Sleep disorders: a practical guide for Australian health care practitioners.
A major investment of both time and money has seen the publication of a Medical Journal of Australia supplement on Sleep Disorders. It is intended that this will become a major tool in the education of health professionals on the importance of sleep health, as well as diagnosis and best practice treatment of sleep disorders. The supplement is now available on the SHF website. To view or download, please click here.
Why do people snore?
About 40% of men have at least mild snoring, on at least some nights. This number is smaller for women (around 30%). About 15% of people snore on most nights. People of any age can snore. Even some children have a problem with snoring (see Childhood Snoring and Obstructive Sleep Apnea).
