Causes and Treatment of Sleep Apnea [transcript] [audio]

Guest: Dr Jayne Carberry

Guest Bio: Dr. Jayne Carberry is a Post-Doctoral Research Fellow at the NeuRA Sleep and Breathing Lab and recently published a paper on Personalized Management Approach for Obstructive Sleep Apnea.  

Segment overview: More than 1 million Australian adults suffer from Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA). OSA is a complex clinical sleep problem, characterised by snoring, periodic apnea, hypoxemia during sleep, and daytime sleepiness. If left untreated, sleep apnea sufferers will experience serious health, safety and economic consequences. In this interview, Dr Jayne Carberry talks about how NeuRa can give hope for those who suffer from sleep disorders and reminds the importance of prioritising sleep as one of the three core pillars of health (with exercise and healthy eating).
