Test a snorer before getting MAD
National Stop Snoring Week 2019

This year we’re focusing on the importance of diagnostics and getting tested for the type of snorer an individual is ahead of treatment. The British Snoring & Sleep Apnoea Association is launching a survey to understand the gaps in self diagnosis and treatment to see if more can be done at home. In particular to help their bed partners get a good night’s sleep again but also to alleviate the pressure on NHS resources.

Take advantage of FREE POSTAGE & PACKING for the duration of National Stop Snoring Week, and watch out for many other offers to come over the next few days.

Snoring noise and sleep disturbance - is it a threat to our health?
National Stop Snoring Week 2017

The sound of snoring is irritating and annoying and can lead to sleep deprivation for the bed partner. But the noise of snoring can also cause a number of health problems.

We all know how it feels if we have not had a good night's sleep - we feel tired and sleepy all day, bad tempered, lacking concentration, and generally irritable. Bed partners who are disturbed every night by snoring they experience these symptoms every day.

Can you blame your parents for your snoring and sleep apnoea?
National Stop Snoring Week 2015

We will be discussing the main causes of snoring and sleep apnoea and why many of them are inherited and run in families.

Obesity, head & facial shape, upper airway anatomy, and neurological control of breathing are inherited and are often the cause of snoring and sleep apnoea.

During the week we hope to distinguish inherited traits that pre-dispose to snoring from those lifestyle factors that contribute to snoring.

If you belong to a family of snorers or have sleep apnoea (2 or more generations) and would like to tell us your story please get in touch.
