Opening Your Tired Eyes to Sleep Apnoea
Sleep-disordered breathing affects about 30% of the adult population, making it as widespread as Type II diabetes or asthma. Despite this, awareness of Sleep Apnoea is low. Up to 90% of suffers remain undiagnosed and untreated.
We stock the major brands and their replacement equipment because collectively, they are committed to increasing the education and awareness of the serious health consequences of untreated sleep-disordered breathing among doctors and the general public alike in over 65 countries.
It’s time to promote the awareness and treatment of sleeping disorders such as obstructive sleep apnoea. Ms Kirsty Wade, Sleep Apnoea CPAP consultant, says that people with Obstructive Sleep Apnoea regularly stop breathing through the night. This can last for 60 seconds or more and can happen several hundred times a night. Every time your brain realises it isn’t getting enough oxygen, it alerts your body to almost wake up briefly and start breathing again voluntarily. This means that your brain will not obtain full benefit from sleep and cannot “recharge” its alertness “batteries”.
You are not likely to remember this happening but will feel extremely tired the next day. The condition affects your quality of life and puts your body through a lot of stress every night. Symptoms of Sleep Apnoea include:
- falling asleep at the wheel of the car or at the lights,
- in front of the telly or in meetings,
- waking up tired,
- suffering morning headaches,
- being grumpy,
- feeling lethargic and having little mental or physical energy.
You don’t have to snore to have Sleep Apnoea! If you think you or your patient might suffer from this serious condition, email us or phone on: (02) 9420 4959 and get all the information you need to take the next step. Don’t hesitate. “nodding off” at the wheel is a potential consequence and this alone costs hundreds of lives annually.
