The SleepGP takes an active and diagnostic role in the treatment and ongoing management of Obstructive Sleep Apnoea (OSA) by putting GPs specially trained in sleep medicine at the centre of patient care.
Over the last 5 years, The SleepGP has helped over 5000 patients to successfully manage their sleep disorder and reduce their snoring.
A wide range of self appointed ‘CPAP experts’ have sprung up in recent years, many online based, and most with the primary motivation of selling as many CPAP machines as possible. A large proportion of CPAP users lapse because they have not been fully and clinically assessed, because they got the wrong therapy and because aftercare was virtually non-existent after the CPAP sales organisation had taken the patients hard earned money.
CPAP sales are NOT The SleepGP’s main driver. At The Sleep GP, we want patients to be properly diagnosed, and treated with the right therapy. There is a range of ways to treat OSA depending on the severity of the diagnosis.
The SleepGP understands that every patient is different and a one-fix solution won’t resolve every sleep issue. The SleepGP does not automatically recommend CPAP devices as a treatment solution, unless it is absolutely our professional judgement that this is the recommended therapy, and we offer an obligation free trial of a device.
Depending on the severity, some people can manage a mild disorder by losing weight, reducing alcohol consumption or adjusting sleep positions. Some patients with moderate or severe OSA will be better suited to a positioning device or a jaw advancement splint, and in some limited cases, surgery.request an appointment call: 1300 405 286
