Are you looking to STOP Snoring? Have you heard about Sleep Apnoea but are unsure about what it is and how it relates to snoring?
Similarly, has that special someone told you that they saw you STOP Breathing? Do you get the sensation that you CHOKE or GASP for AIR while sleeping?
Read on, because the Sleep Specialists at Priceline Pharmacy West Brunswick may be able to help.
Obstructuve Sleep Apnoea (OSA) is the cessation of breathing during sleep for a duration of 10 seconds or longer. It occurs when the upper airway repeatedly collapses during sleep, causing cessation of breathing (apnoea).
Furthermore, as your airway collapses, air is unable to flow freely to and from your lungs, therefore causing symptoms such as SNORING and SLEEP APNOEA or PAUSES in BREATHING.
PERSISTENT Snoring may be a symptom of Obstructive Sleep Apnoea-OSA. As a result your probably
Are feeling tired during the day
Have restless sleep
Have poor concentration during the day
Suffer from early morning headaches
The efficient way to treat SNORING and SLEEP APNOEA
The most efficient way to treat snoring and sleep apnoea as a result of OSA is to use a Nasal CPAP (Continuous Positive Airway Pressure) and Mask which provides air pressure in the airways to keep them open and prevent them from collapsing.
But WAIT! Aren’t those CPAP Machines and Masks larger than Darth Vadar’s head and make more noise than a 6 stroke lawn mower? NOT ANYMORE! Technology has improved greatly and many CPAP Machines are super quiet and the MASKS very comfortable and non intrusive. Have a look at some examples below!
WILL YOUR SNORING SYMPHONIES END WITH A SLEEP APNOEA MACHINE? MAYBE…!
Certainly not ALL Snoring is a result of Obstructive Sleep Apnoea, and that’s why Priceline Pharmacy West Brunswick offers an OVERNIGHT Diagnostic Sleep Test to confirm the diagnosis of Obstructive Sleep Apnoea.
The Sleep Test is conducted from the comfort of your own home, by using a Medical Device called the Alice Night One - we like to call her ALICE! Alice measures your nasal airflow, body position, respiratory effort, oxygen levels, heart rate, snoring and the amount of times you stop breathing.
