Sleep related breathing disorder is a prevalent medical condition affecting up to 2 - 4% of the adult population. Obstructive Sleep Apnoea (OSA) is the most common condition in sleep disordered breathing, it affects 4% of males and 2% of females among the middle-aged population as well as 25% of the elderly. Unfortunately, it remains largely under-diagnosed and under-treated in the community. Our Sleep Apnoea Clinic & Laboratory comes with the new state-of-the-art equipment and techniques like the Polysomnography System and the Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) treatment, which help doctors to deliver accurate diagnosis and treatment.

OSA is a recognized contributing factor for hypertension, ischaemic heart disease, stroke, heart failure, nocturnal arrhythmia and sudden cardiac death. Symptoms of sleep apnoea syndrome include:

habitual snoring
excessive daytime sleepiness
witnessed apnoea and choking during sleep
increased cardiovascular morbidity and mortality
