It could be sleep apnoea.
If you snore regularly, wake up tired and experience constant daytime fatigue, you may have a condition known as sleep apnoea.
Sleep apnoea is a disorder that is characterised by abnormal pauses in breathing while sleeping, which can greatly affect your quality of sleep. And you may not even be aware that you have it.
The TerryWhite Chemmart® Pharmacy Sleep Better program is just one of the Wellbeing Services we offer.
One of our Pharmacists can give you a Home Sleep Test to check if you have the disorder, along with advice and treatment.
TerryWhite Chemmart Nelson Bay is one of the few pharmacies in Australia to offer a home sleep testing service.
Our trained technician will come to your home in the evening and fit you with monitoring equipment.
The data collected overnight will be sent to a doctor that is a specialist in sleep disorders. A report is prepared and sent back to your doctor for evaluation.
If needed we can organise a trial of CPAP equipment that will treat sleep apnoea.
The patient is required to pay $100 towards the cost of a home sleep test and a referral is required from your doctor.
We also sell or hire all RESMED cPAP equipment and consumables. Call or drop in for details.
