Simple snoring is common. Sometimes it is severe enough to cause domestic disharmony or embarrassment.

It can also be associated with obstruction to your breathing while you sleep.

This can affect the quality of your sleep and lead to feeling poorly refreshed in the morning and to tiredness or sleepiness during the day. This condition is known as sleep apnoea syndrome and is one of several sleep-breathing problems.

Dr McAlpine can assess the symptoms and arrange a home sleep study if appropriate. A sleep study involves you wearing equipment that monitors your breathing, oxygen levels, and heart rate while you sleep at home. The data recorded will be later analysed in detail by Dr McAlpine who will go through this with you at your follow up appointment and decide what action is needed.
