Sleep Apnea

1 in 5 Australian adults suffer from obstructive sleep apnea (OSA).
Are you among the 1 in 5?

What is Sleep Apnea?

Sleep apnea is a harmful medical condition that causes the sufferer to stop repeatedly breathing for brief periods during sleep. These 'breathing pauses' known as 'apnea events' typically last between 10 to 20 seconds. Severe events can last well over 30 seconds, occurring hundreds of times a night.

There are three types of sleep apnea:

  • obstructive sleep apnea (OSA),
  • central sleep apnea (CSA), and
  • complex sleep apnea.

Sleep apnea affects 1 in 5 Australian adults, with approximately 80% of sufferers unaware they have a potentially dangerous medical condition. They are therefore sorely undiagnosed and sadly untreated.

Eventually, the sufferer learns to adjust their lifestyle to overcome the daytime effects of sleep apnea by eating more food or relying on caffeine or sugar to give themselves the energy needed to get through the day.

Sleep Apnea Symptoms

Sleep apnea symptoms are easily identified once the physiological effects (and how they present) are understood.

Because apnea events typically occur during sleep, it's usually the sufferers' bed partners or family members who first witness sleep apnea symptoms such as loud snoring or brief cessation of breathing without realising the inherent danger.

Some common sleep apnea symptoms include:

  • Loud snoring most nights (if not all)
  • Waking up tired
  • Excessive daytime sleepiness
  • Poor concentration (brain fog)
  • ​Weight gain (or feeling sluggish)
  • ​Multiple nighttime bathroom visits
  • ​Low libido or erectile dysfunction
  • Teeth grinding
  • ​Chronic acid reflux
  • ​Waking up choking or gasping

Untreated, sleep apnea can lead to severe health problems such as type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease and stroke.

Sleep Apnea Diagnosis

Sleep apnea diagnosis is a vital step toward effective treatment. So, it's essential to get it right. The appropriate diagnostic method for you depends on your circumstances.

Typical sleep apnea diagnosis methods include:

Simple Screening:
Simple screening methods are a good starting point when first investigating a potential OSA condition. Screening can occur during a GP appointment, conducted by phone with a reputable sleep health provider such as Sleep Clinic Services, or conveniently online using our unique, scientifically validated Sleep Apnea Risk Profile.

Multi-Channel Screening:
Multichannel screening (MCS) methods are appropriate if you are sure you may have an OSA condition. MCS can confirm the likelihood of an undiagnosed sleep apnea condition, but it does not provide adequate data necessary to diagnose sleep apnea fully. As such, this method is typically not recognised by Medicare and does not attract a Government rebate.

Sleep Study (Polysomnogram):
Only a professional sleep study can determine the presence, cause and severity of a potential sleep apnea condition, allowing for the best treatment recommendations. This approach attracts a government rebate for those who qualify.

Sleep Apnea Treatment

Your sleep apnea treatment options can vary depending on your sleep apnea diagnostic results. Whether you have a mild, moderate or severe condition dictates which treatment option will be most effective for you.

Therefore, your treatment recommendations must be provided by a qualified sleep and respiratory physician (or sleep specialist) before discussing your treatment plan with a GP or sleep-health expert.

Your treatment plan may consist of but are not limited to:

Whichever the case, compliance is essential to the successful treatment of your diagnosed sleep apnea condition. The best way to ensure that you 'stick with the plan' is to have a sleep expert monitor and guide your progress. Sleep Clinic Services can help with that too.
