Consequences of OSA

Understanding that the potential consequences of OSA are not just physical side effects, but critical functions that a person needs to navigate through their day is important. Fragmented sleep has a high impact on our performance, with OSA associated hypoxia affecting key body functions that affect immunity and wellness.

If you have a patient that is suffering the symptoms associated with sleep apnea, then try a Level 2 sleep test which will not only measure the snore, but analyse your patient's sleep cycle.
