Sleep is something that we all do as naturally as breathing and eating, from the time you are formed in utero till the time you die. Yet scientists and doctors understand the physiology of breathing and eating far better than we understand the mysteries of the mind and body during sleep. In the last twenty years however, we are beginning to understand far more about sleep, both the physiology of what happens as we fall asleep, and the pathologies that underlie conditions such as obstructive sleep apnoea and contribute to their morbidity and mortality. Even more importantly, we are much better equipped to diagnose and treat these conditions that affect us mainly when we are asleep, and which affect both the quality of our lives in the day, and our survival.
In this brochure, we hope to introduce to you the more common sleep disorders, along with their signs and symptoms, and what you can do to help yourself. We aim to empower you to understand your conditions and the various treatment options available.
