Partners also affected by sleep Apnoea…

CASE STUDY: Involving your partner is important to successful OSA management.

Sharan had been experiencing extreme daytime tiredness.  Dennis was very concerned for her, and he had Googled extensively to try to understand why.  They were left wondering what the cause could be, and based on her symptoms decided they would try to rule out Obstructive Sleep Apnoea (OSA). Their online research was like the research many of us do today when we experience poor health, but they had reached the point where they needed professional advice.

So just as Dennis and Sharan would consult their GP about chronic conditions such as diabetes and hypertension, they decided to speak with their local SleepGP at Coolangatta about sleep apnoea and how to help Sharan once again experience life to the fullest.

Sharan had a Level 2 sleep study, an upper airway examination, an assessment of her general health and treatment options explained. Sharan and Dennis opted for an APAP machine.

Dennis’ involvement and support was key to successful diagnosis and treatment of Sharan’s chronic OSA. That shared journey is strongly encouraged and welcomed by The SleepGP. Most partners of OSA sufferers also have their life derailed and disrupted by the impacts of OSA on their partners sleep patterns.

Conclusion: Through her partner’s support, and the skills of The SleepGP, Sharan’s life has returned to normal – and Dennis couldn’t be happier.

The SleepGP’s Comprehensive Approach

The SleepGP’s comprehensive approach gathers data about the patient’s co-morbidities, medications, lifestyle sleep health and biometrics (via an in depth iPad based survey). It imports sleep study data which has been reported on by a specialist Sleep Physician, and it includes a physical examination of the airway. This is unique.

This comprehensive personalised approach is entirely different to the one-size-fits-all profit driven approach taken by many commercial and online CPAP sales organisations.

Over 6000 patients have benefited from The Sleep GP Model of Care since 2013.

These doctors know that adequate, quality sleep sits alongside a balanced diet and regular exercise in their patients’ holistic healthcare. SleepGPs also know that diagnosing, treating and managing uncomplicated OSA in a GP practice is a more accessible patient pathway with lower cost to the individual and community.…and it takes account of partners’ concerns too, like in Dennis and Sharan’s case.
