What is Sleep Apnoea?

  This is the sound of a person with sleep apnoea

You stop breathing frequently when you are asleep. It happens many times every hour.
But you do not hear yourself.
However, your partner your family and even your neighbours do hear you.
They wait in anticipation for you to start breathing again.
Your sleep is unrefreshing and you will wake up still feeling tired.
Those hearing you may not get any sleep at all.
Is it dangerous? – IT CAN BE
Should you get it treated? – YES

What is Sleep Apnoea?

You can now watch the presentations at this year’s event, by clicking on the individual presentation on the next tab

On the 15th October 2022, SATA will hold its third annual sleep apnoea patients conference online as a virtual event. We had hoped to hold a hybrid event allowing physical and virtual attendance. However, it is clear that the global shortage of CPAP machines due to the Philips issue, is likely to continue for many more months, so a major attraction of the physical conference, to see the latest machines, is not viable. In addition, the waiting lists for referrals to Sleep Clinics is growing, so a physical event, designed in part to help those newly diagnosed is also not viable. Let’s hope 14th Oct 2023 will see a return to normality.
