FOR the past 12 years, Heather Watts from Shepparton Sleep Centre has been successfully treating patients suffering from sleep apnea.
Sleep apnea is a disorder where the muscles that control your upper airway over-relax during sleep, causing it to narrow.
This is a serious disorder and symptoms of sleep apnea are tiredness, headaches, forgetfulness, poor concentration and lack of energy. However it is easily diagnosed and treated, and this can be done through the Shepparton Sleep Centre,” Heather said.
The treatment for obstructive sleep apnea is Continuous Positive Airway Pressure, known as CPAP. This is air delivered by a device kept on your bedside table via a mask. To assist people in the Goulburn Valley and surrounding areas, during November 21 and 22, Shepparton Sleep Centre is giving all CPAP users the opportunity to access a free CPAP Equipment Service. If you have had your machine for longer than 12 months and have not had a review, this service day is a great opportunity to come in for an assessment. Additionally, Shepparton Sleep Centre is offering an ‘End of 2017 Summer Sale.’
Heather said, “The latest and quite possibly the world’s smallest CPAP device is the ResMed AirMini which features ResMed’s proven algorithms. This device is small and discreet, ultra portable, user friendly and has a contemporary design. It also has convenient therapy control direct from your smartphone with the AirMini App and offers waterless humidification with HumidXTM.
To ensure that you are getting the best out of your CPAP machine with safe and restful sleeps call into Shepparton Sleep Centre at 234 Wyndham Street, Shepparton or phone 5822 1661 to make your appointment.
