How to recognize Sleep Apnea
Research has shown that 75% of people with Sleep Apnea go undiagnosed. In the first place, you need to do a Free Sleep Study Screening.
Take our 5 second test before Free Sleep Study Screening:
- Are you tired during the day?
- Do you snore?
- Do you stop breathing during sleep?
If you answered YES to two or more of these questions, contact us to book your free test.
There could be MORE to that SNORE that you think!
In particular, untreated Sleep Apnea can have negative long-term consequences for your health, including:
- High blood pressure;
- Heart disease, an abnormal heart rhythm, heart failure;
- Stroke or coronary artery disease (CAD);
- Pre-diabetes and diabetes;
If you have sleep apnea, you also may not be sleeping as well as you could. If you feel sleepy during the day and it gets in the way of the normal things you do (like work, school, or driving), it’s important to talk to your doctor. Be safe. Do not drive while you are drowsy.
As a result, if any of these circumstances sound familiar and you have been told that you snore, don’t wait. Get Sleep Advice and a Sleep Study.

How is sleep apnea diagnosed?
Your doctor will probably examine you and ask about your past health. He or she may also ask you or your sleep partner about your snoring and sleep behaviour and how tired you feel during the day.
Your doctor may suggest a sleep study. A sleep study may take place in your home or at a sleep centre, where you will spend the night. Sleep studies find out how often you stop breathing or have too little air flowing into your lungs during sleep. They also find out how much oxygen you have in your blood during sleep. You may have blood tests and X-rays.
