• In many cases, treatment has been shown to reduce the symptoms of sleep apnoea, such as daytime sleepiness, depressed mood, reduced memory and concentration, and reduced quality of life (especially in the areas of work performance and family relationships)
• Untreated sleep apnoea is also associated with symptoms including dizziness, shortness of breath and chest discomfort, which may be reduced when your sleep apnoea is treated
