What is Sleep Apnoea?
Sleep apnoea is when a person stops their breathing for prolonged periods or breathes insufficiently during sleep. Left untreated, it can result in interrupted sleep, fatigue, a lack of focus during the day, and, in more severe cases it leads to high blood pressure, depression, and, up to 5x increased chance of strokes and heart disease.
While snoring can often be overlooked, it also can lead to similar problems, as well as sleep apnoea itself. Studies have shown that snoring can thicken the arteries that take blood to your brain, increasing the likelihood of vascular disease. Rather than being a mere annoyance, snoring be a sign of more serious health problems. Fortunately, it is easy to treat at our sleep apnoea clinic in Melbourne.
