Number one on our list is heart attacks.
Researchers have found that a large number of people pass on in their sleep due to heart attacks.
Arrhythmias follow at a close second.
Arrhythmias, a common cause of death while sleeping, is associated with the heart's electrical activity. Cardiac blocks that disrupt the electrical pattern cause heart failure and death.
Strokes are another common sign.
Strokes frequently occur during sleep, which can result in sudden death. The heart significantly influences other systems that rely on its blood circulation capacity.
Congestive heart failure also plays a role in sudden death.
Congestive heart failure can also eventually result in total heart failure. Left-sided heart failure can rapidly affect the right side of the heart, which results in fluid accumulation in the lungs, shortness of breath, mainly while lying down, and peripheral edema in the feet and legs.
Let’s explore Pulmonary disease.
Pulmonary disease is often long-lasting, and its effects may show slowly. Progression of this disease can result in death.
Sleep apnea is common in sleep deaths.
One of the worst widespread causes, among the many different types of sleep apnea, is obstructive sleep apnea.
Carbon Monoxide Poisoning the silent killer.
Carbon monoxide is an odorless, colorless gas typically produced by fuel combustion in automobiles, fireplaces, gas stoves, barbecues, and furnaces. Carbon monoxide poisoning can occur in poorly ventilated, enclosed spaces.
Last but not least, on our list is epilepsy.
Epilepsy considerably increases the risk of dying while sleeping. The Epilepsy Foundation claims that more than 1 in 1,000 epileptics die suddenly each year.
