What is sleep apnoea?
Sleep apnoea is a kind of sleep disorder that manifests through instances of infrequent breathing during sleep.
People who suffer from this condition are often unaware of it. Sleep apnoea is characterised by pauses in breathing, which can last from several seconds up to several minutes (!).
What are the common symptoms in sleep apnoea?
Surprisingly, sleep apnoea can affect both adults and children. It only occurs while you’re sleeping (see name), but it is very difficult for an individual to figure out they suffer from this condition. You are rarely aware that you have difficulty breathing in your sleep.
So in order for you to be able to easily identify it, we have put together some of the most common symptoms of sleep apnoea:
- You feel sleepy all the time
- You experience fatigue in the middle of the day, with no obvious reason
- Morning headaches
- Loud snoring, which can make you wake up in the morning with a dry throat
The best way to put a diagnosis on it is to perform a formal sleep study, also known as a polysomnography, which determines the number of apneic events per hour of sleep.
