Whether it is just snoring or OSA, one thing’s for sure—your quality of sleep and health will greatly improve should such symptoms be treated. At My ENT Specialist, we are equipped with advanced technologies and expertise to diagnose your condition, assess its severity and customize a targeted treatment plan for you.
Sleep apnoea—most commonly obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA)—is a potentially serious sleep disorder where the patient repeatedly starts and stops breathing intermittently while asleep. A noticeable sign of OSA is snoring and waking up gasping for air. This is due to the muscles at the back of the throat relaxing too much, such that the airway narrows or closes entirely. With regular snoring, however, it is simply the result of tissues in the throat relaxing enough such that they partially block the airway and vibrate, causing a sound.

- Reduced Oxygen Levels: When your airways are unable to inhale properly
- Heart Strain: As the heart has to pump harder and faster to supply oxygen-rich blood
- Daytime Fatigue: Repeatedly waking up at night to breathe worsens sleep quality
