Ever wondered if you’re sleeping really well?National Pharmacies
When people think of lack of sleep, it is normally associated with having a young family but if you or your partner have Obstructive Sleep Apnoea (OSA), you will not be the only one affected, it can cause sleep issues for the whole house.
Loud, persistent snoring is a common symptom of OSA and sometimes it is loud enough to even be heard through a closed door. You can imagine what this does for your bed partner and other members of the family who may be sleep deprived
due to the loud snoring throughout the night. Some partners even choose to sleep in a separate room which can affect a relationship.
Gasping for Breath
Many bed partners have witnessed their partners with OSA stop breathing in their sleep and this can be distressing causing them to stay awake for extended period, concerned for their partner’s welfare.
Irritability and Grumpiness
Not getting sufficient, quality sleep is something that affects everyone in the house and can have an impact on general health and wellbeing. OSA sufferers and their families can experience more arguments, shorter temper, irritability and difficulty focusing due to disrupted sleep.
Help is Here
The good news is that OSA can be treated with Positive Airway Pressure therapy and the benefits will impact the whole family. If you think you or your loved one may be suffering from OSA, speak to one of our consultants to find out how we can help you and your family achieve a great night’s sleep.
