Sleep is important for our physical health. It allows the body to rest, and to heal and repair itself from the rigours of life.
Continued sleep deficiency has been linked to an increased risk of heart disease, kidney disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, and stroke. Adequate sleep is a key part of a healthy lifestyle.
Some people suffer from regularly disturbed sleep, often as a result of breathing abnormalities linked to upper airway resistance. Linde sleep therapy services are designed for patients with sleep-disordered breathing (SDB) difficulties, which can range from snoring to obstructive sleep apnoea (or hypopnoea). Obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA) is a common medical condition affecting up to one in 20 adults.
