Obstructive sleep apnoea is the name used to describe a breathing problem that happens when you sleep. The condition affects men, women and children.

    Clinical data indicates that Obstructive Sleep Apnoea Syndrome (OSAS) is one of the most frequent causes of sleep disordered breathing. OSAS is a clinical condition characterised by numerous episodes of apnoea and hypopnea (pauses in breathing or instances of shallow or infrequent breathing during sleep)

    Each episode may result in the patient awakening, or partially awakening, the consequences of which can be:

    • Restless, superficial sleep that does not permit the person to feel rested
    • Difficulty waking up due to lack of “high quality” sleep
    • Mental lethargy / diminished mental function
    • Excessive sleepiness during the day and inability to function as normal at home, at work, at leisure

     

    To diagnose sleep apnoea, identify the root causes, and determine the method of treatment requires the help of Healthcare Professionals. Conditions that may be hidden or latent may be identified by the analysis of a patient’s sleep patterns.

    This requires tests by using diagnostic devices whilst the patient sleeps. Dolby Vivisol provides equipment for the diagnosis of sleep-related respiratory disorders; from the simplest cardio-respiratory screening devices to advanced polygraphy systems.

    For the treatment of sleep disordered breathing we provide a range of devices designed to be used within the home environment.
