IS SNORING AN EMBARRASMENT WHEN YOU TRAVEL? It was recently estimated that over 1.2 million Australians
experience breathing problems during sleep, indicative of a large and
under-recognised health problem. Some 40% of Australian adults snore
(50% or more if you are male and over 45). Although snoring is often
joked about, the noise can cause difficulties in domestic relationships
and elsewhere such as during trips away with friends.
Snoring itself is considered a social problem rather than a significant
medical problem; however if combined with daytime tiredness, snoring
may indicate the presence of a serious underlying medical condition
called Obstructive Sleep Apnoea. Snoring is related to partial airway
obstruction during sleep whilst Sleep Apnoea indicates total airway
obstruction during sleep.
Sleep Apnoea can have a huge impact on overall
health and quality of life leading to excessive sleepiness, lack of
energy, difficulty with memory, headaches and reduced libido. Sleep
Apnoea is also associated with a greater risk of motor vehicle and workplace
accidents, high blood pressure, heart disease and depression.
