Sleep Apnea Or Sleep Apnoea? Which Is It?!!

Submitted by: John Arthur

If you’re in the business of getting people to stop snoring or if you are one of the 250,000 Australians that have already been diagnosed with OSA, then you’d presumably be pretty familiar with the word …but do you know how to spell it?

Although there have been many creative, erroneous variations in spelling these two words, (probably attempted by many who need a snoring cure!) …such as sleep apnia, sleep apneea, sleep apneoa, sleep apnear …the truth is, there are actually two correct answers but none of the aforementioned. Sleep Apnea and Sleep Apnoea are both correct. Sleep Apnea is used in the United States and Sleep Apnoea in the United Kingdom, while Australia tends to use both versions.

Either way you fancy, getting people to stop snoring and getting treated for Sleep Apnea is a serious business and can be dangerous if left undiagnosed. Many businesses today offer a snoring cure and treatment for OSA and the most effective is the CPAP machine. ResSleep, a ResMed spinoff company is one of the most exciting new organisations on the Australian scene, with 5 locations in Brisbane, Sydney (2 clinics), Gosford and Melbourne. And more locations will be announced shortly… watch this space.

Sleep disorders affect millions of people in Australia, however, awareness is low and up to 90% of people with sleep disorders remain undiagnosed and untreated.

Alongside Sleep Physicians we will execute field activities to educate the general public, GPs and other referring doctors so that more people can undergo a Sleep Apnea test and be treated with a snoring device to combat OSA.
