Cure your snoring visit 'sleep lab' at NH

The first ever 'Sleep Lab' in Sri Lanka is open at the Colombo National Hospital. Persons who have sleeping disorders, especially snoring, can obtain treatment from this lab in the ENT Unit.

The ENT clinics are conducted on every Monday, Wednesday and Friday, a Healthcare and Nutrition Ministry spokesman said. He said the sleep lab opened last week is under the purview of three ENT specialists, Dr. Chandra Jayasuriya, Dr. R.P Dayasena and Dr. S.C. Perera.

Patients who suffer from Obstructive Sleep Apnoea (OSA) have two options, to get it cured through an operation which opens the respiratory track or use a special machine to breath while sleeping.

According to the spokesman, the majority of persons who snore in their sleep suffer from OSA and snoring can be a symptom of a fatal disease.

But most patients do not know it and ignore snoring considering it as something normal. People snore when the oxygen supply to the lungs become weak.
