SummaryA bad night’s sleep can cause numerous health problems. Disrupted sleep not only affects daytime alertness and energy, but it also may also increase anxiety and the risk of high blood pressure, erectile dysfunction in men and heart disease. Sleep disordered breathing, or sleep apnoea, is a common cause of disrupted sleep.

Chronic snoring is a strong predictor of sleep apnoea but not all men who snore have sleep apnoea. There is however a high prevalence of sleep apnoea in the community and particularly in men, yet few people who have sleep apnoea are aware of their condition.

In an entertaining evening,  topics to be covered are:

  • How prevalent is sleep apnoea?
  • What are the consequences of having it?
  • What might lead to you or your doctor to suspect that you have it?
  • What tests are required to confirm that it is present?, and
  • When is treatment required and if so, what treatment?
