Treatment is supervised by the Institute staff. The choice of treatment is determined following the diagnostic sleep study in consultation with the Institute's staff.

Treatment of breathing disorders of sleep fits into five broad categories:

  • Lifestyle changes including diet, reduction in alcohol and sedative use, smoking cessation
  • Dental devices – for the treatment of snoring and milder forms of obstructive sleep apnoea
  • Continuous Positive Airway pressure (CPAP) – the delivery of a constant low pressure of air to the upper airway via a nose or face mask during sleep to pneumatically splint it open, preventing obstructive sleep apnoea
  • Non-Invasive ventilation (NIV) – the delivery of intermittent positive airway pressure via a nose or face mask to mechanically assist breathing, particularly during sleep, in patients with respiratory muscles that are either weak or excessively loaded due to obesity, chest wall deformity or advanced lung disease.
  • Surgery – where a surgically correctable condition exists

The Institute operates outpatient clinics to supervise this treatment and carries an extensive range of equipment from a variety of major manufacturers including ResMed, Respironics, Fisher Paykel and Puritan Bennett. You can find these websites from our links.
