What Is Sleep Apnea?

Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) is a common sleep disorder. Many people have it and don’t realise.

Sleep apnea is a serious, potentially life-threatening condition that is far more common than people may think. 

OSA causes interruptions to breathing while you’re asleep. The interruptions, which can last for up to ten seconds or more, occur when the airway narrows so much that it closes and breathing stops. The brain reacts by briefly waking the person, causing the airways to reopen and the breathing to restart. 

The person may not be aware of this and the processes can be repeated up to several hundred times during the night. 

Stimulants (like coffee) taken to counter the effects of tiredness are not a substitute for sleep. The regular use of stimulants by individuals may be a clue to the existence of an underlying sleep disorder.

Identifying The Problem

At Fit for Duty, we provide an effective process to identify risk, screen for incidences os OSA, and then provide an effective treatment and monitoring program.

Since OSA leads to broken sleep throughout the night, it can cause excessive sleepiness during the day. OSA not only disrupts sleep, but it can have a profound impact on all aspects of health and wellbeing. 

Untreated sleep disorders, including OSA, commonly result in individuals being excessively sleepy during the day. The elevated sleepiness poses a significant risk to their personal safety, their employer’s health and safety exposure, and others in their community. 

At Fit for Duty, we undertake sleeping tests to see if you potentially have an underlying sleeping disorder. If you’ve noticed interrupted sleep and general tiredness throughout the day, get in touch with us to find out more.

Commonly Asked Questions from Our Clients Who Needed Sleep Apnea Treatment

Here are a few commonly asked questions from our clients over the years:

Could I not just buy a used CPAP machine?

 While this is undoubtedly an option, it is far from ideal. Considering CPAP machines are warm and moist when operational, they are the perfect breeding ground for bacteria. Buying a used machine – which was probably not appropriately cleaned – may lead to infection risks.

Do you offer finance options for CPAP machines?

We do indeed! We have a range of finance options including Q-Card for 12 months interest free, Debit Success for month rental or rent to buy options and AfterPay for easy fortnightly repayments.

Is sleep apnea a severe problem?

 It is. The National Sleep Foundation (USA) reports that sleep deprivation now constitutes the number one killer in the Western world. Additionally, research estimates that almost one-third of the population will suffer from a sleep disorder during their lifetime and that another third is already dangerously sleep-deprived.
