Sleep Disordered Breathing in St. John's

More than 2 million Canadians suffer from sleep disordered breathing. Are you one of them? And if you are, is there reason for concern? Let’s investigate…

Sleep disordered breathing is a condition characterized by repeated episodes of hypopnea (under-breathing) and apnea (not breathing) during sleep. Sleep disordered breathing can cause temporary elevations in blood pressure, lowered blood oxygen levels and over time, sustained high blood pressure and other very serious conditions. It should not go undiagnosed or untreated.

The most common form of sleep disordered breathing in St. John’s and throughout Newfoundland & Labrador is Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA), reportedly experienced to some degree by about 30% of men and 20% of women. When OSA is present, the upper airway closes either partially or fully during sleep, while efforts to breathe are ongoing.

How do you know if you have OSA?

  • Chronic snoring and pauses in breathing, usually noticed by partners
  • Disturbed sleep
  • Frequent daytime grogginess
  • Lack of concentration

Beyond a reduced quality of life and wellbeing, sleep disordered breathing can lead to many adverse health conditions. At HorizonAire, we offer tools to diagnose and treat your sleep disordered breathing in St. John’s and throughout the province. Talk to us now about how we can help you.
