Sleep Apnea

It is estimated that over one million Australians have Obstructive Sleep Apnea. Sleep Apnea is when air stops flowing to your lungs for 10 seconds or longer while you are sleeping. Sensing you have stopped breathing, a control centre in your brain triggers you to wake up just enough to take a breath. Then you fall back to sleep and the cycle begins again. 

In some people this can happen over 30 times every hour even though you may not remember waking up.  As you can imagine, constantly being triggered back into breathing, hour after hour, night after night, can put a strain on your body.  You may feel very tired day after day yet not realise that you’ve been waking up so many times at night as a result of having sleep apnea.

Quality of life for these patients is poor. 

A person who has Sleep Apnoea may experience the following symptoms: 

  • Snoring
  • Choking, shortness of breath and/or gasping while you are asleep
  • Day time tiredness
  • Poor concentration
  • Morning Headaches
  • Depressed Mood
  • Night Sweats
  • Weight Gain
  • Lack of Energy
  • Forgetfulness
  • Sexual Dysfunction Frequent Urination at Night

Left untreated, sleep apnea can have serious and life-shortening consequences: 

  • High blood pressure
  • Heart disease
  • Stroke
  • Automobile accidents caused by falling asleep at the wheel
  • Diabetes
  • Depression
  • And other ailments.

CPAP therapy is considered by clinicians as the “GOLD” standard treatment for Obstructive Sleep Apnea.
