Still tired after 8 hours sleep

06 05 2015 65% of people have a symptom of this dangerous sleep condition

In our YouGov survey 65% of people the UK admitted that they snore.  The true figure may be even higher as 86% of people in relationships were quite happy to admit that their partner snored, yet perhaps didn’t want to admit to the embarrassing problem themselves.

Snoring does not only put a stress on people’s relationships, but can also be a sign of a potentially dangerous condition called sleep apnoea.

What are the signs and symptoms of sleep apnoea?

 

  • Loud snoring
  • Still feeling tired after 8 hours of sleep
  • Noisy or laboured breathing when asleep
  • Periods during sleep where you stop breathing, and then gasp for air
  • Poor memory and finding it difficult to concentrate
  • Mood swings
  • Depression

It has been estimated by the NHS that up to 85%[i] of sleep apnoea cases go undiagnosed.  When left untreated for a long time, the condition is linked to a number of chronic diseases including heart disease, type 2 diabetes, stroke, high blood pressure, and depression.

How can it be treated?

The Snoreeze Oral Device  is a simple, adjustable mouthpiece that treats mild/moderate sleep apnoea.  The device gently maintains or advances the position of your jaw;  this increases your airway opening and allows for unrestricted, quiet breathing while you sleep.

People rarely ignore symptoms of other serious conditions, yet snoring is often brushed off as a bit of a joke.  If you snore heavily and are worried you may suffer from sleep apnoea, take our screening test below.
