Doc Talk #48 – Sleep Apnoea

 

 

In this show we talked about sleep apnoea.

If you are having headaches in the mornings, sore throats/dry mouth, snoring at night and sleepiness during the day you may be risk. Listen to this show to learn more about whether you might be at risk, testing and treatment for this disorder.

As ever lifestyle factors are important and excess weight and smoking are both associated with an increased risk of sleep apnoea.
