Do you snore loudly and hold your breath during sleep? or just do not sleep well and  are sleepy during daytime? You may have sleep apnoea!.

Put your questions to our expert, consultant respiratory physician Dr Himeder Makker. Sleep apnoea is a relatively common condition where the walls of the throat relax and narrow during sleep, interrupting normal breathing.  The result? Loud snoring and excessive tiredness which can have a huge impact on all aspects of life.  Dr Makker established the sleep service at University College Hospital where he continues to run weekly sleep clinics.  Dr Makker is involved in extensive research into sleep apnoea and as a recognised expert in the field, organises study days for other healthcare professionals.
