Sleep Apnea Treatment Brisbane
Sleep apnea treatment in Brisbane has never been more accessible.
Diagnosis and treatment of sleep apnea can now be done in the comfort and privacy of your own home.
Specially trained Sleep Therapy nurses will screen you with a detailed questionnnaire over the phone. When appropriate, an appointment will be made for the nurse to visit your home or work to deliver and demonstrate a diagnostic sleep recorder (polysomnogram). The diagnostic recorder is worn overnight in the comfort of your own bed, delivering a much more typical night's sleeping pattern and avoiding the need for an overnight stay in a hospital based sleep lab. The next morning the data will be collected and dispatched to an independent specialist sleep physician.
If the sleep physician diagnoses obstructive sleep apnea the nurse will commence treatment with CPAP (constant positive airway pressurisation). Again this is done in the comfort and privacy of your own home.
Unlike mere CPAP merchants, our nurses will guide you through the process of becoming a successful CPAP user. CPAP is considered the 'gold standard' for the treatment of severe sleep apnea, but some patients experience some difficulty in complying with this form of therapy. This is precisely where our nurses can help.
Over a period of a month or more, using a rental machine, the nurse will test and adjust different masks, headbands, CPAP systems and humidification equipment. Regular checks will be performed to confirm that the equipment is being worn properly and no excess air leackage is occuring. Only once you are comfortably and effectively using the CPAP equipment, and only once your sleep apnea has been restored to 'normal' levels will the nurse help you to purchase your own equipment.
Sleep apnea treatment in Brisbane is not offered to this high standard by any other treatment provider -- so if you want a treatment that works, rather than just an expensive piece of equipment which gathers dust and never gets used, contact us.
The side effects and consequences of sleep apnea are very serious and tend to worsen over time. For more information, visit Effects of Snoring & Apnea.
