Sleep Specialist Services 

Sleep is essential for healthy living. However, how much sleep a person needs depends on a person’s age and lifestyle. Moreover, most people require 6 and 8 hours of sleep each night. If you are not getting enough sleep or having a poor night’s sleep, it could be time to see a sleep specialist.  

When it comes to getting a good night’s sleep, there should be two elements assessed. Sleep quantity, referring to how much sleep a person is getting and sleep quality, which refers to how fulfilling your sleep is and whether or not you are still tired even after getting an adequate amount of sleep.  

Getting a good night’s sleep is important for an individual’s physical and mental health. Poor sleep quality can have a detrimental impact on their quality of life. There is a close relationship between sleep and mental health

Sleep disorders harm someone’s ability to get a good night’s sleep. Many sleep disorders can impact a person, insomnia being the most common. Others include apnea, narcolepsy, sleepwalking and hypersomnia. Sleep disorders can be grouped based on several factors, including behaviours, breathing problems, difficulty getting asleep and more. If someone is suffering from a sleep disorder, they may have a number of symptoms including dry throat, excessive fatigue, snoring, being more irritable than normal, insomnia or the inability to wake. Speak to a sleep specialist about these symptoms today.  

If you are suffering from a sleep disorder or have had trouble sleeping, speak to one of our GPs about our virtual sleep specialist services. Leaving a sleep disorder untreated, can harm your physical health. Sleep and mental health are also closely linked.   

 

We also offer a Virtual Wellness Screen for a more holistic view of your health including sleep diagnostics using the state of the art Oura Ring.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is insomnia?

Insomnia is a common sleep disorder that makes it difficult to fall asleep and hard to stay asleep. It impacts a person’s energy levels, work performance and quality of life.  

Adults can experience short-term or acute insomnia which normally lasts for days or weeks and is usually a result of a traumatic or stressful event. However, some people can also experience long-term or chronic insomnia, which lasts a month or more.  

Those who suffer from insomnia are usually tired during the day, have fatigue, problems with concentration or memory, and have an irritable mood. 

What is sleep apnea?

Sleep apnea is a sleep disorder where a person’s breathing stops and starts. Symptoms of sleep apnea include making gasping, snorting or choking noises while you sleep, waking up a lot and loud snoring. If someone suffers from sleep apnea, they often feel tired during the day, find it hard to concentrate, have mood swings and often suffer from headaches in the morning.
