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.
Snoring and Sleep Apnoea
Symptoms of Sleep Apnoea include, snoring, daytime sleepiness, poor concentration and mood changes.
Your UFS Pharmacist can also help with selecting an appropriate mask and CPAP machine should you require them.
The most effective treatment for sleep apnoea is a mask worn at night that prevents the throat from collapsing by transmitting increased air pressure to the collapsible segment of the throat. This is called ‘nasal continuous positive airway pressure’ (CPAP). The key to this treatment is finding a mask and machine that match the needs of a given individual with sleep apnoea.
