The Strangest Sleep Disorders Ever!

March 28th, 2011

For many people, a good night’s sleep is a given. However, for those suffering from a sleep disorder, a restful night’s rest is anything but the norm. While everyone is likely to experience insomnia at one point in their life, some people have to deal with strange sleep disorders and can only hope for a full night of sleep.

Narcolepsy

Narcolepsy is probably one of the most well known sleep disorders. Individuals with narcolepsy experience excessive daytime sleepiness and can fall asleep instantly and without warning. This includes falling asleep at the most inopportune and even downright dangerous times like driving, walking, working and having a conversation.

Nocturnal Eating Syndrome

Imagine waking up in the morning, walking into your kitchen, and seeing a half-eaten peanut butter and jelly sandwich that wasn’t there the night before. If you live alone, you may wonder if a burglar snuck into your house for a late night snack. However, the answer to this mystery may be a little closer to home – you suffer from nocturnal eating syndrome (NES). Individuals with NES are known to get up out of bed, eat or drink something and return to bed without ever waking.

Fatal Familial Insomnia

Insomnia is irritating but fatal familial insomnia (FFI) is downright deadly. This ultra-rare genetic condition has only been identified in a handful of families worldwide. FFI usually strikes during middle age and the results are devastating. Individuals with FFI have the complete inability to sleep. The body and mind slowly degenerate and eventually a patient with FFI will slip into a coma and die.

Sleep Paralysis

Individuals that suffer from sleep paralysis experience partial or complete paralysis right before falling asleep or immediately upon waking from sleep. This inability to move can cause quite a bit of panic in patients that have yet to be officially diagnosed. Imagine waking up in the morning and not being able to move your major muscles. That is scary and most people wouldn’t think, “Hey, this is a sleep disorder, everything will be OK.” Instead, thoughts would turn to worst-case scenarios like a brain tumor. The good news is that prescription medicine can eliminate this strange sleep disorder.

Terrifying Hypnagogic Hallucinations

If sleep paralysis wasn’t already scary enough, some patients also experience terrifying hypnagogic hallucinations that coincide with their paralysis. These hallucinations typically include an absolutely frightful character that would petrify even the most hardcore horror movie fan. Not everyone that experiences sleep paralysis suffers from these hallucinations and terrifying hypnagogic hallucinations can occur without accompanying paralysis.

Brugada Syndrome

Sleep paralysis and terrifying hypnagogic hallucinations are scary but not life threatening. Brugada Syndrome, on the other hand, is deadly. Brugada Syndrome, also known as sudden unexplained nocturnal death syndrome (SUNDS), typically strikes young adults. A seemingly healthy individual goes to sleep and has an unexpected and fatal heart attack, never to wake again. Much is still unknown about this disease but it is more prevalent in people of Asian descent.

Courteous and Professional Customer Service When Ordering Our Latex Topper

October 1st, 2010
latex topper

I am very happy with our new latex mattress topper from Rocky Mountain Mattress, excellent product at an excellent price. I do not often buy from web sites however the prompt, courteous and professional customer service I received from Rocky Mountain Mattress won me over. I have spoken with Dave several times and am so pleased with the product and service that I am ordering a second topper for a different bed. My husband and I purchased a new Simmons mattress about a year ago and it was so firm that I would wake up stiff and sore on a regular basis.

My husband gets very hot at night and he was always waking up in a sweat. The latex topper was the answer to both our problems. Since the first nights sleep, I have not been stiff or sore in the morning and my husband has not gotten overly warm. We call our new topper “The Cloud” as we feel like we are sleeping on one. We highly recommend the Rocky Mountain Mattress product and are extremely pleased with the outstanding customer service we have received. Buy from this company, you will not regret it!

What You Need to Know About Ordering a Custom Safari Airstream Mattress

August 13th, 2010

If you own a Safari Airstream or any other type of RV for that matter, you may find that the space you have for a bed in your RV is much different than in a home. Of course, this space is going to be smaller than most bedrooms in a non mobile home, which means that you are going to have to get creative when it comes to furnishing your bedroom in your RV. You can purchase many different sizes of dressers, TVs, counter space and so on, but when it comes to your bed, you are going to have to have custom Airstream mattress and bed made especially for your space.

The first thing that you need to know is what type of mattress you want to purchase. It doesn’t matter if you prefer a memory foam, a latex, or a traditional foam mattress, RMM can make a custom mattress made with any of these materials.

In addition to choosing the type of bed you want, you also need to know the dimensions of the mattress space. You can easily take the measurements yourself, just remember to do it twice to ensure you have the right measurements. To get the proper measurement, simply measure from one side of the bed to the other inside of the bed frame where the mattress is going to be sitting. You will do this for both the width and the height. You will also need to stipulate the height of the mattress. A custom mattress doesn’t have to cost you an arm and a leg. You will find that the prices are comparable to a conventional size mattress in fact our prices are based off of the standard size mattress we have to work from plus a $60.00 “custom fee” for the customization work. So, the price will vary depending on the height and makeup of the mattress. To determine a price, please choose a mattress style and height from among our standard lineup of beds –

Custom Fleetwood RV Mattress

August 5th, 2010

If you own a Fleetwood RV, then you are in an RV that screams innovations, customer services, and a warranty that cannot be beat. From the luxurious insides to the fuel efficiency, the Fleetwood RV is a luxury RV. The spacious sleeping space is also a big seller, but if you need a new mattress, it takes a little more work than walking into your local Fleetwood dealer .

Since RV’s are custom, an RV bed is custom as well. You will need to take measurements to ensure you are getting the correct sized mattress. The first measurement is from rail to rail, or the width of the mattress. Measure all the way to the wall where the bed will rest.

Measurement number 2 is the length. The length is from the top of the mattress, where your head lies, all the way to the bottom. Make sure that you start at the very top, where the mattress is up to the wall.

Finally, you will need to measure the depth of the mattress. This is to satisfy any height restrictions and to fit appropriately in any area that exists for the mattress RV bed. If your RV mattress is even more custom, it may be shaped a little differently. Many RV mattresses have a rounded corner, or perhaps several. You can draw your mattress on a template and send it in to our warehouse by email, fax, or mail. Make sure to make the template to scale so that the mattress can be made exactly to specifications.

Whether driving a special edition Quest Fleetwood, or one of the several in the American Coach Fleetwood line we can custom make a high quality memory foam or all natural latex mattress for your vehicle.

Replacing Your Coachmen RV Mattress

August 3rd, 2010

If you own a Coachmen RV and are in need of a new RV bed, it is not as simple as running to the mattress store to get one. Coachmen, like many other RV’s, requires a custom RV mattress. Custom RV mattresses can be ordered from RMM, we just need to know the dimensions. To measure a Coachmen RV mattress simply:

  • Measure from side bar to side bar of the mattress stand, or ledges that the mattress holds on too.
  • Measure from the bottom of the mattress to the top to get a proper depth.
  • Measure from the headboard to the foot of the bed.
Coachman RV

After taking the measurements, draw what is known as a top down drawing. This is a drawing where it looks like you are looking down onto the mattress. Make sure that you not only note the dimensions that you took earlier, but also to add if there are any curved corners and any special cutouts for window placements or other concerns.

Once you give these measurements, we will have several other things to discuss. The type of foam (memory foam or latex), the firmness/softness desired of your mattress, and the cover options.

So take accurate measurements, in fact measure twice, and then call Dave at 801-360-9009 to discuss replacing your Coachmen RV mattress.

How To Buy A Custom Casita RV Mattress

July 31st, 2010

Casita RV’s are a great, efficient, cost effective RV. They are both durable and liightweight. One big benefit of Casita RVs is that they have spacious interiors with plenty of room for a toilet, shower, and a great custom mattress. However, if you are looking for a new mattress for your Casita RV, chances are that you will not find one at a store ready to buy. You will need to measure and order a custom RV mattress from a mattress company.

So, grab a tape measure and get ready to collect information on ordering your custom RV mattress.

Measure from the side rail to the other side rail. This will become the width of your mattress. For the purposes of an RV, you will need to keep the size of your bed the same as the rails are built into the RV. Then measure from the head to the foot, making sure that you measure where the mattress sits and not where the top of the mattress would be. Finally, measure the lowest point that the mattress will sit on to the top of the frame so that the mattress will not be made deeper than the RV can handle. If you have a mattress that is going to be an unusual shape other than square or rectangular, you will need to take additional measurements and sketch them out so that the mattress manufacturer will know what to do.

When you order your custom RV mattress, take into account that RV beds may have different shaped edges. For instance, many RV mattresses have rounded edges, or what is called a cutoff corner. In this case, you will have to sketch or choose the mattress of your choice. Most have one corner that is rounded. Even among Casita trailers there will be differences as there are 4 models ranging from the 13 foot Patriot to the Liberty Deluxe that has choices in 16 and 17 feet. There are also different size options in the Freedom Deluxe and the Spirit Deluxe. Make sure to not only know how thick of a custom RV mattress your bed can take, but know how thick of a mattress you would like. Choices range from 6″ to 14″ with or without memory foam.

Call Dave at 801-360-9009 to speak with our RV mattress specialist.
