Sleep Apnoea

Man with sleep apnoea

The most common sleep problem that we come across is Sleep Apnoea and it is estimated that at least 9% of women and 24% of men are affected by sleep apnoea. There are a variety of risk factors which will increase your likelihood of being affected.

The three main types of Sleep Apnoea are:

Obstructive Sleep Apnoea (OSA), this is the most common which occurs when the throat muscles relax, causing the air passage to collapse and obstruct breathing during sleep.

Central Sleep Apnoea, which happens when the brain sends incorrect signals to the muscles that control breathing.

Complex Sleep Apnoea Syndrome, this occurs when someone has both Obstructive Sleep Apnoea and Central Sleep Apnoea, also known as Treatment-Emergent Central Sleep Apnoea.
