Alarm clocks are responsible for a number of disorders of the heart or circulatory system, but also for increasing the level of stress, is the conclusion of a study by a team of Japanese researchers.
Professor Chris Idzikowski of Edinburgh Sleep Center explained that in the latter part of the night, the general physiology of the body is irregular, high fluctuations in blood pressure, heart rate and breathing occur. Because the body is relatively quiet during sleep, the blood gets thicker and there is a risk of blood clots forming.
"In fact, even the act of awakening can cause problems, when the blood begins to circulate and blood pressure increases," the professor said.

Alarm clocks can raise the overall level of stress.
The sudden sound engages the body's response, increasing the level of adrenaline. If this stress persists for months on end, it can turn into chronic stress, Professor Mark Atkinson said.
