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, returning the equipment the next day. Results are returned in 2 weeks.
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.
