position, there is almost no pressure on the limbs during sleep, the gastric emptying slows down, and the pressure on the heart in the chest is maximal, which is not conducive to blood transfusion of the heart; and the prone position can affect the breathing and affect the blood circulation of the facial skin.It makes the skin of the skin easy to age.
Therefore, the elderly should not sleep in the left lateral position and prone position, preferably in the supine position and the right lateral position.
The elderly who are prone to snoring and the elderly with gastritis, indigestion and sagging stomach are best to choose the right lateral position.
