Snoring & Sleep Apnoea are part of a spectrum called Sleep Breathing Disorders. There are other disorders on this spectrum that cause a lot of distress, but are not well known. Click on the link above to learn more.
Obstructive Sleep Apnoea has a lot of vague symptoms, which is why over 80% of people with OSA do not realise they have a problem. Learn more about these symptoms here, as you may be surprised what you find.
OSA costs the NHS over £400 million a year as it causes raised blood pressure, weight gain, heart attacks, diabetes, strokes etc. The economic burden is greater as it causes road traffic accidents (40% of RTAs are caused by OSA drivers), and tiredness makes you less productive. Treating OSA solves most of these problems relatively quickly. Learn more about these consequences in this section.
A lot of people think that tiredness is a good way to diagnose sleep apnoea, but the vast majority of people with sleep apnoea are not excessively tired. There are screening tests that help like STOPBANG, but the only way to diagnose OSA is to do a good Sleep Study. Read more here, and learn how Mr Vik Veer will send you a Sleep Study device by courier to your home to use over night.
A lot has changed in the last 10 years with regards treatment for sleep apnoea as we now know far more than before. The non-surgical treatments are much better and are much easier to tolerate. There are now over 35 different operations for OSA and snoring, so a careful needs to be made to pick the right operation for each patient. There is no one operation that helps everyone, as surgeons realised over 10 years ago. Many of those patients have started snoring again, or never gained proper benefit. Learn how Mr Vik Veer analyses the data and picks the right operation for each patient, which is why his results are so objectively better than other surgeons.
