Sleep apnoea is a common condition which affects 25% of Australians. Most of these people go undiagnosed. Sleep apnoea occurs when a person’s airway is partly or completely blocked during asleep. Sufferers wake up gasping for air many times every hour. This causes severe broken sleep, with sufferers only being asleep for very small periods every night.
Sleep is essential for your health and wellbeing. Ongoing sleep deficiency contributes to a number of health issues that could impact your overall physical health.
Typical symptoms of sleep apnoea include:
- Waking up gasping for breath
- Severe day time sleepiness
- Daytime lack of concentration and energy, including while driving
If left untreated, obstructive sleep apnoea may also increase a person’s risk of long term health conditions such as:
- Type 2 diabetes
- Heart attack
- Heart failure
- High blood pressure
We conduct a 10 minute Sleep Health Screening to discover your personalised Sleep Score. We use this to decide whether an overnight at-home sleep test to check for sleep apnoea is right for you. Your results are analysed by specialist sleep Physicians who make recommendations based on your results.
