had difficulty in breathing when asleep ... so went to polyclinic.

 

polyclinic then refer me to CGH A&E for heart and lungs tests.

 

now the CGH dr refer me to ENT for sleep clinic.

 

so i guess i should be under subsidized ... if not, the bill might kill me if the disorder doesn't.

 

but before the procedure, i am required to go thru the sleep clinic for them to monitor me when i am sleeping.

 

so would like to find out more about the sleep clinic first ...

Are you obese? If so, go lose weight. I've had apnea issue also and have been using CPAP for a couple of years. After losing over 10kg weight, I never need to use CPAP anymore. In the meanwhile, CPAP is still the gold standard. I don't really believe skin is so sensitive that you can't wear it. It's the matter of getting use to it.

Not everybody will benefit from surgery.

Sleep study is to assess the level of apnoea you are experiencing. The ENT will assess you see if surgery is helpful for you.

 

CPAP is still the gold standard.

Best is to lose weight if you're overweight.

U need sleep aid respiratory and pillow


The respiratory machine about 1.xk
Pillow not sure how much



Cheaper alternative, exercise and slim down, when sleep don't put pillow too high as it might block ur respiratory throat. Make urself tired so can sleep better
Dont get confused between my personality & my attitude...

My personality is who I am...

My attitude depends on who you are...

Go get from cpap.com.

 

Local price here is too expensive, though I can't blame them. I've used puritan bennett goodknight sleep 420E for a couple of years until it kaput. Those time, it was made in France, can really tahan. Cost me like 600+ USD back then. In SG, if I not mistaken will be cost SGD2K. I then bought another unit, for 300+ USD and I used it for awhile before going for lifestyle change and weightloss program. The CPAP machine is now collecting dust in my cabinet.... :-D

SGH sleep clinic: They stick sensors on head and body, hook these up to a machine, and monitor you throughout the night (room get infrared camera). They then assess your condition to see how chialat and suggest treatment options.

I forgot the cost but my brother went for it at Khoo Teck Puat. They hook you up with monitoring devices to collect data.

Yup, although the site requires medical letter, I gave them a letter written by GP and they also accept.

I did my sleep study at SGH (B2 ward) for a day, costs was $500+... but after medisave and insurance, didn't pay a single cent.

 

Shortly after, was issued a prescription for a CPAP machine (Trial for 1 month - Philips model), but mask have to purchase (due to hygience reasons). Mask costs $187.50 (was told it was subsidsed but i doubt it).

 

After i returned the machine, i realised there is a website that sells the machine at a better price. Try out

http://w-w-w.secondwindcpap.com/ (i'm not related to the webby), and i got myself a low-hr Resmed Autoset S9 w/o humidifier $479 + $75 (postage). Definately cheaper than a $1800 new set in SG, if you dun mind a slightly used set (with new tubings). When i received mine, it only had about 50hrs used, so its not bad.

 

I just bought a mask from them too, so they are very reliable.

 

Hope this helps.

An underactive thyroid can also cause sleep apnea.

Sleep study can also be done at home.  I got mine done in my own home.  They came to set up everything for me and then came back the next day to collect the machines and data.
