THE SNORING CLINIC
It was recently estimated that over 1.2 million Australians experience breathing problems during sleep, indicative of a large and under-recognised health problem. Some 40% of Australian adults snore (50% or more if you are male and over 45). Although snoring is often joked about, the noise can cause difficulties in domestic relationships and elsewhere such as during trips away with friends.
Snoring itself is considered a social problem rather than a significant medical problem; however, if combined with daytime tiredness, snoring may indicate the presence of a serious underlying medical condition called Obstructive Sleep Apnoea. Snoring is related to partial airway obstruction during sleep whilst Sleep Apnoea indicates total airway obstruction during sleep.
Sleep Apnoea can have a huge impact on overall health and quality of life leading to excessive sleepiness, lack of energy, difficulty with memory, headaches and reduced libido.
Sleep Apnoea is also associated with a greater risk of motor vehicle and workplace accidents, high blood pressure, heart disease and depression.
