Sleep Apnoea

If you are suffering from Sleep Apnoea your airways become blocked while you are sleeping and can remain blocked from just seconds to up to a minute.

The brain will register the lack of breathing or the drop in oxygen levels and send a wakeup call. This pattern can happen hundreds of times a night and the sufferer will wake in the morning feeling unrested causing poor concentration and fatigue.

Symptoms of Sleep Apnoea include, snoring, daytime sleepiness, poor concentration and mood changes.

You can access a free sleep consultation with your UFS Pharmacist at either our Bridge Mall or Sturt Street Pharmacies. They can advise you if you are a candidate for a home based sleep test.

Your UFS Pharmacist can also help with selecting an appropriate mask and CPAP machine should you require them.
