Is Obstructive Sleep Apnoea impacting your sleep?

If you've been tossing and turning, snoring loudly and experiencing poor sleep, you may suffer from undiagnosed sleep apnoea.

 

Obstructive sleep apnoea is the most common sleep disorder in Australia and worldwide but is underdiagnosed and misunderstood1.

 

Obstructive sleep apnoea occurs when your upper airway is either partially or completely obstructed while you sleep. Air can't get into your lungs, and you stop breathing.

 

This is called an 'apnoea' and, in severe cases, can happen hundreds of times a night and leave you exhausted once you wake up.

 

Some common symptoms of sleep apnoea include2:

 

• Excessive daytime sleepiness

• Irritability and mood changes

• Dry mouth

• Nasal congestion

• Poor quality sleep

 

Luckily, thanks to technological advancements, it's now easier than ever to learn if you have obstructive sleep apnoea and treat sleep apnoea.
