Sleep Apnea

Are you tired? Do you snore? You may be suffering from Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA)

Obstructive Sleep Apnea is a common sleep disorder characterized by recurrent episodes of partial or complete blockage of the upper airway during sleep. This obstruction leads to brief interruptions of breathing, resulting in disrupted sleep patterns and a range of health issues.

Some of the symptoms of OSA include day time tiredness, loud snoring, waking up gasping, need to frequently urinate at night and morning headaches.

The good news is that Obstructive Sleep Apnea is easily treated.  Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) is considered the gold standard and the most effective treatment for sleep apnea.

M-KEM sells a range of CPAP masks and machines – our trained staff can assist you in selecting the right products and equipment.
