About Sleep Apnoea
Do you wake up tired? Does your partner complain that you snore loudly? You may suffer from Obstructive Sleep Apnoea…
What is snoring?
Snoring occurs when the muscles at the back of your mouth relax and fall back into your throat, causing a vibration.
What is Sleep Apnoea?
Sleep Apnoea is similar to snoring but rather than the throat being partially blocked, causing a vibration, the throat is completely blocked so you can’t breathe. The brain detects the loss of oxygen and kick-starts your breathing again.
Symptoms of OSA include:
- Tiredness during the day
The unfortunate facts… Did you know?
- Snorers have a 33% increased risk of cardiac disease
- People with OSA are 4 times more likely to have a heart attack
- Nearly 50% of stroke victims have OSA
