Who is at risk for developing sleep apnoea?

Couple Sleeping | Sleep Apnea Casuarina NT Many people are surprised to find out that anyone can develop sleep apnoea, even children, making it essential to seek treatment for yourself or loved ones when you suspect the presence of sleep-disordered breathing. Often people don't realize they have sleep apnoea until their sleep partner tells them about loud snoring or cessation of breathing during the night. People suffering from sleep apnoea may wake up tired, even after thinking they'd gotten a good night's rest. It can negatively impact functioning with day-to-day activities.

Some characteristics and lifestyle habits increase the risk of sleep apnoea.

  • Men over the age of 40
  • People who are overweight
  • Thick neck circumference
  • Alcohol and smoking
  • Certain medications

Protect Yourself 

Because sleep apnoea is a potentially life-threatening illness and has been linked to heart conditions and early cardiac death, seeking an accurate diagnosis and treatment can prolong your life and result in the restorative sleep necessary for a healthy body.
