If you are awaiting a Sleep Study to confirm diagnosis of Sleep Apnoea or have been newly diagnosed, the information on these pages will help you understand the diagnostic process and treatment. It does not replace the guidance and advice you should seek from your Medical Professional. The Glossary of Terms may help you understand some of the words that may be used
