Our expert says:
Your partner may be suffering from obstructive sleep apnoea syndrome (OSAS), a condition with serious outcomes if not managed. He/she will need an ENT examination of the upper airway to exclude possible reasons of obstruction ie. deviated septum, enlarged base of tongue, etc. Then a sleepstudy should be performed to establish the degree and severity of the OSAS. Only then can a suggestion be made regarding treatment. This condition should not be ignored, as it also effects your quality of life, ie daytime tiredness and constant somnulance.
