The doctors who run this laboratory are specialists in sleep disorders, active members of the Australasian Sleep Association.

Your GP can arrange a sleep study directly, however it may well be appropriate to have a specialist consultation, particularly if:

 

  • your daytime sleepiness is severe.
  • you have had a fall asleep motor vehicle accident or been frightened by dozing while driving.
  • you need to stay alert at work: with power tools or at a height.
  • other medical problems exist, made worse by sleep apnoea: diabetes, difficult to treat hypertension or heart problems.
  • your symptoms started without the usual issues such as significant weight gain or when a woman goes through the menopause.

We are the sleep apnoea specialists
More than a snoring problem, sleep apnoea is a potentially serious condition where the airways become blocked while sleeping. If you believe that you may be suffering from this condition, it’s important to seek medical advice. As a specialist clinic, SleepCare will perform a polysomnogram (psg) – that is, a test used to diagnose sleeping disorders – in order to confirm the root cause of your problems.
Treatment may involve a combination of lifestyle changes (e.g. weight loss), use of a continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) machine or a special mouth guard which holds the jaw forward.
