Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is a sleep disorder caused by blockages to regular breathing. As those with sleep apnea are not able to breathe properly while sleeping, they suffer from a lack of oxygen and broken sleep. Sleep apnea affects almost 6% of the population, and many are not aware that they have it. Causes of sleep apnea include allergies, sinus problems, and genetics. Those that are male, overweight, prone to allergies and over 40 are at a higher risk of sleep apnea.
Those that are affected by sleep apnea experience symptoms not only at night. The inability to breathe properly while sleeping results in repercussions throughout the day, including tiredness, grumpiness, lack of concentration, blurred vision and memory problems. At night, it can be recognised by shallow breathing, irregular breathing patterns, snoring/choking sounds and sleep paralysis. Untreated sleep apnea can result in the development of other health conditions.
“ I purchased my Salin Plus after hearing about it on the News. I had just previously taken a sleep apnea test and was told I had quite severe sleep apnea, I tested a CPAP Machine for a month but failed to get on with it. So when I heard about the Salin Plus I felt I had nothing to lose, purchased one and have never looked back. I take it everywhere with me. My husband tells me it has stopped my sleep apnea and snoring, he was constantly listening out for me to stop breathing. So it affected his sleep pattern, but amazingly enough it has also stopped his snoring.
One night he went to bed before me and hadn't put the machine on consequently he was snoring, when I switched the machine on he stopped, it is amazing I will be honest I didn't really expect it to work as well as it has. I have just purchased my first replacement filter. Very happy with my purchase” - Jacky Kemp
