Sleep apnoea

Basic Sleep Hygiene

-Good sleep hygiene is critical for one’s overall physical and mental health.
-Your body can be compared to a battery - it needs to be re-charged on a regular basis or it will get run down and maybe even die!
-It is best to go to bed at a regular time each night and get up at a regular time every morning – 7 days a week.
-The body needs 7 - 8 hours of quality sleep every night. 
-Your overall health will pay the price eventually if you are constantly sleep deprived


-Apnoea : Cessation of airflow for greater than 10 seconds with continued chest and abdominal effort.
-Hypopnea : Decrease in amount of air breathed (some say by 50%) with a desaturation of at least 3%.
