Researchers at the first Canadian International Sleep Symposium held today at McGill University re- ported a close connection between various stages of sleep and specific mcdirat situations such as early- morning births, heart attacks and indigestion. The first signs ol coronaries, and ulcers, and bronchial asthma frerjLiently occur nt rrifihl. Through tho use of (.lie electroencephalogram, in- vestigators have found sleep occurs in main stages or rapid eye movement (HEM) and quiet or non-rapid eye movement Dreams take place during ITEM stages and, contrary [o popular opinion, may last as long us it would lake the sleeper to carry out the equivalent action in a state of wakeful- ness. Dr. Anthony Kales, chairman of the psychiatry dc-1 parlment at Pennsylvania Stale University, said seven years of sleep research indicate it is common (or the first signs of a catastrophic illness lo appear during sleep. For example, ho said, a frequent occurrence among patients coronary artery disease is nocturnal an- gina. Of 39 cases flight pain, 32 were associated with REM Heart rale up Sensors showed that shortly after I he patient en- tered REM sleep, the heart rate increased, electro- cardiogram abnormalities appeared and a few min- utes l.'ilcr the patient awoke lo report chest pain. Palicnls with duodenal ulcers also are often awakened with pain that may be relieved by milk or antacids. Dr. Kales said it been established that ulcer patients secrete from three to 20 limes as much gastric iicid during HIP night as normal patients. The increased secretion usually occurs during RI-'M sleep. Of nil sleep dislurbunccs, however, insomnia ia .most prevalent. Psychological testing of 20 insomniacs, Dr. Kales reported, showed an extraordinarily high percentage of pathological disturbances for a group not defined as psychiatric patients. noticeable were patterns of depression, oliH'ssive-trornpulsivc! features and schizo- phrenic: I rends.
