Breathing related sleep disorders are very common and cause severe tiredness which can have a significant impact on a person's quality of life. Untreated obstructive sleep apnoea can have a significant impact on other aspects of patients’ health and co-morbidities. A specialised test, known as a Polysomnogram, is used to diagnose sleep disorders.
Establishing the diagnosis and recommending treatment is only one part of patient care. Our doctors take a holistic approach towards the treatment of associated problems occurring in patients with sleep apnoea, such as treatment resistant hypertension, arrhythmias and pulmonary hypertension.
