What is Sleep Apnea?

Sleep apnoea is a sleep disorder characterised with interrupted breathing patterns. People who are diagnosed with sleep apnoea stop breathing repeatedly during their sleep, which may result in the lack of oxygen in the brain and the rest of the body.

There are two types of sleep apnoea:

Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA)

Ooccurs when an airway is blocked by the soft tissue at the back of the throat.

Central Sleep Apnea (CSA)

Occurs when the brain fails to send signals to the muscles responsible for breathing.

Snoring is a major red flag for OSA. However other contributing factors may range from weight gain, your chronological age, a family history of snoring and OSA to  anatomic abnormalities.

There is an unsettling link between Obstructive Sleep Apnea and several other conditions. Such as cardiovascular concerns, heart disease, atrial fibrillation, impotency, depression and stroke. So your snoring could be doing more than just annoying yourself or your partner!

What Treatment do you provide for Sleep Apnea?

MDSA (Medical Dental Sleep Appliance) is an Australian-designed anti–snoring device recommended for patients who are diagnosed with mild to moderate obstructive sleep apnoea. This device holds the jaw and tongue forward, preventing the throat from collapsing during the sleep cycle.

If you fail to treat sleep apnoea, then you are at a greater risk of suffering from high blood pressure, heart failure, heart attack and stroke, as well as diabetes, headaches, and depression. Ultimately, you may notice daytime fatigue, general tiredness and poor performance in your daily activities.
