Is snoring disturbing your sleep?
Sponsored content: Snoring can be a sign of a serious health condition but a new app can check if there is more to a snore.
If you or your partner snores, not only can it interrupt your sleep, it could be an indication of sleep apnoea.
Sleep apnoea is a serious medical condition that can have a major impact on your life.
Sleep apnoea is when air stops flowing to your lungs for ten seconds or longer during sleep. This causes daytime tiredness, headaches, reduced productivity and an impaired immune system.
Sleep apnoea has been associated with an increased risk of heart attack, high blood pressure, depression, stroke, diabetes and accidents1.
Alarmingly, people with sleep apnoea are seven times more likely to be involved in a motor accident2.
There is an easy way for you and your partner to find out your risk of sleep apnoea with the SleepCheck app so you can seek treatment sooner.
SleepCheck is a clinically accurate, hassle-free sleep apnoea screening app that checks breathing and snoring sounds during sleep. It assesses the risk of sleep apnoea overnight in the comfort of your own bed. SleepCheck will tell you if you need to talk to your doctor about a diagnostic sleep test.
Check if there is more to their snore.
