✦ We all know how important a good night’s sleep is and how critical the right levels of rest are to our overall health and day-to-day functionality
We also know how not getting a good night of shut eye can leave us feeling tired, unfocused, lethargic, irritated and frustrated.
It’s something that sufferers of sleep apnoea, unfortunately, know all too well. Sleep apnoea is one of the most common sleep disorders on the planet, with the latest estimates stating that close to a billion people globally suffer from the condition.
So what exactly is sleep apnoea and should one be concerned if they suspect they may be suffering from it?
Explained simply, sleep apnoea is a potentially serious sleep disorder that causes frequent pauses in breathing during sleep which prevents the body from getting enough oxygen. If you are known to snore loudly, frequently gasp during sleep or just typically feel in a dreamlike state while awake due to poor quality of sleep then the chances are you suffer from sleep apnoea. Children who suffer from the condition typically will exhibit overly active behaviour while awake and may have issues with concentration and paying attention.
There are two types of sleep apnoea
Central Sleep Apnoea (CSA) is when the person’s brain fails to send the correct signals to the muscles that control breathing, and the more common Obstructive Sleep Apnoea (OSA), where the person’s throat muscles relax and thus the airway is narrowed which blocks the flow of air into the lungs. Several factors can impact the latter condition such as obesity, large tonsils, changes in hormone levels, lack of exercise, an over consumption of alcohol and smoking.
If left untreated, sleep apnoea can lead to far more potentially serious health issues such as high blood pressure, heart disease, stroke and the risk of developing insulin resistance and type 2 diabetes. If you believe you are suffering from the condition it is strongly advised to consult a doctor or a qualified expert who can run a detailed professional sleep test to determine the situation.
One such team of experts can be found at Sleep Apnoea Clinic, who bring exceptional service and compassionate care to those seeking restorative sleep. Their top quality and highly personalised services are designed to target each individual’s needs in order to accurately diagnose and effectively treat obstructive sleep apnoea.
It's about empowering clients to achieve an overall sense of well-being and bring ease and confidence into sleep. The clinic offers two main services - home-based sleep studies and CPAP (Continuous Positive Airway Pressure) Clinic and Sales.
A home-based sleep study is conducted in the comfort of the client’s home with a Level 2 sleep study approved by Medicare and which meets the Australian Sleep Association standard.
Clients must be 18 and above, have a referral from their medical practitioner and meet pre-screening criteria. At the end of the study, clients are advised if treatment is necessary and the options available, and referred back to the Sleep Apnoea Clinic for CPAP therapy or to a sleep or respiratory specialist as required.
The full-service CPAP Clinic and Sales department offers personalised support, education and equipment for successful sleep apnoea treatment. Clients are well taken care of by highly trained and compassionate staff to help with a smooth and comfortable transition into CPAP therapy. Ongoing aftercare service and assistance are also available to ensure the best possible outcomes from the CPAP therapy.
