Snore Guards and Sleep Apnoea

 

Is snoring a problem for you or your partner?

Are you feeling tired on waking, fatigued during the day?

Has anyone heard you gasp or stop breathing when you sleep?

It is estimated that up to one third of people have sleep apnoea (where one stops breathing for periods during sleep) and at least 90% is undiagnosed.  Sleep apnoea can lead to adverse health outcomes including a higher risk for heart attack, diabetes, and  stroke.
