Young children who snore could be at greater risk of becoming hyperactive than those who sleep quietly, researchers reported in the journal Sleep. The study strengthens earlier conclusions linking sleep disorders and hyperactivity and also seems to confirm that it is the snoring that comes first. "Sleep problems in both children and adults are often undiagnosed, even though they can have a major impact on health, behavior and quality of life," said Dr.

Two hundred snorers are testing a "cure" that a Swedish company in Kopparberg developed for the affliction, it was reported here Wednesday. The snorers place a small electrical device under their pillow that starts vibrating at a certain sound level, thus causing the sleeper to turn over automatically. Swedish television said that those testing the device have reported overwhelming success.

Look at it as Bean-O for the nose. A New York company is marketing an over-the-counter homeopathic nose spray that promises to help snorers make it through the night in relative silence. Called Y-Snore, the compound is drawn from wild yams and ginger, which herbal-medicine guides recommend for bilious colic, among other aggravations of the lower digestive tract. What's good for the intestines is apparently good for the nose. Eastern Europe Inc.

Istarted flying small airplanes when I was 18, and after I got out of the service, I used my GI Bill money to adorn my pilot's license with a Lear Jet rating. Most of the training consisted of takeoffs and landings at Bakersfield; we never climbed above 10,000 feet or went very fast. But at the end of the course we made a real flight -- to Las Vegas and back -- and I finally got to climb to something like a jet's cruising altitude and experience something like a jet's speed. The cockpit of a Lear Jet -- these were old Model 24s, the jet equivalent of a '55 Chevy -- was a tight place, with a steeply slanted windshield grazing your forehead, a tall instrument panel in front of you and a console projecting back between the seats.

A man driving on an interstate highway was attacked by a mouse that apparently had been sleeping in the heater vent of his car and got too hot. As a result, Walter Miller's car ended up in a ditch near Billings on Monday night, and the mouse ended up dead. Patrolman Dallas Adkins said Miller, 59, of Silesia, was driving home on Interstate 90 when the mouse sprang from the dashboard, landed on his shirt and scampered up inside his coat.

When other toddlers fall into blissfully silent slumber, does your wee one begin a noisy night of grunting, gasping and sawing? If so, brace yourself, because the terrible twos may just be the beginning of your child's trying behavior, says a new study. The research found that children who snore persistently at 2 and 3 years of age were rated by their caregivers as more difficult, with behavior that tended toward hyperactive, inattentive, irritable and depressed. Other studies have found that as persistent snorers get older, those behavioral difficulties persist.
