Treatments for Sleep Apnoea & Snoring in Sydney

What is sleep apnoea?

While snoring is relatively common for many people, it’s important to know the difference between an obstructed airway and sleep apnoea. Sleep apnoea, or obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA), is a potentially serious sleeping disorder, as it can severely affect your quality of sleep and wellbeing.

What causes this?

There are a wide variety of causes linked to sleep apnoea, but most common factors we find in individuals who are suffering from sleep apnoea have to do with being overweight, age(individuals over 40 are more susceptible), medications, gender and general lifestyle choices such as smoking or drinking.

Why is it a problem?

With sleep apnoea, your body relaxes to a degree where the muscles and tissues within your throat collapse, completely blocking your airway and causing episodes of wakefulness constantly throughout the night. This severely affects your sleep, leaving you tired and more susceptible to infection or depression.
