What is Obstructive Sleep Apnoea?
Obstructive Sleep Apnoea (OSA) is the most common sleep disorder and affects approximately 4.7 percent of Australian adults. One in 10 men aged over 45 have moderate-severe OSA.
OSA has significant clinical consequences and is associated with leading causes of death in adults, including:
