Sleep Disorder Breathing Assessment

Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) is a condition whereby a person stops breathing repeatedly for short periods of time during sleep.

OSA occurs when the muscles in the upper airway relax and causes the airway to collapse during sleep. Air is prevented from getting into the lungs and causes breathing difficulties and snoring.

Sleep pattern get disrupted and oxygen level in the blood decreases; affecting the quality of life, work and relationships in the long run.

Untreated OSA leads to

  • Memory loss
  • Stroke
  • Hypertension
  • Diabetes
  • Depression
  • Increased risk of heart attack
  • Increased risk of motor vehicle accidents
