Snoring And Sleep Apnoea Treatment
This is a serious and growing problem amongst our population. Did you know that people who suffer from Obstructive Sleep Apnoea (OSA) have a 7 fold higher risk of death and heart disease? In Australia, it is estimated that 25% of men and 9% of women suffer from OSA. This condition can severely impact not only the quality of life but is life-threatening. Many people complain of being tired during the day, not able to concentrate, and not able to work to the best of their abilities. It is not only adults that suffer from sleep apnoea or snoring, but a growing number of kids as well are diagnosed with sleep apnoea. Treatments vary from having breathing apparatus applied whilst sleeping, to mouth guard like devices that aid in opening airways so that patients can breathe freely whilst sleeping. Treatment often involves sleep physicians where sleep studies are conducted to determine the level of sleep apnoea, and then the appropriate device manufactured to aid in reducing this problem. Do you suffer from daytime tiredness? Do you not feel refreshed after a night’s sleep?
