Do you or your partner snore?

A touchy subject for some, but snoring can be a real issue and one of the main symptoms of the more serious condition sleep apnoea. A massive 5% of all people have sleep apnoea and of these, 8 out of 10 people are undiagnosed. Evidence suggests that if left untreated, sleep apnoea can lead to high blood pressure, heart disease, depression, migraines and stroke. It is also thought that untreated sleep apnoea may cut 10-15 years off your life. This is disappointing, especially for something that is readily diagnosable and treatable. Gone are the days when you needed to do a full night’s sleep in a hospital setting to test for sleep apnoea.  You can now do a study in your own bed with a small manageable device. Come and see us and have a chat about an at home sleep study; we have very short waiting times and you will get the results back in less than 10 days. Our friendly staff have been trained to help you along your journey with sleep apnoea and are committed to helping you find the solution that best suits you.

For those of you who have already been diagnosed and have a CPAP machine, we are having a free clean and check day on the 4th February.  This involves a clean of your mask and machine as well as a pressure check and a tubing and filter check.  We can also download data from your Philips machine to check on your progress.  Please give us a call to make a booking for this service.

We are also having a mask sale for the month of February with a massive 50% off selected masks and 20% off our standard Philips masks, so if you’re in need of an update this is the time to come in.  We are also happy to order Resmed and Fisher and Paykal masks. 

For more information on sleep apnoea, from diagnoses, trials, treatments and supplies, visit Community Care Chemist Geelong West. We can help you manage any existing symptoms, and make sure your current sleep apnoea solutions are working correctly and benefiting you in the best way possible.
