“SNORING will cease on the first night of treatment,” says Biomedical Scientist and Sleep Consultant, Andrew Nunn bringing relief for snorers (and their partners) in Wangaratta.
With the Sleep Right Australia office now based full time at 82 Ovens Street Wangaratta, Mr Nunn brings a new dimension to the range of specialist health and wellbeing services available in the northeast, specifically a good night’s sleep!
“Given that we sleep for one third of our lives, a good night’s sleep is central to feeling great and getting the most out of life,” said Mr Nunn.
Many people don’t realise that snoring and other sleep disorders are treatable so they battle on with difficult symptoms such as lethargy, lack of energy, headaches, migraines, depression, sexual dysfunction or obesity.
Mr Nunn said that often it will be someone in the same bed who forces the issue, disturbed by their partner snoring, waking gasping for air or getting up frequently during the night to go to the toilet.
“These are all typical signs of sleep apnoea,” said Mr Nunn.
Sleep apnoea affects around one in four males over 30, and one in eight females over 30. Sufferers will typically stop breathing for 10 seconds or more several times during the night – sometimes as many as 300 times.
“Undiagnosed and untreated sleep apnoea can lead to Type II Diabetes, increased risk of stroke, hypertension and cardio-vascular disease,” said Mr Nunn.
The good news is that Sleep Right Australia is now in Wangaratta with a range of services for new and existing CPAP users, including Sleep Tests, CPAP therapy and Provent therapy, an exciting new product ideal for travelers and people who are non-compliant with CPAP.
“Getting tested and treated is so easy now with Home Sleep Testing.”
“Many patients have reported life changing differences, increased energy, weight loss and improved marital relations as a result of treatment,” said Mr Nunn.
