Sleep Apnoea


Sleep apnoea is a sleeping disorder that occurs when your airway collapses in the middle of sleep. It stops the air from travelling freely to and from your lungs, disturbing your sleep in the process. If left untreated sleep apnoea can increase the long term consequences and management of high blood pressure, heart attack, Type 2 diabetes, heart failure, abnormal heart rhythm, stroke and chronic pain.
