Not getting a good night’s sleep? Obstructive Sleep Apnoea is when the soft tissue in the throat cuts off air supply while sleeping. It is a very common sleep disorder and can affect people of any age.
We can screen for sleep apnoea at a cost of $100. A referral is required from your doctor. The test involves wearing a device with two bands around your chest and abdomen and sleeping at home
The most effective treatment for Obstructive Sleep Apnoea is Continuous Positive Airway Pressure therapy (CPAP). CPAP provides light air pressure that holds open the airway via the use of a small mask. In almost all cases CPAP gives patients uninterrupted sleep throughout the entire night.
We use CPAP equipment from Phillip Respironics, Fisher & Paykel, and ResMed.
