What is sleep apnea?

Apnea literally means "no breath" or "stopping breathing".

If you have ‘obstructive sleep apnea’ (OSA), the muscles in your throat relax while you sleep. Your throat closes completely and you temporarily stop breathing. This is called an 'obstructive sleep apnea' or 'OSA'. Other reasons for an obstruction can be a large tongue, obesity or weak muscles in your airway.

When you stop breathing, there is not enough oxygen in your blood, so your brain briefly wakes you up so you can breathe again. This means that throughout the night you keep waking up, possibly 100's of times, causing you to be extremely sleepy in the day.

Evaluate your risk of sleep apnea

If you think you could be at risk of obstructive sleep apnea, take our symptoms quiz to evaluate your risk. There are only 8 questions and it should only take you a few minutes. The quiz result is based solely on the information you provide, it is no substitute for individual medical advice, diagnosis or treatment.

Think you may have sleep apnea?

If your quiz result indicates that you are at an intermediate or high risk of OSA then you should make an appointment with your GP to assess your symptoms. You may like to take your quiz results with you to your appointment.

You also have the option to pay for a private diagnosis, which is often faster than seeing your GP.
