What is Sleep Apnoea?

Obstructive sleep apnoea is present when the airway at the back of the mouth partly or completely obstructs during sleep. Your breathing is reduced or may stop altogether. The oxygen level then falls and you wake up briefly to start breathing again. These episodes may happen many times during a night. Fortunately, good treatments are available to help patients lead a normal life.

CPAP consists of a snugly fitted mask that seals the nose, mouth or both. It is connected to an electronically driven pump that delivers a flow of air through a length of tubing. Supplying air to the upper airway in this manner creates a positive airway pressure. This positive pressure provides a splint in the airway to prevent it from collapsing during sleep.

Before starting CPAP therapy, you need to have a sleep study to confirm the presence of sleep apnoea. We recommend National Sleep Diagnostics. Please click the button below for more information.
