Weight Loss and Sleep Apnoea
WeightMatters have been helping patients of The Sleep Disorders Clinic for many years to achieve weight loss to improve sleep. Excess weight is a major contributing factor to Sleep Disordered Breathing, particulty Obstructive Sleep Apnoea. Excess weight in many cases can lead to Obstructive Sleep Apnoea due to large neck sizes and fluid distribution.
Once treatment is in place for Obstructive Sleep Apnoea WeightMatters can prescribe a weight loss programme to not only improve your general health but also your Obstructive Sleep Apnoea. WeightMatters helped patients of The Sleep Disorders Clinic not only reduce the severity of their Obstructive Sleep Apnoea but also cure it.
TREATMENT FOR SLEEP APNOEA
Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) is the gold standard treatment for Obstructive Sleep Apnoea. Sleep Apnoea is the process of the upper airway partially or fully closing, often leading to snoring and pauses in breathing, resulting in a highly fragmented sleep. CPAP supports the airway by providing normal room air at higher pressure, splinting the airway open, controlling the snoring and Sleep Apnoea. The Sleep Disorders Clinic provides a comprehensive CPAP treatment plan with frequent structured reviews to ensure your CPAP journey is as smooth as possible. Our CPAP service is led by our expert Sleep Physiologists.
Pre Surgical Sleep Studies
Surgery and general anaesthetics are serious procedures. Our pre surgical sleep studies help make them safer. Our pre-surgical sleep studies help identify and quantify the presence of any sleep disordered breathing. If further management is required to make your surgery safer these will be explained.
Working with your WeightMatters practitioner, your particular history will be discussed and your consultation will be directed to the right professional for you. Whether that’s a Sleep Physician or a Sleep Physiologist.
