Fall Sleep Apnea Meeting

 

Unfortunately, our presenter for tomorrow night's meeting has been redeployed in the SHA.

Thankfully, the vendor who was also attending, Parkland CPAP, has stepped up to provide a short presentation in her absence along with plenty of time to ask questions about equipment etc.

Sleep Apnea is the intermittent absence of breathing during sleep. The apneas or pauses in breathing can happen many times during sleep and in severe sleep apnea, some people may have as many as 500 apneas per night.

Sleep Apnea is easily identified by a Sleep Specialist or Respirologist and can be effectively treated. Sleep apnea is often called the snoring disease because snoring is a common symptom. Snoring followed by silent pauses and daytime sleepiness are strong indicators for sleep apnea. Those who experience these two key symptoms should consult their doctor and seek a referral to a Respirologist for assessment and testing.
