What is Obstructive Sleep Apnoea?

Obstructive Sleep Apnoea (OSA) occurs when the airway at the back of the mouth collapses repeatedly, partly or completely blocking off the upper airway. The disturbances likely only occur when asleep, making it difficult to identify. OSA is associated with increased risk of high blood pressure, heart attack and stroke. OSA can be treated, and when done so successfully, can improve quality of life.
 
 Symptoms include;

  • Snoring loudly
  • Tossing and turning during sleep
  • Stopping breathing during sleep, and waking gasping and choking
  • Waking feeling unrefreshed and tired
  • Feeling fatigued, difficulty staying awake especially in the afternoon

Frequently asked questions about our sleep services.



  • What causes Obstructive Sleep Apnoea?

    Being overweight is one of the most common causes of OSA as it can cause a narrowing of the throat due to excess fatty tissue. Some people are born with a narrow throat or have a facial structure which leads to narrowing. Other contributing factors include alcohol (especially in the evening as this relaxes the throat muscles and hampers the brain’s reaction to sleep disordered breathing), certain illnesses, large tonsils, medications (such as sleeping tablets and sedatives), as well as nasal congestion and obstruction.


  • How can Obstructive Sleep Apnoea be treated?

    For people with a mild level of OSA, losing weight, decreasing the amount of alcohol consumed in the evening, or adjusting the sleeping position may be all that is needed. However, for those with moderate or severe OSA more active treatment is often required. One of the most common forms of treatment for moderate to severe OSA is Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) therapy.
