SEVEN SIMPLE QUESTIONS AS SELF ASSESSMENT FOR SLEEP APNOEA:

1. Is your snoring a problem for you or your partner or others?

2. Do you feel unrefreshed upon wakening in the morning?

3. Are you often sleepy during the day? Do you occasionally doze off or fall asleep during the day if you are not busy?

4. Has anyone heard you snort, gasp, hold your breath or stop breathing during sleep?

5. Neck size - male greater than 43cm circumference - female greater than 40cm?

6. Do you have or are you being treated for high blood pressure?

7. Are you over 45 years of age
?

If you answered yes to two or more of these questions, you may have snoring plus Obstructive Sleep Apnoea (OSA).

A firm diagnosis can only be made following an overnight sleep study called a polysomnogram (PSG). The PSG records many body functions during sleep and are done either in a hospital or at home. Although home sleep studies are usually more convenient than PSG performed in hospitals, they have historically been considered less accurate and they cannot gather as much data. However, modern technology, has now made it possible to have an accurate sleep study done in the comfort of your own home.

At DentSLEEP we can arrange this and for more information or to organise a diagnostic sleep study, please contact Dr. Delcanho at DentSLEEP on
