Sleep apnoea occurs when a person stops breathing while asleep, and may last from 10 seconds to a minute; this makes your blood oxygen level drop which in turn triggers your brain to wake you up just enough to take a breath. Then you fall back to sleep and the cycle begins again.

This can happen more than 30 times every hour and you may not even know it. As you can imagine, constantly being triggered back into breathing, hour after hour, night after night, can put a strain on your body. The next day you may feel tired and wrung out. Sleep apnea isn’t just an inconvenience. Left undiagnosed and untreated, it can have serious long-term effects on your health.

Sufferers have an increased risk of hypertension, cardiovascular disease, stroke, daytime sleepiness and motor vehicle accidents, and are likely to have a reduced quality of life.

Our pharmacist can provide you with the right advice on getting a diagnosis and the best treatment for you. We discuss with you your sleep habits and overall health. Treatment can vary from person to person and according to the severity of the sleep apnoea. 

We communicate and collaborate with relevant clinicians, such as referring doctors or sleep clinicians. We can make sure you get the right products to improve your sleep, as well as supply equipment and demonstrate its use.
